So after winning 10 out of the last 11 and sweeping 3 out of 4 series. How many games did we pick up on the Rockies?.... Well s**t. And they won it last night HOW??? @*&$@!
Let me just read the news....
D-backs rally to earn seventh straight win - The D-backs scored the game-tying run in the ninth, avoided being the victims of a walk-off blooper by a few inches in the bottom of the inning and got a game-winning homer from an unlikely candidate.
Paul Goldschmidt has reached a new level - Go back through the archives of any website that covers MLB and you're nearly guaranteed to find at least one piece every season since 2013 that talks about how underappreciated Paul Goldschmidt is. A trove of articles can be found trying to give the supremely talented and annually overlooked Arizona first baseman his due, even here at Beyond the Box Score, where our readers are much more than casual fans.
Diamondbacks more guarded with medical updates - Center fielder A.J. Pollock played in his first rehab game on Saturday, but when he might return to the Diamondbacks from a groin injury has not been made public. Left fielder Yasmany Tomas is progressing from a groin issue of his own, but even a rough timetable for his return hasn’t been disclosed.
Arizona Diamondbacks (44–26, plus-89, LT: 6) - As much as the baseball media has become more enlightened about awards voting, some old biases die hard. Greg Holland and Jake McGee and a whole bunch of young starting pitchers are suddenly kicking ass in Colorado, so only now can we start thinking of Nolan Arenado as a legitimate MVP candidate?
Confidence rises with seven-game winning streak - Maybe these comeback wins from the Arizona Diamondbacks should not surprise any longer. Perhaps this team reached the portion of the schedule where their mettle has been tested and, going forward, the Diamondbacks learned how to win and survive.
Reno Aces celebrate Star Wars with Chewbacca bandolier uniforms - I know this isn’t specifically DBacks related, but I thought it was just so cool of the organization to do.
