Diamondbacks News:

Dbacks 4, GIants 5

From the article: Well, here we are again Pitters. Ten losses in a row. The longest losing streak since 2010. 4-and-20 record for the month of May. How did we get there tonight you ask? Just grab yourself a morning shower beer, and I will explain it to you.

New Era Arizona Diamondbacks ‘local market’ cap with burrito criticized, pulled from site

From ed: After a Dbacks game my usual spot for food before I hit home is a Filibertos or Eribertos... Humbertos... Los Bertos, or Isbertos. TBH Federicos is aite and on occasion I may settle for a generic, but I’m 100% gonna order the #14, bro. That’s TWO carne asada burritos with no pico but add guacamole with a side of rice and beans. Don’t even ask me what hot sauces I want just fill the bag like this is a bank robbery, son. Those burritos always cap a good time with friends, baseball, and many of Turmabar IPA’s. With that said, let’s look at this hat. The burrito on the hat looks like a bandaged thumb or cartoon mummy extremity and I would never eat that. It’s like the people who approved that design have never even seen a burrito, let alone eaten one. At least flip the burrito around so the eating part in on top and not slouched down off the corner of the plate (hat) like a soggy over-greased limp chimi. SMH.

Zac Gallen nearing bullpen work

The Blurb: Gallen (elbow) is expected to throw off flat ground and throw a bullpen session in the coming week, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Throwing off a mound is a significant step for the right-hander, although he would require a few weeks to build up arm strength and endurance for a return to the rotation. Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen had previously said that Gallen would require more imaging after a period of not throwing; however, the GM was uncertain if that was still in the plans.

Eat Diamondback Rattlesnake? Rustler’s Rooste’s most popular dish

From the article: So where does this authentic western diamondback rattlesnake come from? Head Chef Frank Gonzalez said the reptiles are sent to the restaurant after professional roundups are done twice a year in Texas and Oklahoma. The snakes are swooped up when they are denning, a hibernation tactic which basically means a slithering ball of rattlesnakes, and their carcasses are shipped to Phoenix.
