The Diamondbacks sent Brandon Pfaadt to the mound to face off against Aaron Judge and the Yankees. Predictable things followed.

Snake Bytes 9/20: They Might be Giants (Killers)

One of my favorite catchphrases for smallball baseball is, "Speed kills." The Snakes showed why on Tuesday night when their speed on the bases created havoc of a sort that put the Diamondbacks in the driver’s seat, both for the game and for the playoffs.

After a poor showing against the division rival Dodgers, the Snakes turned things around against the best team in the AL.

Snake Bytes 8/30: Make It Stop

The Diamondbacks sent workhorse Merrill Kelly to the mound to get right against the Dodgers. But, the righty was unable to alter his terrible history against L.A.

Snake Bytes, 8/27: Entering boss level

I hope we brought our power-ups.

Snake Bytes 8/26: Craziness in the Desert Leads to Snake Celebration

A collision in shallow left, fan interference on a play at the wall, Gabi hits a triple, Martinez surrenders a salami, and Pfaadt notches his first win - all in the same game.

Snake Bytes 8/23: Chasing Down a Wild Card

In completing the two-game sweep of the Rangers, the Diamondbacks took control of the final NL Wild Card slot in the standings.

The offense and bullpen combined to spoil a gem by Brandon Pfaadt and Mother Nature has decided to change the schedule.

Snake Bytes 8/16: What Is Going On Here?

There were so many things about last night’s game that simply defied most logic. But, the Snakes won, and that’s almost all that matters.

Snake Bytes, 8/13: It's A Celebration

Big crowd, alumni on hand, and the end of a losing streak.

With the trade deadline only three days away, the Diamondbacks are no longer playing like a team that should be buying, putting Mike Hazen in a tough spot.

Snake Bytes 7/26: Stopping the Skid

Arizona began the process of righting the ship last night, stopping the losing streak and hopefully starting a winning one.

Snake Bytes, 7/25: The Sheriff gets gunned down

Nobody is happy with last night’s display

Snake Bytes, 7/24: Better Reds than Duds...

There's no place like home... There's no place like home...

Snake Bytes 7/19: Hand Egg Season Arrives Early

The Diamondbacks and Braves combined for more runs than one might expect points in a Cardinals/Falcons game.
