Diamondbacks Use “Home Cooking” To Get Back On Top!

As the weather begins to really heat up in Arizona, so do the Diamondbacks.  While some say that they were just taking advantage of weaker competition in the form of the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins, Arizona’s slump seems to be coming to an end.  After scoring just 42 runs in their last 18 games prior, the Diamondbacks scored 42 runs in their last six-game home stand.

“We’ve still got a long ways to go” said Diamondbacks skipper, Torey Lovullo, when asked about the team’s latest performance at home.  And he’s right, the team does still have a long ways to go since it is only the beginning of June.  But it’s really good to see this offense clicking again.…

Nationals Don’t Play Nice In The Desert!

PHOENIX, AZ- The Washington Nationals are one of the hottest teams in baseball at this time.  On the other side, the Arizona Diamondbacks are officially in a “slump” that they badly need to get out of.  Let’s recap:

Coming into this series, the Diamondbacks had tied the Dodgers in two series, they beat the defending champs in a 3-game series, and they also went on the road and took two of three games in D.C..  As a matter of fact, coming into this series against the Nationals, the Arizona Diamondbacks had not lost a single series this season.  But……

Article by Jeff Demers | Heroes Media Group | May 12, 2018

PHOENIX- Stephen Strasburg went 6.2 innings for the Washington Nationals on Saturday afternoon, allowing only one run, and striking out nine.  The Arizona Diamondbacks have now dropped four games in a row, three to the Nationals, and are 3-7 in their last 10 games.

Despite the bad last two weeks (about), Arizona has managed to keep a three game lead over the Rockies in the NL West.  If it wasn’t for the fact that all of the teams are in losing streaks right now in the NL West, this lead would have been gone days ago.  Despite the slide, there are still some positives.  But I’m not …

How To Thank A Veteran

I’ve had this message in my head for a while now, and I have shared it verbally with friends, and even some people that I have never met before.  And now, it’s time to put it down on paper (or on screen).  As an Army veteran, I’m very proud of my service.  There were a couple different roads that I could have went down as a teenager.  I could have tried to get into college.  I could have continued working at the local grocery store.  I could have just as easily done nothing with my life and just been a regular nobody who went to high school in a small town about 45 minutes Northeast from Boston.

But, I decided …
