PHOENIX- The Washington Nationals got the scoring going immediately as Turner would lead off with a home run just over the wall in Left Field.  The shot was Trea Turners 4th home run of the year, and his 7th lead-off home run of his career.  Bryce Harper would follow that shot up with a blast off the Center Field wall for a double.  Koch would get the next 3 Nationals batters on a pair of fly-outs and a ground out to second base.

The Diamondbacks would strand a total of three runners in scoring position in both the 1st and 2nd …

The Arizona Diamondbacks have now won their seventh straight series to begin the season!  With the 4-2 win tonight, The “Dbacks” became the first team in 15 seasons to accomplish this feat of starting their season by winning their first seven series.  The last team to accomplish this milestone was the 2003 San Francisco Giants.  Ironically, the Giants then went on the road to play the Philadelphia Phillies, and lost that series two games to one.  Who do the Diamondbacks have next?  Yep, it’s the Philadelphia Phillies, on the road.

BUT I DON’T BELIEVE IN COINCIDENCE……..when I don’t want to.…

The problem tonight was (for the first

Diamondbacks Win In Historic Game At Chase Field!

The Arizona Diamondbacks Walk-Off in 15 Innings Against The Los Angeles Dodgers at Chase Field.

This is my fourth year covering the Arizona Diamondbacks.  They haven’t won an actual championship in almost 17 seasons. They are not flashy.  Most of the players on the Diamondbacks are highly underrated in my opinion.  The Diamondbacks organization itself has never been called out for making really big news.  Hell, The Diamondbacks aren’t even my favorite team, as everyone knows that my heart lies with my teams in Boston, where I was raised.
