It took a while. It wasn’t always pretty. But, in the end, the Diamondbacks walked away with a series win versus the Giants.

San Francisco 2, Arizona 6
Tyler Gilbert was given the 5th starter nod for this one, which was actually more a bullpen game than anything. Arizona’s offense took most of the game to come around. But, once they started making their way through the Giants’ bullpen, they found their stroke and posted a...

Diamondbacks 6, San Francisco 2: Late-Breaking News

Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images

The offense slept late again, but once they finally woke up, oh my.

So it was fifth starter roulette again tonight for our Arizona Diamondbacks, and for good or ill we wound up with lefty Tyler Gilbert, he of last year’s flash-in-the-pan no-hitter, taking the mound for us, facing off against Giants lefty and familiar foe Alex Wood. I wasn’t expecting good things from Gilbert, honestly—after two decent starts in April, he was utterly...

His first start was amazing. His second start might have been amazing.

Did Brent Strom make a difference?

Albeit in his first game as a Diamondback Keuchel’s ERA+ was similar to his season average, Dallas Keuchel has the right stuff to be in the Diamondbacks rotation.

It is the track record, it is the reputation that helped him get to this point [to competing for the fifth starter...

Beer, hot dogs and a Diamondbacks victory. Happy Fourth of July!

Record: 36-44. Pace: 73-89. Change on 2021: +14.

After falling behind early, it looked like this was going be a rocky Independence Day for the D-backs. But they battled back, helped by some particular ineptness on the part of the Giants, to take the opening game of the series. While there may have been no fireworks after this contest, the Diamondbacks provided plenty during proceedings, with some...

The team will lean on Madison Bumgarner to come up big on the nation’s birthday

Carlos Rodon 7-4, 2.62 ERA vs. Madison Bumgarner 3-8, 3.63 ERA

Today is a big game. It’s the 4th of July, and a big holiday crowd is expected. (Big for here, perhaps 26-30K). The team will surely wish to put on a good performance and win a game in front of more fans than we’re used to seeing at...

For the first time this season, the Diamondbacks face off against the Giants

If it seems like it’s been a while since the Diamondbacks last played the Giants, you’d be correct. The last time was September 30, 2021, or just a tick over nine months ago. One big change, of course, is that Buster Posey is doing whatever it is Busters do after they retire. That alone is a massive change after him being the face of the Giants for so long. The other...
