  • D-backs’ Upton turns boos to cheers with one swing of the bat

    With one swing of the bat, Justin Upton lifted a weight off his shoulders and exorcised some demons. With Chris Young standing on second and Aaron Hill on first, the Diamondbacks right fielder crushed a 3-0 pitch from Jason Vargas onto the concourse in left-center, giving the D-backs an 8-5 lead and the 24-year-old something […]
  • D-backs’ GM weighs in on Ryan Roberts’ ups and downs

    Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Ryan Roberts has been through his share of highs and lows this season. After struggling through an abysmal April, Roberts has seemingly found his stride offensively over the past two months. While his contributions with the bat haven’t gone unnoticed, D-backs General Manager Kevin Towers has been concerned with the decline […]
  • D-backs’ GM Towers: ‘We’re going to make the playoffs’

    Arizona Diamondbacks General Manager Kevin Towers’ confidence in his club is contagious. He still believes wholeheartedly in his team’s chances to put together a run and make the playoffs. He is willing to go on record and state the D-backs will, in fact, play October baseball. “I think we’re as good as anybody in the […]
  • Upton leaves game with apparent leg injury; should be fine

    It was almost too good to be true for Justin Upton. The Diamondbacks right fielder, who has struggled for the majority of this season, hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning and singled in the sixth. Was it the beginning of a turnaround for the 24-year-old who entered the season as a popular NL […]
  • A closer look: D-backs outslug Mariners

So, we will give you a closer look, providing you with the analysis, quotes and notes from the D-backs’ June 20 win over Seattle. Final score: Diamondbacks 14, Mariners […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: Mariners just what the doctor ordered

    A series win over the Mariners was exactly what the doctor ordered for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 30 runs were the most Kirk Gibson’s squad has scored in any series this season. Yes, it was the Seattle Mariners, and yes, the D-backs didn’t see Felix Hernandez in this series, but after a tough road trip […]
  • The top 20 highest-paid Arizona athletes

    Earlier this week, Forbes Magazine published their list of the world’s one hundred highest-paid athletes. Their formula took into account base salary/winnings and endorsements. And using that formula, there was a couple of Phoenix athletes who figured into the list: pro golfer and former ASU Sun Devil Phil Mickelson (who ranked 7th on the list) […]
  • A closer look: D-backs pitching doesn’t match offense in loss to Mariners

    Sure, you could read the box score and know who won, but we all know that won’t tell you everything that happened in a baseball game. So, we will give you a closer look, providing you with the analysis, quotes and notes from the D-backs’ June 19 loss to the Mariners. Final score: Mariners 12, […]
  • ‘Pressing’ Young gets night off vs. Seattle

    Remember when the offensively struggling Arizona Diamondbacks were counting the days until injured center fielder Chris Young returned to their lineup? Young got off to a blistering start to the 2012 season, clubbing five home runs, driving in 13 runs and hitting .410 during an 7-4 start for the Diamondbacks. The veteran was injured April […]
  • D-backs’ Hill excited about cycle, confident in team

    Only four Diamondbacks had accomplished the feat before him, so it goes without saying Aaron Hill was excited about hitting for the cycle in Monday’s 7-1 win over the Mariners. The second baseman, acquired by the D-backs last season, has been hitting the ball well in June, as his .351 average over 15 games would […]
  • Joe Saunders to Baltimore? Orioles may have interest

    If in fact Joe Saunders’ days as an Arizona Diamondback are numbered, it appears one of the leading contenders for his services could be a team that has expressed interest in him once before. According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Baltimore Orioles pursued the lefty in the offseason and, according to major-league sources, “appear […]
  • D-backs’ Putz to auction off Justin Bieber autographed card

    From the moment Diamondbacks closer J.J. Putz pulled a Justin Bieber autographed card on June 13, its fate has been a consistent topic of debate. Would Putz save (haha, get it?) the card? How about give it to his daughters? Or, perhaps, in what would be a less likely, more dangerous incident, would a group […]
  • Gibson on Upton’s continuing struggles

    The most prevalent storyline for the 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks has been the lack of production from two-time All-Star right fielder Justin Upton. During the last home stand, Upton was baseball’s equivalent of a healthy scratch; he watched back-to-back victories over the Colorado Rockies from the Arizona dugout. After a scheduled day off for the team, […]
  • D-backs’ Hill hits for cycle against Mariners

    Arizona Diamondbacks’ second baseman Aaron Hill is on a tear — adding a storied baseball milestone to his résumé. The D-backs’ infielder hit for his first career cycle in a 7-1 win over the Seattle Mariners Monday. Needing a home run to complete the cycle, Hill took Mariners reliever Shawn Kelley deep in the seventh […]
  • Rumor: Red Sox willing to pay to move Youkilis

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have shown interest in Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis, but the former All-Star’s numbers (.215 batting average, four home runs, 13 RBI), injury history (played in just 39 games so far this year) and contract (more than $7 million left this year, $13 million team option for next season) have likely […]
  • A closer look: Miley, Hill help D-backs to win over Mariners

    Sure, you could read the box score and know who won, but we all know that won’t tell you everything that happened in a baseball game. So, we will give you a closer look, providing you with the analysis, quotes and notes from the D-backs’ June 18 victory over the Mariners. Final score: Diamondbacks 7, […]
  • D-backs’ back-to-back shutouts a rarity indeed

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have played 2,334 games since their inaugural season in 1998. On only seven occasions have they been shut out in back- to-back games by opponents. The seventh time occurred Sunday afternoon when Los Angeles Angels’ hurlers Garrett Richards and Ernesto Frieri combined on a 4-hit shutout in a 2-0 win. Saturday, it […]
  • Phoenix became a real sports town 20 years ago today

    June 18, 1992. I was just 27 days away from my 21st birthday. But instead of looking forward to going out and getting schnockered like most soon-to-be 21-year-olds, I had a sadness in my heart. The Phoenix Suns, tired of being a perennial 50-win team who bows out of the NBA Playoffs in the first […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs drop series to Angels

    The Diamondbacks knew their American League West interleague road swing against two of baseball’s elite teams, the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels, was going to be their toughest test of the season thus far. Unfortunately, they failed to answer the call. The D-backs were the victims of two consecutive shutout victories by the Angels […]
  • Interleague play is futile and skewed

    On Monday, the Diamondbacks will play host to the Seattle Mariners. You, of course, knew that. In fact, you’ve had June 18 marked on your calendar since late last September, when Major League Baseball released its 2012 schedule. Diamondbacks-Mariners, baby! If this doesn’t get the boys going, I don’t know what will. Actually, please forgive […]
