Teams to share spring site on tribal land

Posted by GameSetMatch on 16th July 2009

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies are NL West rivals. Now they’re partners in a spring training facility planned for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community near Phoenix.

Under an agreement announced Thursday, the tribe will build an 11,000-seat ballpark and a complex that includes 12 practice fields, training facilities and offices. The facility is expected to be ready for the 2011 exhibition season. The 140-acre site is adjacent to Scottsdale. It is believed to be the first major league spring training facility on tribal land.

Upton, Garland lead Diamondbacks over Marlins

Posted by GameSetMatch on 13th July 2009

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been a different team since the biggest blown lead in their history.

All-Star Justin Upton matched a career high with four hits, Jon Garland allowed one run in eight innings and the Diamondbacks beat the Florida Marlins 5-1 on Saturday night.
The Diamondbacks have won back-to-back games and outscored Florida 13-1 since the Marlins hit them with a 10-spot in the eighth inning of the series opener, when Arizona let a 7-0 lead turn into a 14-7 loss

Streaking D-backs rally to sweep Padres

Posted by GameSetMatch on 9th July 2009

It took more than three months and 85 games, but the D-backs finally swept a series.

A five-run eighth inning helped the D-backs beat the Padres, 6-2, on Wednesday afternoon in front of 20,791 at Chase Field. Arizona is now the hottest team in baseball, having won five straight. “Shhh, don’t tell anybody,” D-backs manager A.J. Hinch said. Not only did the victory give them a sweep and continue their winning streak, it also got the D-backs out of last place in the National League West for the first time since June 7.

Posted by GameSetMatch on 6th July 2009

The Arizona Diamondbacks had two players named to the 2009 National League All-Star team on Sunday.

Zavada trounces adversity to fit in 'pen

Posted by GameSetMatch on 2nd July 2009

Left-handed reliever Clay Zavada has garnered plenty of national attention this season for his unique mustache. His facial hair, which is comparable to the mustache Hall of Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers once sported, thrust him into the spotlight when he was recalled from Double-A Mobile on May 12.

But with the way he has pitched, that focus will soon be turning to his pitching. In 19 games, Zavada is 1-1 and hasn’t allowed an earned run. But don’t tell him he’s been flawless. “I haven’t been perfect at all,” Zavada said. “I’ve messed up things. I haven’t been [anywhere] near close to perfect.” Zavada has not been completely flawless, but he’s come close. Opponents are hitting just .203 against him in his first season in the Major Leagues.

D-backs' Haren homers, shuts down Reds

Posted by GameSetMatch on 1st July 2009

D-backs starter Dan Haren tried to hide the smile as he jogged around the bases Tuesday against the Reds.

Moments before, he had just hit the first home run of his career to left field to give the D-backs a six-run lead in the sixth inning. Forgive Haren for smiling. In a midst of a five-game losing streak, he and his teammates had very few reasons to be happy.
