Less than 24 hours after Paul Goldschmidt tied up the game and then won it later on, Aaron Hill did the same thing in the Diamondbacks 5-4 victory over this afternoon from Chase Field.
BEST OF MAXIM

There could not be a worse time for Baltimore Orioles closer Jim Johnson to have his late-inning demons reappear than right now, in the midst of a tight playoff race, and one that the O’s are not currently leading. Rock solid at the back end of the bullpen...
PHOENIX From walk-off hero to seat on the bench in less than 48 hours, Diamondbacks rookie center fielder Adam Eaton can now fully relate to the fickle nature of baseball fortune.
Eaton's comeuppance was tucked inside Tuesday nights 11-inning walk-off victory over the Orioles, the second in a row for the never-say-die Diamondbacks.
Eaton, was the hero in the first of the two...
=The Diamondbacks are adding even more speed to their outfield as Tony Campana was recalled from Triple-A on Wednesday. In a corresponding move, Arizona optioned Tyler Skaggs back to Reno.
PHOENIX The reasoning sounded pretty plausible.
"Well, I think every team want their guys to always keep playing hard," said Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt -- responding to a question about his team's considerable pluck -- roughly six hours before giving Arizona its second walk-off home run in the first two nights of a series against the Orioles.
Nothing like the classic Dubble Bubble shower to celebrate a walk-off. Arizona Diamondbacks’ Paul Goldschmidt, who is having an MVP-like year, won the game Tuesday versus the Orioles after tying the game in the ninth with a home-run, then hitting the walk-off in the eleventh. To celebrate, his teammates dosed him twice with bubble gum, and then some water. Celebrate the good times...
The Orioles have supported the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), a non-profit shelter that accepts and cares for all animals in need and promotes responsible pet ownership for a more humane community in Baltimore City, through pet calendar sales and player appearances at the shelter over the last several years, raising close to $100,000 for the organization through...
On paper, it is easy to say that the Baltimore Orioles pulled off a coup in the trade that brought them 1B Chris Davis from Texas. They traded RHP Koji Uehara and also received RHP Tommy Hunter in the July 31, 2011 trade. The fact that Uehara left the Rangers after the 2012 season to sign with the Boston Red Sox as a free agent makes it a clear win for the Orioles. Davis has had...
EASTLAKE – The Lake County Captains defeated the South Bend Silver Hawks 1-0 due to several scoreless innings from reliever Luis Morel on Thursday night.
Arizona Diamondbacks' 2013 first-round pick Braden Shipley (0-1, 1.80) made his Low-A debut for the Silver Hawks. Shipley, a right-hander out of the University of Nevada, previously started eight games with the short-season...
Andrelton Simmons of the Atlanta Braves and Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles are both in their second seasons and first full seasons. Simmons is 23 and Machado is 21. And both are already the best fielders at their positions in baseball. In fact, the seasons they are having in the field are downright historic.
We all know that fielding statistics are not yet perfect. As...
Aaron Hill had a game-ending single with one out in the 14th inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 5-4 victory over Baltimore on Wednesday and a three-game sweep of the Orioles.
All three victories came in walk-off fashion. Baltimore led all three games entering the seventh.
Hill forced extra innings with an RBI single in the ninth off Jim Johnson in the Orioles closer'...

Chris Davis appears to be on one of his homer binges, helping the Baltimore Orioles produce at a high rate offensively on their road trip.
Now they're hoping their pitching can get back on track at Chase Field.
Miguel Gonzalez will try to avoid a third consecutive loss and lead the Orioles to their fifth win in seven games Tuesday night against...
The Cleveland Indians placed corner infielder Mark Reynolds on release waivers yesterday, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer, and the next step will be offering the slugger his unconditional release. Several teams figure to express interest in Reynolds once he reaches his discounted rate, but his former team, the Baltimore Orioles, have been most-tied to him since he was...

PHOENIX -- Paul Goldschmidt hit the first pitch of the 11th inning for a game-ending home run after leading off the ninth with a tying homer, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Baltimore 4-3 on Tuesday night for their second straight walkoff victory over the Orioles.
Arizona won the series opener on Monday when Adam Eaton hit the first pitch...
The Baltimore Orioles return home from a painful series in the desert with Jim Johnson's job possibly in jeopardy.
Buck Showalter, however, isn't about to make any wholesale changes and plans to stick with his beleaguered closer.
The Orioles try to put a disappointing stretch behind them Friday night when they open a three-game set against the Colorado Rockies.
