Great anecdotes of our sport of baseball defy cold statistical analysis. The truth of the matter is that anything under the sun can happen for a player at any time. Ryan Roberts had never hit a grand slam in his professional life and now he's had two in his last six games. That's not putting down analysis. That way of looking at baseball is fun too. And it doesn't matter...
PHOENIX Jubilant Ryan Roberts ripped off his jersey at the plate the last time he hit a grand slam.It remains to be seen if his second slam in eight days took any starch out of the Milwaukee Brewers.The Diamondbacks recorded their major league-high 49th comeback victory of the season in a 10-6 win over the Brewers in Game 4 of the National League Division Series at Chase Field on...
PHOENIX -- In Games 1 and 2 of the NL Division Series between the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks, intentional walks -- whether real or proposed -- factored prominently into both Milwaukee wins.
The trend continued as the series shifted to Arizona for Game 3 Tuesday, but roles were reversed as an intentional pass swung things in the Diamondbacks' favor and they avoided...
There is no more grueling position in baseball than catcher. But there is no telling that to Miguel Montero, or to any of his D-backs teammates who have watched him throughout this breakout season.
It goes without saying the D-backs really would like to finally see closer J.J. Putz make his postseason debut in Game 3 of the National League Division Series, since that would mean a chance at a series-saving victory.
Score and situation: The Arizona Diamondbacks joined the Yankees and the Cardinals on the 'never say die' train with a 10-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. The victory ties the series at two and forces a decisive Game 5 back in Wisconsin on Friday. It marks the first time since 2001 that the first round has seen three series go the distance.
Ian Kennedy has his wish: another crack at the Brewers, a second chance to win a playoff game and the responsibility of having the D-backs' season resting in his right hand.
Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam and tied a franchise postseason record with five RBIs, fellow Arizona rookie Josh Collmenter befuddled Milwaukee batters again and the Diamondbacks stayed alive in the NL division series with a 8-1 rout of the Brewers on Tuesday night.
With the D-backs' season hanging in the balance, manager Kirk Gibson handed the ball to his rookie right-hander. There was never a doubt in Josh Collmenter's mind that his skipper chose the right man for the job.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look to complete their biggest rally of the season today when they face the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 5 with a berth in the NL Championship Series at stake.
Ryan Roberts hit a grand slam, Chris Young had the first two-homer game in Arizona's postseason history and Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-6 Wednesday night to force Game 5 in the NL division series.
Miguel Montero comes up once again with a runner in scoring position, and once again he delivers. The Diamondbacks catcher singles up the middle and the DBacks lead the Brewers 3-1 in the bottom of the third.
A ball in the dirt leads to an out, however, as Montero tries up move up to second, and on the throw Justin Upton tries to score from third. Rickie Weeks cuts the ball...
It appears that some things hold true no matter the sample size. During the regular season, the Arizona Diamondbacks scored 400 runs at home, the second-highest total in the National League behind only Colorado. Away from the Chase Field aircraft carrier, Arizona scored just 331 runs, ninth in the Senior Circuit.
Through four games of the Snakes' NLDS series against the Brewers...
