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, this run-scoring disparity is again holding true. Granted, Arizona faced worse Milwaukee pitching in Games Three and Ffour, but the season-long trend is continuing for the D-backs.

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...
TBS finally earned decent numbers for the Brewers/Diamondbacks National League Division Series, but not before TNT earned yet another record-low audience for Game 3.

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.

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.
In what can arguably be described as one of the most impressive strikes in the history of baseball, Foundation for Blind Children graduate Max Ashton threw a perfect strike prior to Game 4 of the 2011 NLDS between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Milwaukee Brewers on Oct. 5.

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...
