D-backs outfielder Gerardo Parra hits bunt double against Mets.
Arizona Diamondbacks right fielder Gerardo Parra turned a bunt base hit into a double during the fifth inning of their July 4th matchup against the New York Mets.
Parra bunted the ball through the right side of the infield and hustled to second when he saw Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy forced to chase the ball into short right field, giving Parra a double. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, a bunt double. How often do you see that?
Then again, maybe we shouldn't be that surprised, as this was the Mets, after all.

NOT THE BALL'S FAULT
Your browser does not support iframes. Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado stomped on the baseball in frustration after being unable to field a slow roller during Wednesday night's game against the New York Mets. It happened in the first inning as Mets batter Eric Young hit the grounder to third, which was slowed down a bit due to a wet field. Prado had to run...

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was caught on camera as he appeared to be licking some bats on the dugout steps during Monday night's game at Citi Field against the New York Mets.
Montero put his mouth to the barrel of two bats to select which one he was going to use for his seventh inning at-bat, and after this video went...
PHOENIX -- Tyler Skaggs gave the Diamondbacks exactly what they needed Friday night.
With the D-backs' bullpen running on fumes and the starting rotation having scuffled for the better part of a month, Skaggs stepped into the breach with the best outing of his young career in a 5-0 victory over the Rockies.
On the day he was recalled from Class AAA Reno, the young left-hander...
As if the Diamondbacks needed anything else to go wrong, Willie Bloomquist is now going to miss more time, hitting the disabled list for the second time this season. The team announced the veteran infielder was being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a contusion on his left hand. He was hit by a pitch last Wednesday against the Nationals in Washington, but x-rays confirmed...
To make room for Friday night’s starter Tyler Skaggs and to bring up some bullpen relief in Charles Brewer, Chaz Roe and Tony Campana were sent down to Triple-A Reno.
The Diamondbacks are amid their only series at Citi Field in New York this season, but at least two D-backs could be making a return trip there in two weeks.
With rosters for the 2013 MLB All-Star Game being announced Saturday, the D-backs should have at least two players on their way back to New York for the July 16 game.
First baseman Paul Goldschmidt is widely considered a...
PHOENIX -- It took just four days for Diamondbacks fans to donate more than 100,000 to victims of the Yarnell fire -- a figure matched by the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation -- so the D-backs charitable arm announced Friday that it would match another 100,000 for contributions made through dbacks.com19.
The generosity of our fans over the past four days has been truly inspirational...
PHOENIX -- In their first home game since the tragic Yarnell Hill fire, the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday paid an emotional tribute to the 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shots who lost their lives last week.
The Diamondbacks and the visiting Colorado Rockies wore black caps with "Prescott Fire Dept." lettered on the crest during batting practice and the national anthem, and...
When it comes to picking the right piece of equipment player have their own methods--some stranger than others--to help them pick the right stuff. Sometimes its something simple like getting the feel for the weight of a bat and taking a few swings, and sometimes its something a lot more intimate.
Like a little tongue action.
Up until the past week and a half, the road had been fairly kind to the Diamondbacks. They were 20-18 away from Chase Field and had won some big games in opponents' parks.
But then came a brutal 10-game East Coast swing that probably has the D-backs clamoring for the comforts of home, especially after playing 14 total extra innings and sitting through more than four hours of...
Randall Delgado outpitched Matt Harvey for his first major league win in more than a year, and the Arizona Diamondbacks snapped a five-game skid with a 5-3 victory over the New York Mets after a long rain delay Wednesday night.
Cody Ross hit a three-run homer off Harvey to put Arizona ahead, and Delgado struck out a career-high nine in seven innings to give the NL West leaders their...
Tyler Skaggs came up this time with a little more riding on his start. Trade rumors have swirled, the bullpen has been overworked, and the Diamondbacks went over three weeks without a starter win before Randall Delgado’s performance in New York.
Evening all and thanks for joining me for this game. It took place on Monday evening July 1, 2013. There are currently terrible forest fires in Arizona and 19 members of one unit were lost. This blog is dedicated to the guys in The Granite Mountain Hot Shots and their families, located in Yarnell Arizona.
The game is being played at Citi Field In New York, the home of the NY...
