Found September 26, 2012 on Fox Sports Arizona:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer and a pair of sacrifice flies for a career-high five RBIs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the NL West champion San Francisco Giants 7-2 on Tuesday night. Goldschmidt on his own gave Josh Collmenter (5-3) plenty of support as Arizona won for the seventh time in its last nine games. The D-backs are trying to keep their slim NL wild-card hopes alive. Aaron Hill had three hits and scored three runs, and Arizona also scored two of its runs on wild pitches on a cool night featuring swirling mist above the field in the early innings. Tim Lincecum (10-15) had his start pushed back two games from Sunday after San Francisco clinched its second division crown in three years with a win against San Diego on Saturday night.

Aaron Hill has had a great season

What a shame it is when a player has a fantastic season for a team that has never been in serious contention in a season. Aaron Hill has had such a season for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He did not make the All Star Team. His team is never considered for national television because they simply have not been a factor this season after winning their division last season. If you hear...

Ian Kennedy: The Hitter Who Doesn’t

I recall that Tangotiger likes to think of pitchers as batters as a control group. Here we have a bunch of non-hitters put into hitting situations, and so their statistics in such situations are worthy of investigation. The best control group might be American League pitchers, pitchers who’ve never been in the National League before — NL pitchers, obviously, get more than a little...
