Diamondbacks' May report card

Chris Young and Daniel Hudson missed a little more than half of the month after going on the disabled list...

D-backs notebook: Kennedy avoids 0-for-May

Ian Kennedy ended a career-long losing streak with a career-long outing Wednesday while keeping San Francisco two-time NL Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum in his personal funk. Neither staff ace had won in May until Kennedy ran his winning streak over the Giants to five games in the Diamondbacks' 4-1 victory at AT&T Park, which included Paul Goldschmidt's tie-breaking, bases...

Kennedy gives a little more, gets a little rest

The Diamondbacks were not afraid to let Ian Kennedy throw a career-high 122 pitches in a 4-1 victory at San Francisco on Wednesday for several reasons. Not only was Kennedy pitching well, but he also will have an extra day of rest before his next scheduled start because the D-backs had the day off on Thursday. Manager Kirk Gibson is a firm believer in keeping his starters in...

History shows there's hope for Arizona

That the Diamondbacks are not where they want to be after consecutive defeats in San Francisco is a given. "We're much better than this," manager Kirk Gibson said after the 3-1 loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

Postgame Wrap: Good as Goldschlager

Fee-fi-fo-fum! I smell the blood of a Diamondback. Be he live, or be he dead,: I'll grind his bones to make my bread. I really wonder what’s going through Paul Goldschmidt’s mind right now.
