Parra throws out runner, busts out finger wag

Diamondbacks right fielder Gerardo Parra is widely known to have one of the best arms in all of baseball. Over the past three seasons, while playing mostly in a part-time role in Arizona's crowded outfield, Parra has totaled nine, 12 and eight assists, with the middle number coming in 2011, when he earned his first Gold Glove. He also already has six assists this year, leading...

Bell believes he's better for Miami experience

PHOENIX -- Heath Bell will return to Miami this weekend as the same effective, efficient closer he was before he got there in 2012 and the one he has become again with five saves in the last nine games for the Diamondbacks. Logic points to Miami, the biggest variable, as the cause of the blip on the resume that last year became. Bell, however, will not point. He has taken the high...

Diamondbacks 9, Marlins 2

Paul Goldschmidt is one of the hottest hitters in baseball. Goldschmidt homered twice, tied his career high with four hits and drove in four runs to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Miami Marlins 9-2 on Friday night.

Injuries, lost production not deterring D-backs

PHOENIX -- There are a few teams every baseball season particularly troubled by a rash of injuries. It's nothing new; it just happens. This year, the Diamondbacks are one of those teams, having at different times been without their starting second baseman, closer, each of their projected starting outfielders and multiple infielders. Despite the injuries, the D-backs have remained...

Marlins designate Jon Rauch for assignment

Rauch was used in the Marlins loss on Friday night allowing two runs in an inning of work. This season Rauch compiled a 7.56 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP. There figures to be enough interest around the league to earn Rauch a spot in someones...

D-backs look to finish off sweep, win fifth straight

Facing an offensively challenged Miami team that's been particularly bad against left-handers lately, Wade Miley appears to be in a good spot to rebound from his worst outing of the season. Miley will try to keep the Marlins' bats quiet and lead the Diamondbacks to their fifth straight win in the finale of a three-game series at Marlins Park on Sunday. The D-backs (25-18...

Diamondbacks 1, Marlins 0

Brandon McCarthy Rebounds With Shutout of Marlins

McCarthy registered his third career shutout (his first since September 3, 2011 against the Seattle Mariners) in a 1-0 victory over the...

Marlins fan ask Giancarlo Stanton to school prom

There are still a few fans of the Miami Marlins out there. One of them recently asked the teams star Giancarlo Stanton to the prom. High school student Megan Diaz is a softball player in the Miami area and says that no other Marlins player will suffice. It may be all for naught though. By going to the prom with Diaz the Miami star would be missing a game on May 24th in Chicago against...
