The road was not too kind to the Arizona Diamondbacks the past 10 days, thanks to the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies, Houston Astros, and San Francisco Giants. The only real complete game from both ends of things was last night in San Francisco, where the Dbacks won 11-0, maybe the best all-around game the Dbacks have played all season. Too bad it came on August 27th and not May or June 27th. Oh well.
The Dbacks return home to face the Houston Astros, who make their second trip to Chase Field this season. Max Scherzer is on the mound tonight. Yippee! I’m only looking for Mark Reynolds to hit number 40 tonight after hitting number 39 last night. Good luck Mark!
