All is Enright With the Dbacks

Barry Enright.  Before June, never heard of the guy.  Arizona Diamondbacks fans should be familiar with him now after a gem on Tuesday night to defeat the New York Mets 3-2.

Enright pitched eight innings and struck out eight, giving up just one run on five hits.  Juan "Long Gone" Gutierrez sure made it interesting in the ninth.  I purposely turned it off because I knew he would make it interesting.  He gave up a home run in the first save situation for the Dbacks in the Kirk Gibson era.  However, he prevailed in "nailing" down the save.

What is also amazing, this is the first win streak the Dbacks have had in the Gibson era.  He's been manager for almost three weeks now.  How sad.  Then again, the Dbacks have done everything but keep their fans happy in this miserable season so far.

After last night's 13-2 rout, the Dbacks won this one with pitching and some timely hitting.  Enright even helped his own cause with an RBI single.  I can't believe I'm saying this, but the Dbacks go for the sweep tomorrow.  I wouldn't count on it, but you never know.
