I know I’m crazy, but how about I ask once, just once, the Arizona Diamondbacks win a game where they lead from start to finish? I realize they are quickly being known as the comeback kids, especially after yesterday’s 8-6 amazing come from behind win over the Milwaukee Brewers, but it seems to me a lot of the time there is no sense of urgency until they’ve fallen behind.
Of course tonight that probably won’t happen. Zach Duke takes the mound in a game that easily could be over before your butt gets warm in your chair. He faces Randy Wolf, who has had success against the Dbacks. I can imagine that losing consecutive games after holding 6-1 leads also is weighing heavily on the Brewers. I have a hard time believing something like that will happen again this evening.
Not only does taking a lead and protecting it good for the team, however also for the fans like myself. I don’t know how many games we can take like this? Granted, I will take a “w” anytime anyway, I prefer to take the route routinely traveled.
