The Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder Chris Young has been given the night off and it is probably a good thing. Paul Goldschmidt and Ryan Roberts, both contributors last night, also got the night off. At the start of the night, I questioned Kirk Gibson for switching out a lineup that scored five last night, but I’ve got to learn Gibby knows what he is doing.
Collin Cowgill played center field tonight and has two more hits after his big start on Sunday. Sean Burroughs has two hits. Willie Bloomquist has scored three runs and has a hit. I’m telling you this has been anything but a dull team.
So, clearly the Dbacks can interchange players. Two weeks ago you couldn’t buy a hit for Cowgill or Burroughs. Now it seems they’ve hit a groove. Just goes to show you hitting and hitting while winning is contagious.
