Dbacks Head Into Game With A’s 2-2

By Scott Allen

Yusmeiro Petit will take the mound today as the Arizona Diamondbacks face the Oakland A’s down in Tucson.

On Saturday, the Diamondbacks fell to the Texas Rangers 6-4.  Mark Reynold had a double and walk and Chris Roberson hit a late home run in his push to make the 25 man roster.

The Dbacks are right about where I thought they would be at this point, at .500.  Get used to it.  Spring Training or not, this team will probably hover around .500 all season unless someone breaks out both on the mound an at the plate.

After tightness in his throwing arm the other day, Brandon Webb was scratched.  He will make his next scheduled start on Wednesday against the Mexican National Team.
