Could be a Diamondbacks “Moving Day”

By Scott Allen

They don’t even have to take the field and ground can be gained.  That works just fine for me.  The Arizona Diamondbacks can move a half-game closer to the San Francisco Giants tonight if they lose to the Philadelphia Phillies.  As of post time, the Phillies had a 2-0 lead.

The Arizona Diamondbacks had the luxury of an off-day before they get to it tomorrow night for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The Dbacks just won two of three in Los Angeles last weekend and won two of three against the Dodgers three weeks ago at Chase Field.

Because of winning the series with the Giants, the Dbacks are going to start tomorrow’s series with Josh Collmenter.  Originally the Dbacks were going to skip Collmenter.  Winning two of three gave the Dbacks the luxury of sending him out to the mound after stuggling his last time out against the Dodgers.
