  • Much like the Diamondbacks celebrated Hall of Famer Randy Johnson last week, the Atlanta Braves will be honoring their own tonight in John Smoltz.
  • The Diamondbacks are coming off a series where they scored 32 runs. Can they keep the offensive power going?
  • Earlier in the day, general manager Tony Stewart said the team plans on making Paul Goldschmidt a Diamondback for life.
  • The Diamondbacks begin the first game of a 10 game road trip that they should perform well on facing Atlanta and Cincinnati. Their toughest series will be against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
