Reviewing the Diamondbacks’ biggest comebacks

Reviewing the Diamondbacks’ biggest comebacks

A reminder that, even when you’re down by six runs, there’s always hope... Tuesday saw the Diamondbacks tie a franchise record, coming back from six runs down to beat the Padres. It was the tenth in team history after trailing by such a margin, and the first in just over seven years. I thought on the off-day, it might be fun to go through all of them, and see which were particularly memorable. So, below you’ll find details of each. Included for the game is the lowest Win Probability at any point in the game, as shown on Fangraphs. The header links to the box-score. Note:...

Arizona Diamondbacks: July confidence poll

Arizona Diamondbacks: July confidence poll

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Not the June for which we were looking... June results The Diamondbacks had a winning record in the month of May, for the first time since 2017, going 15-14. While in doubt until the final game, it’s still a VAST improvement on the same period last year, when the Diamondbacks had one of the worst months in recent baseball history (well, until June 2021), going 5-24. A ten-game improvement is pretty good, and the winning record is probably all the more impressive, considering the team was 0-8 against the Dodgers that month (and so went 15-6...

Diamondbacks Reacts Survey: Tell us about Torey!

Photo by Dylan Buell/ What do you think about the D-backs’ manager this season? Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the MLB. Each week we ask questions of the most plugged-in Arizona Diamondbacks fans and fans across the country. This week, it’s time for you to tell us what you think about manager Torey Lovullo this season. Last year, he was in charge of a team which stumbled their way to 110 losses, almost the worst in franchise history. But, it was generally accepted by most, that the record was not particularly Torey’s fault. This year - much...

Your Random D-Back Uniform: 4th of July (part 1)

Photo by Ralph Freso/ As announced in the Father’s Day uniform article, with 4th of July coming up, we take a look at the Diamondbacks’ special event gear for this day. In this article we cover the years 2009-2015. Since MLB 4th of July caps and gear have been around quite some time, I will make this a two series article. While Nelly was partying hard with “Hot in Herre” (btw recently the woman he danced around with passed away), MLB teams started to wear special 4th of July designed caps for the first time in 2002, as a reaction to the September 11 attacks the...

Patrick Breen / USA TODAY NETWORK Diamondbacks shut out, AGAIN Diamondbacks News: Padres 4, D-backs 0: Offense takes a step back “It was just one of those days we couldn’t really get anything going,” Rojas said. “I don’t know what to attribute that to. I know I just was sitting on pitches and didn’t get them. One at-bat I tried to do a little too much and just missed it. I just think that was the theme throughout the day across the lineup — not getting the pitch you’re looking for or trying to do a little too much. It’s hard to pinpoint one thing...

Game #76, Padres 4 @ Diamondbacks 0

I always though Greinke looked like Grumpy Cat. Just a little. I love both of them. Oof. Double Ooof. Another anemic showing from the bats. It’s Wednesday, so you know what that means? It’s a potential sweep day! This sweep would be a good one, an Arizona one! It’s also a short one, the final game of a set of two against San Diego. I can’t say I feel super confident about this one going in though. While the boys in red have won two in a row, the offense hasn’t exactly been consistent in the last week, uh month?, season.... But they have Bumgarner on the...

Caleb Smith came in and tossed three innings of shutout ball to follow up. While Smith held the Friars in check, the Diamondbacks chipped away, scoring two of their four seventh inning runs on back-to-back HBP with the bases loaded, an event that had never occurred (in...
