Clayton Richard didn't quite finish off the D-Backs or his lunch.

Pads are on a roll.

  • Clayton Richard came within one out of throwing a complete game.
  • Alexi Amarista hit his 4th home run in 5 games and was a triple short of a cycle.
  • After hovering around the Mendoza Line most of the season Cameron Maybin may have turned the corner tonight. After a double in his first at bat he absolutely crushed a home run to centerfield. The secret to his success was altering his swing by just doing a toe tap with his front foot. It seemed to work. ESPN says it went 485 feet, the longest of the year.
  • Yasmani Grandal had another home run tonight after 2 on Saturday.
  • Here we sit at the halfway mark:

    31 - 50

    14.5
