In a series headlined by the debut of rookie outfielder Corbin Carroll, Jake McCarthy and the Arizona Diamondbacks explode for 15 runs in the first two games of the series, but forget how to play baseball in the third, losing in a rout to Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies to close out an odd series win.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
