Despite an incredible debut from Ryne Nelson in game one, the Arizona Diamondbacks and their relief pitching couldn’t hold off a home run onslaught from the San Diego Padres, losing the series 2-1.


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.
