It didn’t take long for the Rangers to put an end to Zac Gallen’s scoreless streak as Texas takes game one of the series over the D-backs by a score of 6-4. In bigger news, Arizona Diamondbacks pitching prospect Brandon Pfaadt will make his major league debut in game two of this series while former top prospect Kristian Robinson has been cleared legally to resume baseball activity. Also, Purple Hair Derek has arrived.


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.
