The Arizona Diamondbacks offense showed up – much like we all did – to see Brandon Pfaadt’s debut in Arlington. Unfortunately, a difficult fifth inning from a potent Texas offense rained on Pfaadt’s debut and ended his outing early. However, the Answerbacks showed up and out dueled the Rangers to split the two-game series. We take a look at the numbers and what lies ahead for the D-backs’ upcoming home stand.


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.
