Despite an impressive showing from Derek’s hair twin Lourdes Gurriel Jr, the D-backs were unable to complete their first three-game sweep of the season vs the Nationals. We take a look at the D-backs bullpen being a disaster in this series, no RISP kings for Arizona, and why they are unable to close out potential series sweeps.


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.
