Brandon Pfaadt had his first great outing of the year and Zac Gallen did what Zac Gallen does, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 3-1 series victory of the San Francisco Giants. We dive into the numbers to see what is and isn’t sustainable for the D-backs. We are also ready to name Dominic Fletcher as the greatest Italian baseball player to ever live.


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.
