Something went very wrong late in the Arizona Diamondbacks extra innings loss to the Oakland As in game two of their three-game series. We take a look at the impact home plate umpire Brock Ballou played in both games of this series and how Evan Longoria’s terrible night paved the way to a tough loss in 12 innings.


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.
