  • Buchholz goes distance, backed by 5-run 1st
    The D-backs used a big first inning from their offense and another outstanding performance by Clay Buchholz to beat the Padres, 5-1, on Thursday night at Petco Park. Jon Jay doubled to open the game, A.J. Pollock walked and David Peralta followed with a three-run homer to center, while Alex Avila added a two-run single later in the frame. Starter Clay Buchholz continued his impressive season by delivering a complete game with just one run allowed.
  • This D-back is an NL West game-changer

  • Corbin stingy, D-backs maintain NL West lead
    Patrick Corbin pitched seven innings of three-run ball and struck out seven, and Paul Goldschmidt and Alex Avila homered to help the D-backs split the series against the Rangers with a win on Tuesday night at Globe Life Park. Corbin did not issue a walk in the outing for his third consecutive start. Jurickson Profar had a double, a triple and a pair of RBIs to lead Texas.

  • Goldy proving too valuable a workhorse to rest
    Like Kirk Gibson and Chip Hale, the men who sat in his chair before him, D-backs manager Torey Lovullo meant well when he said in Spring Training that he planned on getting first baseman Paul Goldschmidt more days off in 2018. But, like Gibson and Hale, Lovullo has found that putting those words into practice is extremely difficult.
  • Best August trade in D-Backs' history
    While the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline rightfully garners the lion's share of attention when it comes to each year's trade season, there have been numerous deals struck during the month of August that have been impactful down the stretch and in subsequent years. Here's a look at the best August trade each team has ever made.
  • D-backs break ground on new academy in DR
    The greatest catcher in D-backs history, Miguel Montero, kicked away some leaves to reveal a square slab of cement at the uninhabited Las Americas academy where he first played as a professional. It was there that a pay phone once stood, and Montero recalled dialing home daily to Venezuela -- via collect call -- as a homesick teenager thinking about calling it quits.
  • D-backs stumble again vs. struggling Rangers
    The D-backs hoped their win over the Reds on Sunday would start them off on a winning streak during this crucial nine-game road trip against three last-place teams. However, the search continues as Arizona fell to the Rangers, 5-3, on Monday night at Globe Life Park.

  • D-backs' headwear a nod to bench coach
    For several of their road trips this year, the D-backs have gone with different dress-up themes. There was a "Miami Vice" trip to play the Marlins, and a "Saturday Night Live" theme on the road to play the Mets. Arizona bench coach Jerry Narron wasn't sure what to make of the outfits he saw worn by the team on Sunday night's flight from Cincinnati to Dallas.
  • Goldy's 2 HRs help D-backs reclaim first place
    The D-backs belted five home runs -- including two from Paul Goldschmidt -- in a win over the Reds at Great American Ball Park on Sunday to avoid a sweep. Daniel Descalso started the power show off with a three-run homer in the first to back 6 2/3 innings from Zack Godley. Reds starter Luis Castillo retired 13 in a row at one point, but Cincinnati couldn't keep up with Arizona's attack in the finale.

  • Offense shows life, bullpen falters vs. Reds
    A back-and-forth game tilted in Arizona's favor after David Peralta's solo home run in the eighth inning provided a 3-2 lead. But reliever Archie Bradley -- who escaped a jam in the seventh inning -- quickly found trouble again in the eighth. Bradley hit Eugenio Suarez with a pitch and issued a walk before Tucker Barnhart laced a two-out, two-run double into the left-center-field gap to give the Reds a 4-3 lead.
