I've watched nearly every D-Backs game this season.  Last night, the game vs the Los Angeles Dodgers went into extra innings.  In the 10th, Micah Owings came on to pitch for the D-Backs.  He gives up 5 runs in the 10th.

Funny thing said during the broadcast by Daron Sutton (D-Backs TV Announcer).  He said in the top of the 10th - "If you are watching the Replay, make sure you watch the bottom of the 10th inning"!  Boy was he right!
With 2 outs and no one on in the botom of the 10th, I thought about switching over to watch the last part of the 10PM news.  But I thought you never know.  All of a sudden the bases are loaded.  2B Aaron Hill walked to make the score 6 - 3.  Ryan Roberts, who was 0 -4 in the game, steps up & hits the game winning Grand Slam! 

As he rounded the bases, he did his 'tribute' to Manager Kirk Gibson by imitating Gibson's arm pump from the 1988 World Series.

The D-Backs now have 48 come from behind victories (top in MLB)!.   If the D-Backs win tonight & the Brewers lose, the D-Backs open at home on Saturday night in the Playoffs.
The Arizona Diamondbacks might just be the team of destiny in 2011!  They never give up, no matter how far behind they are.  10 years after the World Series Champions, this team has an opportunity to bring home Arizona's 2nd Title!
