"TC came up big right there with the two-run home run, and it seemed
like that swung the momentum our way and we just kept on swinging from
– Diamondbacks third baseman Mark Reynolds.
Tony Clark, the man who coined the phrase "Anybody Anytime," was the Anybody-in-Chief tonight, batting in 4 runs, including two on a homer, as the Diamondbacks BEAT L.A.! (Stick a fork in them; they’re done). Mark "The Sheriff" Reynold knocked in 3, with 2 of the RBI coming on a homer, and Chris Young also hit a 2-run homer.
Livan Hernandez got off to a shaky start, giving up a run in each of the first three innings, but TC tied it with his homer in the bottom of the third and Livo slammed the door on the Dodgers over the next three innings. He also helped his own cause at the plate by hitting an opposite field single to score Augie Ojeda, who had tripled ahead of Livo with two out. He’s now 11-10.
Eric Byrnes has a strange day at the plate: a sacrifice bunt(!) first time up. A popout, a swinging bunt for a single and then he was hit by a pitch. It caught him near the elbow and we heard him yell, so it had to have hurt real bad.

The big news was that he scored both times he got on base.
ERIC BYRNES HAS NOW SCORED 100 RUNS!!!!
If anyone reading this actually talks to Eric, please give him the message below:
Mark Grace has an answer for you!
Your hitting looked awful but that’s where Gracie comes in. He told us that you were dipping your back shoulder; we got the side views of you so we could see what he meant. It’s the cause of the early uppercuts in your swing that cause all the pop ups and foul balls.
Talk to Gracie, ASAP!
The Dodgers will get tangled in the Webb tomorrow. <heh-heh-heh>
The Rockies beat the Padres in 14. The D’Backs magic number for a playoff berth is now 6, to win the division outright, it’s 8.
