DBacks need to win at least 2 games of this 4 game set with the notorious Chicago Cubs. Winning 3 of 4 would be great, particularly at Wrigley with 3 of the games being day games. The ERA differential for tonight's starters is fairly stark - advantage Cubs.

I would ask why don't we bring up Kyle Lewis to replace Smith, but Lewis looks sooooo bad at the plate! Deer in the headlights syndrome.

Pavin Smith is back in the lineup at DH. In no way is Pavin Smith a better hitter than Jake McCarthy who is wrecking Reno

Marte with two-run shot!

Should have been three, but Carroll got out the play before trying to stretch a single
