D-backs' Jake Lamb big leaguing his mom?

Watch as D-backs rookie third baseman tells a funny story about the time he got lost driving home from Chase Field and was using the navigation on his smart phone to find his way, when his mom called to congratulate him on hitting his first-career home run in the Majors after the game on Saturday. Lamb declined the call to keep the navigation going, and she promptly accused him of "Big Leaguing" her. Pretty funny stuff.



Gerardo Parra bunts for a double against Mets

Did that dude just bunt for a double? Yes, yes he did. A legit double on your scorecard. Gerardo Parra busted out the super-rare bunt double on Thursday, in a play that pretty much only the Mets could allow.

It not often you see a bunt go for a double and you've got to appreciate the hustle by Parra, who is one of the game's good guys. He would be driven home by the game's next batter, Wil Nieves.

The Mets of course lost the game, 5-4, in 15 innings. This sound effect pretty much sums up the Mets' afternoon at Citi Field on the 4th of July.



D-backs, Mets honor fallen AZ firefighters

The D-backs and Mets paid homage to the 19 elite firefighters who lost their lives on Sunday battling the widfire in Yarnell, Ariz. with a tribute prior to New York's 5-4 win in 13 innings at Citi Field on Monday night.

Both clubs hung No. 19 Yarnell jerseys in their dugouts and the D-backs sported a black bands around the left arms of their jerseys to honor the Granite Mountain Hotshots. A moment of silence was also held to moarn the loss of the couragous men. Classy move by both clubs to come together to honor the fallen heroes.



Cody Ross confuses the count on walk

D-backs right fielder Cody Ross was perplexed for a moment in the top of the 8th inning against the Marlins on Monday night at Chase Field when he wasn't quite sure of the count as he drew a walk.

After figuring out just what the heck was going on, Ross took his base but wound up stranded. Giancarlo Stanton blasted what would be the game-winning homer the next inning as Miami topped Arizona, 3-2. With the loss, the D-backs have now dropped four straight games.



J. Upton gets revenge after B.J. gets plunked 

Check out the video above as Juston Upton exacts revenge in the form of a home run after D-backs pitcher Wade Miley hit his younger brother, B.J. with a pitch during the sixth inning of Atlanta's 10-1 route over Arizona on Monday night at Chase Field.

Justin, who was playing in Arizona for the first time since the D-backs traded him to Atlanta in January, didn't take too long to get revenge, as his two-run homer happened just two pitches after Miley hit B.J.

Justin finished 4-for-5 with two run and two RBIs, while Chris Johnson, who was also shipped to Atlanta in the same trade, also added a two-run homer against his former team. Looks like the D-backs might be regretting that deal for many years to come.
