Between a heated series with the Giants during the week and some close inter-league games against the White Sox this weekend, there was plenty of great baseball to cover this homestand at Chase Field.
We’ve been neck and neck with San Francisco all season long, vying for the top spot in the NL west. Every game against the Giants has been hard-fought and this three-game set felt like a playoff series, full of drama. Even though we came up short, losing two of three, Justin Upton’s exciting first career walk-off homer gave D-backs fans some hope and showed the Giants that we weren’t going to make it easy for them to repeat as World Series champions.
As for the White Sox series, Friday night’s game was one to remember and one of the best all-around games that I can recall this season. The stage was set for Daniel Hudson to take on the team that traded him away, and he’d even get the chance to show them their mistake against the guy that he was traded for, Edwin Jackson. Hudson ended up throwing a spectacular game and hurled his first career complete game.
Another plus for us was the television cameras being moved back so they weren’t hanging over the wall in the photo well. By doing this, it freed up a spot in between the cameras and the D-backs dugout. This allowed us to get some great candid shots, as well as some action from an angle that we normally don’t see.
Here are a few of our favorite images of the week.
