Dan Haren Pitches a Complete Game in Win Over Houston Astros; Tonight: Milwaukee Brewers at Chase Field
Dan Haren: First complete game of the season.
The Arizona Diamondbacks come home tonight to face the Milwaukee Brewers feeling pretty good about themselves. Why? They just wrapped up the season's longest road trip, an 11-gamer, with an acceptable 6-5 record. The D-Backs punctuated it Thursday night in Houston with a complete-game 6-3 win from ace Dan Haren.
Meanwhile, on the offensive side, there appears to be no slowing down Kelly Johnson, who led off the game with his 10th homer, good for the league lead in that category. Utility infielder Tony Abreu, who started at shortstop in place of the resting Stephen Drew, made the most of his opportunity by going 4-for-5 with a run scored and a run batted in.
