Arizona vs. St.
Louis, Sunday April 8, 2001
St. Louis 9 - Arizona 4, Win Rick Ankiel(1-0), Loss Randy Johnson(1-1), Save Mike Timlin(1)
This one game came at the beginning of a week long trip to Arizona that my wife and I enjoyed shortly after moving into our townhouse. Shortly meaning, about 4 or 5 days. This was also the day after my birthday. We flew out on my birthday then enjoyed a full week. We had a great time, arizona was great. It was also a blast watching Randy Johnson get very mad as he messed this game up early. I was unhappy that Big Mac was still out with injury. It is interesting looking back at this now, Timlin was of course on the Red Sox world series winning team a few years later, and Rick Ankiel is, well who knows. This was not far from the end of the line for him. Another note, this was the year that the Diamondback won the series themselves. This was also the day of the big final at the Masters between Tiger and David Duval. I kept checking on my phone what was going on, the guy next to me wouldn't let me tell him what was going on. He'd recorded the match and was going to watch after the game. This was just Miranda and Myself.
