Are they there yet? D’backs eager to begin road series

Milwaukee never has sounded so good.

After playing 18 of their first 21 games at home, the Arizona Diamondbacks are headed to Wisconsin. They don’t seem to mind.

“I think it’s going to be nice to get to Milwaukee,” said infielder Chad Tracy, possibly the first time an athlete has uttered such a phrase.

Arizona is just the fourth team since 1900 to play 18 home games in April. But the D’backs didn’t take advantage, leaving town with a 9-12 mark.

“Sometimes a change of scenery is good for a team,” manager Bob Melvin said.

The Diamondbacks’ only trip to date was a three-game set in San Francisco, where they scored a measly two runs.

“It seems like we’ve been here forever,” said third baseman Mark Reynolds, thinking back to spring training. “It’s almost like Groundhog Day. Two months in a row.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
