2009 Diamondback slugger Mark Reynolds establishes a new single-season strikeout mark for the second year in a row when he misses a 1-2 breaking ball from Madison Bumgarner, his 205th K of the campaign. Prior to breaking his own dubious mark and extending it with another whiff in the sixth inning, the 26 year-old third baseman collected his 100th RBI of the season in Arizona's 10-8 Chase Field victory over San Francisco.
2010 The Diamondbacks hire Kevin Towers as the team's general manager, bypassing the interim GM Jerry Dipoto, a highly-regarded administrator within the organization and throughout baseball for the job he did replacing Josh Byrnes. During Towers' 14-year tenure in the same position with the Padres, San Diego won four division titles and played in the 1998 World Series against New York.
