2004 Ten minutes before the trading deadline, Steve Finley gives the Diamondbacks permission to deal him to the Dodgers. The trade sends the four-time Gold Glove center fielder and backstop Brent Mayne to LA for minor league catching prospect Koyie Hill, flycatcher Reggie Abercrombie, and southpaw Bill Murphy, acquired in yesterday's trade with the Marlins.
2006 With the wind blowing out at Wrigley Field, Orlando Hudson hits a home run from both sides of home plate. Batting left-handed, the Diamondbacks' second baseman goes deep off Mark Prior in the third inning for his first career grand slam, then hitting right-handed nails a Glendon Rusch pitch for a two-run homer in the seventh contributing to Arizona's 15-4 victory over the Cubs.
2013 The Rangers complete a three-game sweep of the Angels when Adrian Beltre leads off the ninth inning with a home run, giving the team a 2-1 walk-off victory. Texas won each of the Arlington contests of the series with a game-ending round-tripper, marking the first time the feat has been accomplished since 1999 when the Diamondbacks swept the Expos at the Bank One Ballpark.
2019 At the trading deadline, the Diamondbacks send Zack Greinke and cash to the Houston Astros for minor leaguers Seth Beer, J.B. Bukauskas, Joshua Rojas, and Corbin Martin, a rookie right-handed starter. The 2009 Cy Young Award winner, who will post an 8-1 mark for the eventual AL champs, joins the top of a very talented rotation with Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole, the winner and runner up for this season's prestigious pitcher award in the American League.
