FOX Sports Arizona presents 15.5 hours of D-backs on Christmas day
It wouldn’t be the holiday season without a gift from FOX Sports Arizona to our loyal viewers.
“Our Holiday Season — presented by Sanderson Ford” begins at 9 a.m. Christmas morning and features 15-and-a-half hours of continuous Diamondbacks programming: Two-hour versions of seven of the most memorable games from an unforgettable 2017 season, and a one-hour encore showing of our D-backs Live postgame show following the team’s victory over Colorado in the NL wild-card game.
Here’s our lineup card.
9 to 11 a.m. — April 21, D-backs 13, Dodgers 5: D-backs score nine runs in the eighth innings to defeat the Dodgers.
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. — June 21, D-backs 16, Rockies 5: D-backs score 10 in the fourth inning to clobber the Rockies.
1 to 3 p.m. — July 21, D-backs 6, Nationals 5: D-backs hit back-to-back-to-back home runs off Cy Young winner Max Scherzer in the first inning, then score the winning run on a walk-off, bases-loaded hit by Brandon Drury in the ninth to defeat the Nationals.
3 to 5:30 p.m. — Aug. 3, D-backs 10, Cubs 8: The three-times-delayed marathon victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field, featuring Paul Goldschmidt’s three home runs and six RBI and the epic performance-art demonstration by the D-backs bullpen during one of the rain delays.
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. — Aug. 8, D-backs 6, Dodgers 3: The “This-is-our-house” game, punctuated by Jake Lamb’s foul-pole grand slam and Archie Bradley’s jubilant exhortation to the fans while walking toward the dugout.
7:30 to 9:30 p.m. — Aug. 14, D-backs 2, Astros 0: Zack Greinke strikes out AL MVP Jose Altuve three times (first 3-K game for Altuve since 2014) and combines with three relievers to shut out the eventual world champion Houston Astros.
9:30 to 11:30 p.m. — Sept. 20, D-backs 13, Padres 7: The D-backs and Padres combine for a Petco Park-record nine home runs, but the game’s most-memorable hit is delivered by none other than Archie Bradley, who lined a 104.4 mph single to center field to score two runs, then motored at full speed into third base on a two-base error by San Diego center fielder Manuel Margot.
11:30 p.m. to 12;30 a.m. — Oct. 3, wild-card celebration: The D-backs celebrate after knocking off the Rockies, 11-8, in the NL wild-card game.
