Gonzo got the mojo goin’ after a unwanted day off

Before too much is made of this, Luis Gonzalez is trying to put the whole thing to rest. The best way he can.

Yes, yes, he groused a little about not playing in Thursday’s game. Let’s not make a scandal of it. Gonzo, one of the D-backs more popular players in recent years (does anyone remember the 2001 World Series? I do.) came back on Friday for three hits including his 526th double. That ties him with Dave Parker (the Cobra!) for 30th all-time.

The Diamondbacks won 6-2 over the Rockies.

Popular as he is in Arizona, Luis may not be there for very long, though. The Rangers have their eyes on him.

Speaking of the D-backs, Orlando Hudson who started out poor this year, has really turned it on. On May 24, he was battting a paltry .218. The next day, he went 4 for 4 and since then has batted .309 with a +.500 slugging percentage.
