Diamondbacks Game Preview #37: 5/17 @ Dodgers

We hit the first bump caused by the lockout today, with a pre-scheduled double-header at Dodger Stadium, needed to cram 162 games into a shortened season. According to Eric at True Blue LA, it has been approaching 23 years since the last double-header of any kind in this park, in part because the weather in Southern California is rarely a problem. He says last night’s contest was the Dodgers’ 1,746th consecutive home game without a rainout, a major league record. I can only presume that mark excludes parks with roofs, because the Diamondbacks have played 1,914 games at Chase Field, and I don’t recall any of them being rained out.
