• It has been nearly two months since the D-backs faced the Rockies, and Colorado has changed its roster quite a bit since.

"We don't have a ton of experience with a lot of these guys," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "So we come in and prepare as best we can and try to get an idea, but we'll have to make changes on the fly."

• Eaton watched Reno win the Triple-A Championship this week with a great deal of pride. Eaton hit .381 for the Aces before getting called up to the big leagues.

"A little part of me," Eaton said when asked if he wished he were there for it. "I mean, you were in the trenches with those guys for 120 games. To see them do it made me extremely proud, because they fought their butts off all year. I wouldn't trade anything for being in the big leagues though."

• In addition to Eaton, Skaggs and Corbin figure to get championship rings from Reno and Double-A Mobile, as they all spent time with both those clubs.

Mobile and Reno joined Rookie Missoula in winning championships with Rookie Yakima and the club's entry in the Dominican Summer League also making the playoffs.

"I think it really says a lot about where this organization is," Corbin said.
