"He's been battling," Gibson said. "We're going to get him going, he's going to get it going. You start to analyze things, you pretty much cover it A to Z and it gets tough. You have to go up there and not be over-thinking the situation. If you do, it makes it tough, you analyze things you don't need to analyze."
• You knew first-base umpire Brian O'Nora must have missed the call in the seventh inning Saturday night -- when he ruled Marcell Ozuna had gotten his hand back to first ahead of Montero's pickoff throw -- just by the reaction of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.
Replays showed Ozuna was indeed out, and the fact that Goldschmidt said just a few words to O'Nora spoke volumes. Goldschmidt said he could not remember talking to an umpire about a call before that. It also was a clear sign to those sitting in the Arizona dugout.
"I know he had him," Gibson said. "When you see Goldy talking to the umpire, it's a pretty good indication. When I saw Goldy talking to him I had a pretty good idea that Goldy had some basis for that. He said what he had to say and walked away."
• According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time a leadoff homer was hit on the game's first pitch, and it ended up being the only run in a 1-0 visiting team win, was Sept. 14, 1993, when the Pirates beat the Marlins.
That game, however, was shortened after six innings due to rain. The last nine-inning game to be decided that way was Sept. 2, 1963, when the Reds' Pete Rose homered off Mets starter Jay Hook.
