For all those Phoenix residents who love the combination of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Papa John’s pizza, tonight may be your lucky night.

What’s odd with this promotion is the fact that the D’Backs are on the road. Most organizations traditionally offer these types of deals to fans when the team is at home. The other thing I find rather interesting is the timing. Arizona faces the tough task of going up against Dodgers ace, Clayton Kershaw. This season, the Dodgers ace is ranked second in the National League with 183 strikeouts, and has posted a 2.84 ERA, 2.89 FIP and 3.21 xFIP with a 4.7fWAR.
Oh by the way, tonight is also Vin Scully bobblehead night.
