It was announced early Tuesday morning that longtime D-back and fan favorite Conor Jackson had been traded to the Oakland Athletics for minor league pitcher Sam Demel. Since his arrival in 2005, Conor Jackson has been a mainstay in the lineup for the D-backs from 2006 to 2008. With three seasons of 25 or more doubles, two 15 home run seasons and a respectable .277 lifetime batting average, Conor will certainly be missed by the fans. During the 2009 season, Jackson was overtaken by a mysterious illness, later diagnosed as valley fever as he would miss the majority of the season for Arizona. In an effort to make some changes in the bullpen, the D-backs would trade the outfielder who did show some signs of improvement for the 2010 season. Read more

The D-backs would get started right away in the first inning on an Adam LaRoche double that would score Kelly Johnson and Mark Reynolds. With Jackson on the mound, despite the zeros on the scoreboard, he had pitched himself into a number of tough spots throughout the game. Two times with the bases loaded, Jackson would be able to get out of the innings. In the bottom of the fourth inning, the D-backs would score once again as Chris Young would hit a solo shot to give the team a three to nothing lead over the Cardinals. Read more
