Randy Johnson, the Opening Day starter from 1999 to 2004

The Arizona Diamondbacks are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Phoenix, Arizona. They play in the National League West division. The Diamondbacks have used four different Opening Day starting pitchers in their 11 seasons. The four starters have a combined Opening Day record of four wins, five losses (4–5), and three no decisions.[1] No decisions are only awarded to the starting pitcher if the game is won or lost after the starting pitcher has left the game.

Randy Johnson holds the Diamondbacks' record for most Opening Day starts with six, and has an Opening Day record of 3–3. The only other Diamondbacks pitcher to start more than one opening game is Brandon Webb.[1] Andy Benes and Javier Vázquez have started one Opening Day each.[1] Webb has the best winning percentage as the Opening Day starting pitcher with a record of 1–0 (and three no decisions).[1][2] Benes and Vázquez are tied for the worst Opening Day record, both at 0–1.[1] Webb is Arizona's only pitcher with a no decision on Opening Day (Webb has three), and Johnson is the only pitcher to have won two or more opening games.[1]

Overall, the Diamondbacks have a record of 2–4 at Chase Field on Opening Day, compared to a 2–1 record at away games.[1] The Diamondbacks went on to play in the National League Division Series (NLDS) playoff games in 1999, 2001, 2002 and 2007. Randy Johnson was the Opening Day starting pitcher in 1999, 2001, and 2002, and Brandon Webb was the starter in 2007.[3] Webb and Johnson have a combined Opening Day record of 4–3.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
