Hope I Don't Jinx This... 

The D-Backs are getting off to an excellent start in their first game against the Cubs -- 6-0 through 5 innings. Finley and Tracy continue their hot hitting, though Gonzo and Bautista are not having good games.

But you have to enjoy a game in which the opposing team ends their half of the inning thus:

"Todd Walker grounds out softly to first baseman Shea Hillenbrand."

I'm just incredibly amused by the adverb "softly" in the official scoring recap from MLB.com's Gameday.
