PHOENIX -- You only get one chance to make a first impression, and D-backs outfielder Mark Trumbo did not want to waste his.
Trumbo, who was acquired from the Angels in a December trade, played in his first home game on Monday and went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBIs.
"It's always nice when you have some success, especially this being the first home game with a new team," Trumbo said.
Even before the in-game success, the sellout crowd gave Trumbo a nice ovation when the starting lineups were announced.
"The reception I got from the fans was great to hear," Trumbo said. "The energy that was in the stadium last night was awesome. I think we definitely fed off that. Unfortunately, in the end, we didn't get it done from our end, but I think everyone that came brought it."
