The best single-game performances in Arizona pro sports history
12. DJ runs over the Eagles: Just about every David Johnson game to date could be a candidate for this list, but we'll go with this one. The then-rookie Cardinals running back racked up 229 total yards -- 187 rushing, 42 receiving -- and three touchdowns to lead the Cards to a rout in Philly late in the 2015 season. Johnson's rushing total is the fifth-highest single-game mark in team history. (Getty Images)Photo by: Rich Schultz

11. Erubiel's beauty: Erubiel Durazo still owns arguably the best single-game hitting performance in Arizona Diamondbacks history. In a game against the visiting Phillies in 2002, the former first baseman belted four hits -- three home runs and a double -- and batted in nine runs, which remains a team record. The D-backs won the game 12-9. (Getty Images)Photo by: Tom Hauck

10. Taurasi takes the record: Diana Taurasi led the Phoenix Mercury past the Houston Comets in a triple-overtime thriller in 2006 with her 47 points that set a new WNBA record at the time. Even more impressive: Taurasi set the record despite fouling out of the game during the second overtime. (Getty Images)Photo by: Andy Lyons

9. Tony torches the Kings: Tony Delk is one of two former Kentucky guards on this list thanks to his 53-point effort at the Sacramento Kings in 2001. Delk averaged no more than 12.3 points per game in any of his 10 NBA seasons, but he connected on 20 of 27 shots from the field and 13 of 15 shots from the free-throw line in this one. Like the other Kentucky guard on this list, his team lost despite his enormous individual effort. (Getty Images)Photo by: Matthew Stockman

8. Smitty saves everything: It came in a losing effort, but the 58 saves by Mike Smith against the Blue Jackets in 2016 set a new franchise record. Smith saved 58 of 60 shots for the game -- including 22 of 23 in the third period alone -- though the Coyotes went on to lose to Columbus 3-2 in a shootout. (Getty Images)Photo by: Christian Petersen

7. Fitz goes for three: It's almost unfair to single out just one Larry Fitzgerald performance, but the Cardinals' future Hall of Fame receiver had arguably the most important game of his career in January 2009 during the Cards' NFC Championship Game showdown against the visiting Eagles. Fitz scored three first-half touchdowns and caught nine passes for 152 yards for the game to help lead Arizona to its first and only Super Bowl appearance. (Getty Images)Photo by: Jed Jacobsohn

6. Owings owns the Braves: Micah Owings was Mr. Everything in the Diamondbacks' win over the Braves in 2007. The pitcher gave up just three hits and struck out seven batters in seven innings en route to earning the victory, but it was Owings' performance at the plate -- four hits, two home runs, six RBI -- that turned heads across Major League Baseball.

4. 20 Ks: Only four other pitchers in MLB history have recorded 20 strikeouts in nine innings as Randy Johnson did against the Reds in 2001. Johnson didn't get the win, as the game went to extra innings, but he threw 92 strikes in nine innings of work. Fun fact: One of Johnson's strikeout victims was Deion Sanders, who came to the plate as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. The D-backs went on to win the game 4-3 in 11 innings.

3. History Book: Exactly 27 years after Tom Chambers' 60-point performance, 20-year-old guard Devin Booker shattered that team record by scoring 70 points in Boston, albeit in a losing effort to the Celtics. Booker became the sixth player in NBA history and the youngest in league history to score 70 in a game. He also set a team record by scoring 51 points in the second half, earning him a standing ovation from Celtics fans as he exited the court. (Getty Images)Photo by: Brian Babineau
