Sure, the Diamondbacks lost both games to the Dodgers during the season-opening series in Australia, but Arizona center fielder A.J. Pollock still had a productive time in Sydney.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com writes that Pollock proposed to his girlfriend, who’s from Australia, “while at the Bondi Beach cliff walk.”

Gilbert notes that they met back in college at Notre Dame, where Pollock was on the baseball team and she was on the lacrosse team. Everyone say it with me now: Aww.

On a related note: After a decade as a reluctant BlackBerry user I finally got an iPhone this week. I joined Tinder, because whatever, and probably my No. 1 complaint about it so far is the lack of Australian lacrosse players to choose from.

    Funny that right above this article is a picture of a Philly player proposing to the Cubs catcher at home plate.

    Okay, I’m on pins and needles. I presume she said “yes.” And I’m too lazy to hit the link. Someone please tell us!

    I sure hope no one is going to make some juvenile quip about one or the other of them liking it “Down Under”. I know I would certainly never stoop so low.

      I was thinking of making an “out back” joke, but decided against it
