The 2004 Arizona Diamondbacks looked to improve on their 84-78 record from 2003. They looked to contend in what was a weaker National League West than in years past. They finished the season with a record of 51-111, in last place in the division, though Randy Johnson pitched a perfect game on May 18, 2004.
