I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day holiday today. One team that has to be thanking their lucky stars right now is the Arizona Diamondbacks. With a little luck and what appears to be a lot of potential talent finally coming to fruition, the Dbacks have won 12 of 13 and are on their second 6-game winning streak in the last two weeks. They go for 7 today against the Florida Marlins at 5:10pm at Chase Field.
The Dbacks bring home their timely hitting, their timely pitching, and some true grit and effort. This is a team that does not quit. When the cards were down this weekend a couple of times in Houston and it seemed the Dbacks were down and out, they came back victorious.
Stephen Drew, Juan Miranda, Ryan Roberts, Xavier Nady, Gerardo Parra, Justin Upton, Chris Young, Miguel Montero, Zach Duke, David Hernandez, oh I could keep going...they all contributed to a sweep this weekend. It just goes to show you these guys are playing like a team right now. Of course, Florida is no roll over and they are better than Houston. The Dbacks are going to have to stay sharp if they want to continue their winning ways.
So while you are eating your potato salad at home or firing up the grill, sit back and enjoy. It could be another wild ride in downtown Phoenix tonight. It's can't miss baseball folks!
