Dbacks Return Home to Face Padres

By Scott Allen

You used to be able to say there is no place like home.  Lately, for the Arizona Diamondbacks, there is no place like the road.  The Dbacks, fresh off a 6-3 road trip, return home to face the San Diego Padres at 12:40 today at Chase Field.

This is the time to seize the opportunity to start making a move up the standings chart.  With the Padres riding a nine game winning streak and the Dodgers still comfortably resting in first place, it will be nothing short of a large uphill climb, however there is still time to reverse the damage done over the first seven weeks of the season.

Let’s hope the hot bats continue in a place where the only thing hot are the hot dogs and hamburgers.
