The Diamondbacks look to keep the good vibes going, get a series win, and most importantly start a winning streak. Its funny how the game of baseball works. The Dbacks didn’t do much right through the first 10 games of the season and as a result started a franchise worst 2-8. Yesterday the Snakes did everything right: they got an early lead, they tacked on, and the bullpen more specifically Josh Collmenter held the lead. Of course everybody would like to see Bronson Arroyo go more than 5 innings, but he did his job, pitching a quality start. Now the Dbacks look to get an important series victory against the Giants and move up in the N.L West standings. Here is what you need to know for tonight’s series finale and the final game of the road-trip:
