4. Offense Getting it Done with the Bases Loaded

So far the Diamondbacks are near the top in baseball in hitting with the bases loaded as a team. So far in 8 plate appearances, the Dbacks have a .500 batting average with the bases juiced scoring 9 runs.

Those numbers are huge because of the way this team wins ball games. The starting staff is going to be hit and miss, so the ability of the offense to take advantage of men on base especially with the bases loaded is going to be the no.1 key to this season. Jake Lamb has a .364 average with the bases juiced and 3 RBI’s.

The Dbacks need to score a lot of runs to win. Now this team needs to improve with RISP.
