The Arizona Diamondbacks will welcome one of the hotter teams in baseball when the Washington Nationals stroll into town. The Nationals have won 4 straight games and have won their last 4 series. The Dbacks aren’t slouching either, as they’ve won 4 of their last 6 games and have come in with hot bats.
Arizona is currently 14-16 and in 4th place in the National League West. They are 6 games out of first place, where the Los Angeles Dodgers reign supreme. Washington is 17-15 and have moved all the way up to 2nd place in the National League East, where they are 3.5 games back of the New York Mets. The Nats will feature some heavy hitting bats and here are some of them.
