Inching closer to the .500 mark, the Arizona Diamondbacks captured a series victory over the Brewers on Saturday, and have been very competitive lately.

Jeremy Hellickson did what he needed to do, and had a solid performance on the mound with a quality start. Hellickson gave up just two runs and went six innings and that was all that would be needed as the bats of the Diamondbacks continued to stay hot.

Last night Paul Goldschmidt powered the offense with his three doubles and today he followed that performance up with two monster blasts of his own, including one that went high up the big screen in center field. He is now hitting .345 on the year with 14 home runs and 42 rbis.

Mark Trumbo also added three hits of his own as the middle of the order continues to produce. Randall Delgado would finish the game off with three innings of relief and pick up the save.

The Good: Paul Goldschmidt is on a tear. He’s on pace for a 40+ home run season and several rbis to go with it. There’s no doubt he will be representing the team at the All-Star Game. If he can get the team in the wild card discussion, their might be some MVP whispers again.

If you want to nitpick, their might be some stuff in this game, but overall, there was nothing bad or ugly in this blowout. The team now has a chance to get home and take care of their turf in front of their fans.
