The Dbacks are coming off a successful week. They defeated the Atlanta Braves in two of three games and had four game series split against the New York Mets. Arizona was led by an All Star hopeful, a couple of youngsters reaching their potential, and a pair of rookies continuing their exceptional first act.
The 4th place Diamondbacks are currently 27-29 and are 4.5 games back of the National League West Division leading Los Angeles Dodgers. Arizona will have a golden opportunity to make up some ground. They’ll face both the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants in three game series. Before we look forward to next week, let’s celebrate the outstanding performances of this week.
