After several weeks of playing level baseball with their opponents, the Dbacks took a back seat against NL West foes. Arizona lost consecutive series against the likes of Colorado and San Diego. The best news is that with the teams a few games back from .500, they’re primed for a winning streak.

After dropping the opener to Colorado on Tuesday, Arizona produced a comeback performance in the 9th inning of Wednesday’s ballgame. However, the Dbacks dropped the rubber match of the series to the Rockies. This past weekend, the Dbacks dropped their first two games against the Padres before salvaging Sunday afternoon’s contest. Arizona now finds themselves 3 games back of .500 and 6 games back of the NL West Division lead.

It was much more knit-picking this go around, but here are your weekly Studs N’ Duds.
