After going 7-3 on a ten-game road trip, the Diamondbacks have suddenly flipped the script, and are suddenly over .500.

If the Diamondbacks are going to be in contention for a division title this season, they have to translate what they did on the road to the second homestand of the year, and defend home turf.

The Snakes didn’t fare well against Clint Hurdle’s ball club last season going 1-5 in six games.
