 Rally time

The Diamondbacks have done a lot of rallying in the early going and in the process, giving fans tacos.

Arizona’s .322 average is the best in baseball, but they get even better after two outs are recorded. With no outs, Diamondbacks’ hitters are batting .282. Their average goes up to .319 with one out and .365 with two outs.

Arizona has recorded 27 hits and 19 runs with two outs. Recording clutch hits with two down has also come easy. The Snakes have a major league-best .400 average with RISP and two outs with 12 hits and 14 RBI.

Brandon Drury is 4-for-7 (.571) with two outs to start 2017 and leads the team with a .526 average and 10 hits.

Last night in the sixth, Tomas, Drury, and Jeff Mathis went double, triple and single with two outs and scored four runs. Two out hitting creates big innings, puts less pressure on the pitchers and helps a team win more.

The team hopes this trend continues
