Arizona Diamondbacks can’t stop, won’t stop winning! What does the score look like after you have made an opposing team your bitch? Try 15 - 4. And this win came against the Florida Marlins, a team with a winning record. What is the difference this season? Our starting pitching has been solid, and closer J.J. Putz is killing it. The bats have really come alive during this win streak. Kelly Johnson had 2 homers and 4 extra-base hits in the game alone.
So much for those who said this team could only beat bad opponents. Tonight, they destroyed the Florida Marlins, who came into the game with the second-best winning percentage in the National League. Not just beat, but hammered. The Arizona Diamondbacks pounded out 19 hits; Justin Upton had a five-hit night, Miguel Montero drove in five runs and Kelly Johnson cemented his return to form by going deep twice. Joe Saunders escaped early danger and was good enough to ensure our stay at the top was not a one-day wonder.
