If the Diamondbacks can win tonight, running their streak to nine, it will be the best managed by the team since they reeled off a dozen consecutive victories in June 2003. It would also set a new franchise record, being our twelfth victory at Chase Field in a row, beating the previous record, most recently set (in part) over that same June 2003 streak. With the Giants having managed to over-power the Cubs by scoring a whole four runs (!), the Diamondbacks will want to keep the pressure on, and take the winning streak into tomorrow's off-day, and then off to San Francisco for the weekend series there.

The A-team out there tonight...save possibly Bloomquist lead-off, which I'm kinda "meh" about. The Rockies are missing both the Tool and Chris Ianetta, so I think we definitely have the edge for this one again. Collmenter was hit fairly hard by the Rockies they first time they saw him, at Coors, but held them to three runs over seven innings here in July, picking up the W. We haven't faced Rogers this season; he has an ERA north of six over his last few outings, allowing 12 runs in 17.2 innings. I think Arizona can take him down, and roll on, to finish the month of August with a 19-10 record, matching the one we had in May.
