"I hate playing there!"

Who can blame you, J-Up... Ian Kennedy picked up his 19th win of the year, and also got passed the 200 innings mark - with three starts likely left, twenty wins seems all but certain. It also pushed Arizona another step closer to clinching the NL West, even if the crowd tonight was a disappointing 21,400. Sure there'll be more this weekend. Here are Kirk Gibson, Kennedy, Paul Goldschmidt, Ryan Roberts and the not-well Justin Upton to tell you about it.
