Still purring gently over this one. Enright continues to defy the nay-sayers, and another nail gets hammered into the Rockies' coffin - we'll be watching exactly the same post-season as them in October. There's only one team we've faced more than six times this season and have a winning record against. Here's to completion of the sweep this afternoon and more Purple Woe.

Recaps

  • [SB Nation Arizona] Two Keys To Victory: Enright's Change-up, Working The Count On Jimenez - "I threw some decent one's tonight which keeps them off my fastball and keeps them off my off-speed pitches. It just makes everything kind of better. I haven't been sharp with all my off-speed pitches in my last few outings so throwing the change-up tonight kind of helped that."
  • [dbacks.com] Enright, Upton help D-backs beat Ubaldo - Upton admitted that he wasn't exactly sure what pitch he did jump on. "I have no clue. I just saw a ball coming at me, and I swung at it," he said of what was gauged at 85 mph on the radar gun. "His changeup [compared with his slider] is also at like 88 miles per hour, so heck if I know."
  • [Yahoo!] Upton homers off Jimenez, Arizona beats Rockies - "I’m trying not to think about it," Enright said of his string of solid outings, "but it’s obviously an accomplishment. Trying to keep the team in the ballgame and trying to do my best."
  • [AZCentral] Diamondbacks defeat Rockies- "Enright was visited by a team trainer in the sixth inning, when he was spotted shaking his arm. He said it was nothing more than a sweaty undershirt getting caught up with his heavy black jersey."
