As I noted on Twitter yesterday, the 33 runs scored this series ties a mark set earlier this season for any three-game run, and hasn't been surpassed by the Diamondbacks since they put up 34 in August 2009. If you're looking at a four-game streak, the all-time mark is 44, from June 6-9, 2000. We haven't reached 40 since September 2002, and the seven runs needed seem eminently within reach, given the venue and the state of the opponent's pitching staff. Heck it'd be almost average: the Rockies have now allowed closer to six runs per game than five (5.59): in the NL, not even the Astros are at five, and Colorado are over 30% above league average of 4.29.

I'll be 'capping this one, and hope to see us climb further above .500 as a result.

Sheesh. Wil Nieves and Aaron Hill, between them, had seven hits and four RBI yesterday - and neither are in the line-up. Actually, both are kinda understandable: Hill was scratched due to illness, and Montero went after Nieves's knees with a tire-iron in the parking-lot. One of these things may not be entirely accurate.
