Diamondbacks Notes

Arizona Diamondbacks bats come alive in win over Chicago Cubs

It looked like more of the same from the Diamondbacks. The Snakes made Travis Wood look like vintage Kerry Wood for the first 5 frames, with Martin Prado's solo homerun accounting for the only offense. Then something miraculous happened, the Diamondbacks began to hit. And hit they did, adding 11 hits in three innings. Unsurprisingly, Patrick Corbin turned in another solid start for the Snakes, improving to 12-1 on the year with a 2.31 ERA.
