SnakeBytes 7/8: Round 2, FIGHT!

After a thorough beating of the Rockies at home where they only allowed 2 runs the entire series, the D-Backs welcome the Dodgers to Chase Field for the first meeting since that fateful night in June. Will we see another fight this series? Or will cooler heads prevail? Whatever happens, make sure you don't miss anything.

He deserved it a long time ago. Obviously he hasn't had run support. That's why it's been tough. ... He should be 15-0, to be honest.

- Miguel Montero

It felt like every inning I got a little bit stronger. Just one first pitch right down the middle for the homer, but other than that I felt good with my changeup and my slider.

- Patrick Corbin

I don't know what that means. It is not over in the season? Is it not over to hit people? I really don't care what he says. I don't even care who he is. He's nobody. I'm not even going to waste time talking about that guy. It is worthless for me. If he hits me, hit me. I'm going to run to first. I'm not going to start a fight. If he hits me, hopefully (Major League Baseball will) do something about it if he does. We're looking forward to playing another series. We have to move on.

Suffice it to say the Diamondbacks do not feel threatened.

D-backs' Miley on a roll since rediscovering form |
"I'm just trying to go after guys, just trying to keep us in ballgames," Miley said, hesistant to give himself much credit. "If we score five, just keep (opponents) to four -- that's my mentality right now. I'm not trying to do too much, just trying to go out and give the team a chance to win."

Ross sets personal best with five-hit game |
Although he didn't realize it at the time, D-backs outfielder Cody Ross did something Saturday night he had never done in his 10-year Major League tenure. By going 5-for-5 at the plate, Ross set a career-high in hits for a single game and matched the franchise record for a 16th time.

And to think, Manny Machado isn't a natural 3rd baseman. Actually it reminds of Brooks Robinson
