"One-hundred percent? It's tough to say," he said. "I'm not running as well as I was before but I don't feel any pain and I don't feel anything.

-Cody Ross on returning to the Dbacks
Aaron Hill drove in two runs in the 12th inning to lead the Diamondbacks to a road victory at Dodger Stadium. TrevorCahill earned his first career save to end a six-game losing streak.
Aaron Hill's two-run single in the 12th inning led the D-backs to a 4-2 win over the Dodgers on Friday night. The win snapped Arizona's six-game losing streak, and it was the D-backs' first win against the Dodgers this year, after dropping the first five they played.
The primary cause of the D-backs' rough start the season can be traced to the starting rotation. The starters entered Friday's action last in the Majors with a 7.63 ERA, more than two runs higher than the 29th-ranked Twins. The D-backs activated outfielder Cody Ross from the disabled list Friday.
Outfielder Cody Ross admits he probably doesn't feel the same physically as he did before injuring his hip in August, but he believes he's ready to come off the disabled list and contribute.
The D-backs understand their plight: With the worst record in the major leagues at 4-14, there is little time to waste or margin for error. The climb is steeper than the 1.2-mile hike through Echo Canyon.
