A closer look: D-backs snap skid, back to .500

Sure, you could read the box score and know who won, but
we
all
know that won’t tell you everything that happened in a
baseball
game. So, we will give you a closer look, providing you
with
the
analysis, quotes and notes from the D-backs’ July 27
win against the Mets.
Final
score: Diamondbacks 11, Mets 5.

The Good:

The Diamondbacks snap a two-game losing streak with a win over the
Mets. Arizona scored 11 runs on the night and they are now 9-2 in their
last 11 home games and are 22-9 at Chase Field since May 23.
The D-backs have also scored six runs or more in an inning four times this
season.

The Bad:

The New York Mets are 2-12 since the All-Star break.

He Said It:

Chris Young when asked what this team is right now 100 games into the
season.

“I know we’re contenders. It’s no question about it. By no means when we
win a game is it a fluke or anything,” Young said. “We have a great team.
We’ve gone through some ups and downs but when it comes down to it we
are still a good team that can compete with anybody out there. If we can
continue to do what we’re capable of doing, we can put ourselves in a lot
better position.”

Noted:

A few additional bright spots for the Diamondbacks pitching and offense
Friday night. Starter Josh Collmenter is 3-0 with a 2.18 ERA in his last 16
games, five of which were starts. The D-backs pitchers did not allow a
single hit to the final 21 batters they faced.

As for the offense, center fielder Chris Young continues to heat up. He is
10-for-29 (.345) with nine RBIs in his last nine games.

Up Next:
