we took the vote to
the fans
.

So, without further ado, we submit to you the top five
moments in the 2011 Diamondbacks regular season as voted on
by you, the fans.

Champagne bottles popped after the Diamondbacks 
clinched their first division title since 2007 
after beating the Giants 3-1. Arizona got to 
celebrate the victory at home in Phoenix on 
September 23. In his fifth start of the season on April 25, 
Ian Kennedy showed his best stuff against the 
Phillies, throwing a complete game shutout 
giving up three hits and striking out 10. 
Kennedy was pitching on short sleep, having 
been in New York for the birth of his first 
child the previous day. Four days after being signed by the 
Diamondbacks in August, first basemen Lyle 
Overbay hit the go-ahead double off of Phillies 
ace Roy Halladay in the 9th inning. The August 
16th victory was one of many impressive 
comeback victories the team had this season. The Diamondbacks celebrated the NL West 
championship by jumping into the pool at Chase 
Field on September 23. The division title is 
the fifth in team history and first since 2007. 
The pool was a refreshing spot for a team that 
has stayed hot in the second half of the 
season. Ryan Roberts rounds third base after hitting a 
grand slam that capped a six-run come from 
behind victory in the 10th inning after the 
Dodgers took a five-run lead on September 27. 
It was the Diamondbacks' 48th comeback victory 
of the season and apparently the most 
memorable.
