Diamondbacks Hammer Colorado

September 21, 2008 by  

In a timely and convincing victory against the Colorado Rockies, the Arizona Diamondbacks gain a game, in the standings, on the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers fall to the Giants in 11 innings with a score of 1-0.

In an unusual display of offense, the Diamondbacks score 13 runs on 19 hits as they better the Rockies by 9 runs. Great team performances were delivered by Young, Co Jack, Dunn and Haren. Dan Haren helped his game winning cause by having six quality innings and producing three hits with the bat. Connor Jackson had four hits with two runs and Adam Dunn contributed with three RBIs. Chris Young also performed well by providing three hits and driving in four Arizona runs with one home run. Additionally, John Whitesell hits hist first major league home run.

The race continues to narrow as the Diamondbacks square off against the St. Louis Cardinals this week before finishing up the season in Phoenix.
