The Arizona Diamondbacks offense explodes in the final two games of their four-game series with the Dodgers and gives them a 3-1 series victory. Pavin Smith returned to the starting lineup from Reno and immediately made a huge impact at the dish. Meanwhile, the D-backs bullpen continues to be shockingly good.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
