Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies, last game of the series. So far the series is defined tonight. Each team has a victory. Last night the Diamondbacks were able to win at home and hope to do the same tonight to close the series. The Phillies gave the first blow during the first game of the series. But tonight everything will be different, especially with the D-backs looking for a positive record at home.
Arizona Diamondbacks: We want to be positive at home.
The Diamondbacks last night won 8-4 the second game of the series. That was possible after losing the first game of the series against Phillies 3-7. Before this series the D-backs had won two series at home, one against the Nationals 2-1 and one against the Orioles 2-1. Mike Leake was a key piece last night to win against the Phillies.
