Kennedy Wins 13th; D-BACKS within 1 game of the 1st place Giants!

D-Backs Ace IAN KENNEDY won his NL leading 13th game last night vs the Giants!

Kennedy piched his 3rd gem against San Francisco this season, bringing the D-Backs within 1 game of the NL West lead.

NL MVP candidate JUSTIN UPTON continued his 11 game hitting streak;  Upton leads the Major Leagues in Extra Base Hits with 51!

Rookie 1B PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT made his Major League debut going 1 for 4.  This kid looks like the real thing.  Got a single in his first AB vs Matt Cain, one of the toughest right handers in the NL!

Closer JJ PUTZ gained his 23rd Save in the victory.  D-Backs go for 1st place tonight with Daniel Hudson taking the mound.
