Article Body:
The Arizona Diamondbacks are hot on the heels of the Colorado Rockies these days and several players are
making major contributions. Defense has been a major player, as the Diamondbacks have turned a major
league-leading 39 double plays and were tied with the Padres for the best fielding percentage (.989) in the
National League.

Third baseman Chad Tracy has now homered in three straight games, hitting a solo shot (his sixth of the
season) off Cubs starter Rich Hill in the third inning. The Diamondbacks record for hitting homers in
consecutive games is four, which has been set six times, the last by Troy Glaus in 2005.

RHP Jose Valverde, whose eight saves were tied for third in the National League, had pitched in three
consecutive games and manager Bob Melvin said in advance he had planned to give his closer the night off
Thursday, regardless of the situation.

The Atlanta Braves are not putting the ball in play enough as in evidence by the 173 strikeouts their hitters
have compiled. You know the hitters are struggling when pitcher John Thomson entered May with an ERA
of 1.32 and did not have a single win to show for it.

The Cubs Carlos Zambrano was thought to be a CY Young candidate this year but he has been miserable
and his record sits at 0-2. He has started 7 games and pitched 40 innings which is less then six per game. He
does have 48 strikeouts during this span, but has walked an alarming 28 batters with a skyrocketing WHIP

The Cubs have been swept by Arizona and San Diego on this nine-game road trip, and have lost seven in a
row. Chicago has scored only 12 runs in its last 10 games.
The Mets visit Philadelphia and that means Billy Wagner will return to his former nest. After two seasons
with the Phillies (17-14) in which he totaled 59 saves in 66 opportunities, Wagner bolted via free agency to
the Mets (21-10), whose four-year, $43 million contract contained a no-trade clause throughout the life of
the deal as opposed to Philadelphia's three-year, $30 million offer, which had a no-trade clause for the first
two seasons.

Wagner, who has converted seven saves in 10 opportunities, hopes to get an opportunity to close for staff
ace Pedro Martinez (5-0, 2.72 ERA). Martinez, who has never pitched at Citizens Bank Park, is 7-4 with a
2.85 ERA lifetime against the Phillies, including a 2-1 record while pitching for the Mets.

The right-hander, though, saw his first attempt for a sixth win in 2006 go by the wayside Wednesday, when
Wagner allowed two ninth-inning runs before the Mets rallied for a 4-3, 12-inning victory.

The Phillies are enjoying their longest winning streak since a 13-game run from July 30-Aug. 12, 1991, and
have won eight of their last 10 at home to even their record at Citizens Bank Park to 10-10.
