Arizona Diamondbacks Wrap Up Road Trip with 4-2 Win Over St. Louis Cardinals
The Arizona Diamondbacks' 3-3 record on its recently completed road trip is a smashing success, considering the team's generally poor play this year and the competition (two likely playoff teams, the Tampa Bay Rays and the St. Louis Cardinals). The D-Backs ended the trip Thursday afternoon in St. Louis with a nice 4-2 win, on the strength of rookie starting pitcher Barry Enright's solid major-league debut and Chris Young's 15th homer of the year.
Young's 15th homer, a two-run shot, came in the top of fifth inning and gave the D-Backs at 3-1 lead. The resurgent Young now has a team-leading 52 runs batted in on the season and is looking like he may be the team's lone representative on the National League All-Star team.
