The Arizona Diamondbacks are down, but they're not out.

Trailing the Milwaukee Brewers two games to none in the National League Division Series, the Snakes thumped the Brewers 8-1 last night, with an exclamation point in the form of a Paul Goldschmidt grand slam in the fifth inning (the rookie first baseman had five runs batted in).

More on the game here.

Morale among fans was low following the first two losses -- as redundantly documented in local media reports -- and there's a reason: All 19 teams that have taken a 2-0 lead in the National League Division Series have gone on to win the series.

Statistically, things don't look good for the D-Backs -- but they still looked friggin' good on the field last night.

Having to win the next two games -- one of which will be on the road -- to advance to the National League Championship Series, we want to know what you think: will the D-Backs escape the NLDS with a pair of wins?
