Welcome to First Place, Snakes

Justin Upton.

Kirk Gibson's team has done it again, beating the Giants 6-1 last night, tying them for first place in the NL West, and putting themselves in position for a sweep. The D'backs have won 12 of 17 to make up 4 1/2 games on the Giants, and while it's hard to root for a team other than the Dodgers to win the division, it's easy to root against the Giants. Good job, Snakes.
