PHOENIX (AP) -- Ryan Roberts hit an inside-the-park home run, Justin Upton ended a long drought with a three-run shot and the Arizona Diamondbacks tied a franchise record with six homers during a wild 14-10 win over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.
Miguel Montero hit a two-run homer, Aaron Hill connected for the third straight game, and Jason Kubel and John McDonald each had a solo shot to match the team record set twice before. Montero had four RBIs.
Upton's first homer since May 23 snapped a 5-all tie in the fifth inning and Roberts had the highlight of a big-hitting day for the Diamondbacks, legging out a shot that caromed off the wall in center in the sixth for the eighth inside-the-park homer in franchise history.

PHOENIX -- In an all-out slugfest with the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, six Diamondbacks hit home runs, tying a franchise record for a single game. No one needed a homer more than embattled right fielder Justin Upton.

PHOENIX -- In baseball, as with anything else, no one ever wants to lose his job. Such was the case with Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter, who was bumped from the rotation to the bullpen after just four starts.
Collmenter took the demotion in stride, though, embracing his new role as a reliever and has thrived since making the switch.

Wade Miley was not a name focused on this preseason, but the Diamondbacks fifth starter has pitched his way onto the roster of many a fantasy team. While many believed it would be hot prospect Trevor Bauer putting up awesome numbers at the back end of Arizona’s rotation, Miley has given the D-Backs a reason to let Bauer continue to develop at Triple-A.
Miley’s stuff looked...

The first three months of the season have not been kind to the Diamondbacks. An extra-innings loss on Tuesday brings the defending National League West champions’ record to 33-35, nine games out of first place. However, Arizona is better than their record suggests. They are one busted slump, one injury return, and one trade away from contending for a playoff spot.
Seattle outlasted Arizona in its last game to even the road set with the Diamondbacks. Facing Trevor Cahill, however, won't make it easy for the Mariners to win a second straight series.
Cahill looks to win a fourth consecutive start and help the Diamondbacks bounce back against the Mariners on Wednesday.

I think we can officially say the Arizona Diamondbacks have "Bieber Fever".Remember last week, when Brad Ziegler tweeted the picture of teammate J.J.

It looks like another lost season in the Pacific Northwest. The Mariners own the second worst record in the American League and even the mighty King Felix Hernandez seems to have caught the underperformance bug this season.

It's been a rough year for the Diamondbacks. They haven't been above .500 since May 4th, when they were 14-13. After last night's win over the Mariners, Arizona is 33-34, and looking to get to that .500 plateau again. They got to one game of .500 last night in style. Second baseman Aaron Hill, acquired from the Blue Jays along with John McDonald for Kelly Johnson...
J.J. Putz's autographed Justin Bieber card -- found by chance in a pack given to him as a joke gift and resulting in a viral internet photo -- will be auctioned off on the Diamondbacks' official website, Putz announced Tuesday, with proceeds to benefit the charities of teammates Craig Breslow and Brad Ziegler.
"Given the way I obtained this card, I think the only responsible...
