The Arizona Diamondbacks hope they're on the verge of turning things around at home.
Coming off one of their most productive games of the year, the Diamondbacks have a chance to win consecutive home series for the first time this season Wednesday night against the Colorado Rockies.
One night after being held to six hits in a 4-0 series-opening loss to Colorado, Arizona (26-30) pounded out a season-high 17 hits Tuesday en route to a 10-0 victory. Gerardo Parra had four hits including a homer while Jason Kubel drove in five runs.
Arizona's 51-30 home record last season was a big reason it won the NL West. The Diamondbacks are 11-16 at Chase Field in 2012, but have won four of their last six there.
"You have to play better at home in front of our fans," starting pitcher Joe Saunders, who took the loss in the series opener, told the Diamondbacks' official website. "They deserve better than this."
Kubel, who hit his fifth homer Tuesday, is 10 for 23 (...

Diamondbacks managing partner Ken Kendrick had some harsh words and criticism for two of his team's top players.
PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks right fielder Justin Upton was out of the lineup for a second conseuctive day Wednesday and said before the game he is still displeased with his benching amid ongoing struggles.
"I'm never happy about not being in the lineup," Upton said. "I'm still not happy about it. But with the day off today (and) a day off tomorrow, I don't...
PHOENIX -- When rookie left-hander Wade Miley was the last man to make the Opening Day roster as a long reliever, the Diamondbacks probably didn't expect he'd become their most effective starting pitcher through the season's first two months and an early contender for NL Rookie of the Year.
As much success as Miley has had on the mound, though, he has had about as much...
PHOENIX Diamondbacks rookie left-hander Wade Miley added Wednesday night to whats been an incredible season so far, though he seems to be the only one oblivious to the degree of his success. He's still just happy to be here.
"I was just excited from Day 1 when (manager Kirk Gibson) told be me I was going to be on the team," Miley said Wednesday night. "I didn...
Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Stephen Drew will join Triple-A Reno this week for what could be the last rehabilitation stop in his comeback from a brutal ankle injury nearly 11 months ago.
Manager Kirk Gibson says Drew will join the Aces for their game Thursday night at Reno. Gibson says how long Drew will be with Reno will be determined by what progress he makes there.
Things have not gone well for Justin Upton this season. After posting an MVP-caliber season in 2011, Upton has struggled to reach the same level this year. The situation worsened on Tuesday, when Arizona Diamondbacks’ Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick criticized Upton’s performance so far this season. Later that night, Upton left out of the Diamondbacks’ starting lineup...
Justin Upton sat for the second straight game, a 6-1 Arizona victory over Colorado on Wednesday, a day after he was criticized by Diamondbacks managing partner Ken Kendrick, who called Upton an "enigma" and said he should be more consistent by this point in his career. "I agree 100 percent," Upton said of Kendrick's critique. "I want to be consistent...

PHOENIX -- Every time it looks like the Diamondbacks are poised to put together a streak, it seems a maddeningly anemic offense comes along to suppress any momentum on which the team could capitalize.
Any momentum that might have carried over from a road trip that ended Sunday with the D-backs' third win in four games evaporated Monday when the D-backs failed to score a run...
