The Diamondbacks are riding their longest winning streak of the season. It's been nearly six years since they posted three consecutive victories against the Phillies.
They'll try to change that Saturday night against Cliff Lee, who will make just his second career start at Chase Field.
Undefeated since a 1-5 skid, Arizona (21-15) is looking to notch its longest win streak since a run of seven in a row Aug. 9-16, 2011. Miguel Montero, dropped to the eighth spot, hit a go-ahead solo homer in the eighth inning to help the Diamondbacks pull out a 3-2 come-from-behind victory Friday.
"It was huge for us," said manager Kirk Gibson, whose team is tied with the Giants atop the NL West.
The D-backs had lost six of eight to the Phillies (16-21) heading into this four-game set, but with back-to-back one-run wins, they can make it three straight in this matchup for the first time since a three-game sweep in Philadelphia from May 28-30, 2007.
