The Arizona Diamondbacks are probably thrilled to be back home facing the lowly Houston Astros.
Coming off a huge offensive effort, the Diamondbacks look for a fifth consecutive home victory Saturday night against the Astros.
One day after blowing a six-run lead in a 7-6 loss at Cincinnati to conclude a 2-5 trip, Arizona (45-48) pounded out 14 hits during a 13-8 win over Houston on Friday.
"It was nice to get the bats going," said right fielder Justin Upton, who hit his 99th career homer and had three RBIs. "We executed."
Aaron Hill had three hits and Stephen Drew added three RBIs on the one-year anniversary of his devastating season-ending ankle injury for the Diamondbacks, who have totaled 30 runs while winning four straight at home after losing four in a row at Chase Field.
Arizona seems to have a good chance to continue its home success this weekend against Houston (34-60), which has lost 15 of 19 against the Diamondbacks and eight of 11 in Phoenix.
