Big league scouts may have yet to figure out a pair of the Diamondbacks' hottest rookies, but Chase Anderson and David Peralta are already quite well acquainted. The two spent time with Double-A Mobile before their respective call-ups — Anderson's at the beginning of May and Peralta's a week ago. Neither is surprised that the other is succeeding in the majors so far. "He hits the ball super hard in BP," Anderson said. "Everybody's like, 'We've got to watch this guy, because if you get hit, it might kill you.' My truck got shipped out here (when I was called up), and two days before it got shipped out here he hit a home run in BP and it broke the back window of my truck out." No glass was shattered Sunday, but both Anderson and Peralta played key roles in leading the Diamondbacks to a series-clinching 6-5 win over the Atlanta Braves at Chase Field. The right-handed Anderson gave up just two runs over seven innings, and Peralta smashed a two-run, game-tying home run in the seventh to get the Diamondbacks back in the game. The win boosted Arizona to 28-37, boosting them within single-digits of .500 for the first time since April 18. The Diamondbacks have won back-to-back series and four of their past five. Peralta and Anderson are just as hot. Peralta has now recorded a hit in his first seven major-league games, setting a new franchise record. Anderson moved to 5-0 in his first five starts, becoming just the third pitcher since 1998 to do so. "Those guys have been doing a great job for us," catcher Miguel Montero. "They've definitely been helping us big time. Hopefully they continue to do that." The 26-year-old Anderson is unfailingly humble, always saying that he's just trying to give his team a chance to win. But since his call-up it seems to be the other way around. Anderson entered the game having received a ridiculous 10.2 runs of support per nine innings pitched, and got another six to vault him to a win Sunday. Anderson had actually pitched a tight game through the top of the seventh, his only misstep being a two-run homer by Justin Upton in the sixth. He recorded career highs in strikeouts (eight), innings pitched (seven) and pitches (100) and seemed destined to take a loss as the Diamondbacks' bats faltered against Braves starter Aaron Harang.
