Justin Uptons return Monday overshadows just about everything else going on between the Braves and the Diamondbacks as they prepare for a three-game series that opens Monday, the teams' only set at Chase Field this year. Both teams are playing well as they are newly structured -- the Braves (21-16) are in first place in the NL East and the D-backs (21-17) are in second in the NL West. Upton got off to a blistering start and still leads the major leagues with 12 home runs, although he does not have one in his last 40 at-bats, and his .990 OPS is sixth in the National League. Pitching matchups: Monday -- LHP Minor (4-2, 2.96 ERA) vs. LHP Wade Miley (3-1, 2.93). Tuesday -- RHP Julio Teheran (2-0, 4.84) vs. LHP Patrick Corbin (5-0, 1.75). Wednesday -- RHP Tim Hudson (4-2, 4.70) vs. RHP Ian Kennedy (1-3, 4.83).
