Through 13 games, Arizona shocked many as they escaped an extremely tough schedule with an 8-5 record. The Diamondbacks went 5-3 against the Dodgers (#5 in the power rankings), 1-1 against the Padres (#4 in the power rankings), and 2-1 against the Brewers (#7 in the power rankings).

It was just about all you could ask for from this young ball club as they attempt to flip the narrative this season. The Diamondbacks have not made it to the postseason since 2017 as they have struggled to escape the rebuild phase.

However, this may be changing this year, if the first two weeks are any indication. With three series against some of the best teams in baseball in the books, Arizona has already begun to attract national attention. This is something that Arizona has seen barely any of over the past decade.

Fans not just in Arizona but across the league have fallen in love with the Diamondbacks style of play, which is aggressive and quick. The D-backs are currently second in the MLB for stolen bases, which is only bound to improve as the season goes on.

The D-backs will look to improve to 9-5 on the season with veteran Madison Bumgarner on the mound against the Florida Marlins, first pitch is at 3:40.
