Arizona managed to pull off not one, not two, but three double steals in just four innings.

This led them to beat their previous record of seven stolen bases, which they achieved less than two months ago on June 21st.

So far this season, the Diamondbacks are third in the MLB with 119 stolen bases, and just 20 shy of breaking their single season record of 137.

Corbin Carroll leads the charge with 36 swiped bags, third overall in the league. Jake McCarthy follows with 25 steals, and Geraldo Perdomo has contributed 13.

Unfortunately, even with all these stolen bases, the Diamondbacks continue to struggle offensively. It has now been 10 games in a row where Arizona’s offense has produced less than five runs.
