The Arizona Diamondbacks find themselves over .500 (62-61) after finishing off a sweep of the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. This is the first time the D-backs have been over .500 since April 22nd when they were 8-7.
The offense was rock solid in this series and the bullpen was stellar for the most part as well. That formula was the main reason that the Diamondbacks were able to get back on the right track. This series was crucial towards the progress that Arizona needed with their upcoming schedule.
The D-Backs will face the Cardinals next but following that series, Arizona will face Oakland and Colorado. Those two series are very winnable and could further improve the situation that the Diamondbacks are in right now.
