In Friday night's 4-2 win over the Phillies, Johnson went 1-for-4 with an RBI. The third baseman entered Saturday's game 7-for-14 with one double, two home runs and eight RBIs in four games since he was acquired from the Astros.
"I was feeling pretty good before I got traded, trying to simplify my approach and just see the ball," Johnson said. "I've been seeing the ball pretty well. It was a good time for it, so I could come over here and be a little more comfortable and get some hits to try to help out."
As any player would, Johnson also said it was fun to be part of a pennant race, something he would not have experienced with Houston. The D-backs entered Saturday having won the first four games of their road trip, also winning 11 of their past 14 games. At 55-51, they're just two games back of the first-place Giants and a half-game behind the Dodgers in the National League West.
"It's a great clubhouse, a very relaxed clubhouse," Johnson said. "Guys just want to win. That's really all it's about here. It's pretty fun to be around."
Said manager Kirk Gibson: "He's been good for us. To expect him to keep up that pace is not realistic. But he's playing really well right now. I think he feels very comfortable. He's enjoying himself."
