ST. LOUIS -- The keys to the D-backs' success are clear.
"If you look at the numbers, we have to score three or more to have a chance," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "And if we homer more than once, we're much better. If we don't do those things, numbers-wise it's not been good for us."
When the D-backs score four or more runs they are 55-15. When they score three or less they are just 3-44.
Gibson said he is happy with the energy level and hustle of his team even though it can look listless when it's not scoring runs.
"When you're not hitting, it doesn't seem like you have energy, period," Gibson said.
