Ross sets personal best with five-hit game

PHOENIX -- Although he didn't realize it at the time, D-backs outfielder Cody Ross did something Saturday night he had never done in his 10-year Major League tenure. By going 5-for-5 at the plate, Ross set a career-high in hits for a single game and matched the franchise record for a 16th time.

"I didn't even know I've never had five hits, but obviously it's nice to do that," Ross said. "To get some consecutive hits in a row feels good, but it feels even better to win. That's the main thing. It never feels good to get hits and lose. Glad I could contribute and help out the team."

Paul Goldschmidt described Ross' memorable night as "five professional at-bats." The 32-year-old tallied four singles and a double while he came around to score three times.

Ross struggled a bit in June, batting .243, but through six games in July, he is hitting .370.

"Cody has been good, he has been determined," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "Last night was the best he has swung the bat, he hit the ball all over the field, that's him."
