Diamondbacks enjoy a little payback
DENVER -- The sun cast a bright glow to the ballpark, and the 69-diamond-filled pennant rings sparkled when the light hit the right spot. The purple carpet had been rolled out and goodwill filled a ballpark hopeful that its National League championship team was ready to begin playing like one.And just as everything seemed back to normal in the Colorado Rockies' world, young Diamondbacks Mark Reynolds and Stephen Drew entered it and created chaos. In a dramatic turn, Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning and Drew hit a solo shot in the 10th to help Arizona to a 5-2 win and series sweep over its division rival on Sunday. Six months after it was swept on the same field, Arizona returned with some vengeance.
We were pretty good last year and we haven't changed up our team too much. We know what we've got here and we're not playing anywhere near our potential.
--Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki
