“That’s a big win,” manager Brian Snitker said after Sunday’s victory. “The last two days, what these guys went through. ... It was just good for the guys to bounce back today and get this win going into Arizona.”
The four-game series in Arizona begins Monday. The Diamondbacks are an atrocious 48-101, the worst record in the NL, and have lost five of their last six. The Braves must take advantage, especially with the Phillies beginning a homestand against the equally dreadful Orioles and Pirates.
