The Arizona Diamondbacks are just 7 games into the 2015 baseball season and they are off to a good start. They play the second game of a three game series tonight in San Diego against the Padre's and go in with a 4-3 record.
The record may not jump out at you as good, but when you look at the teams they've played it's very impressive. They opened the season against the defending Champions the San Francisco Giants. They lost 2 of the 3 games but showed the rest of the league that they are going to be competitive this season.
The second series of the season they played host to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a team many feel can win the World Series this year. With Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke schedule to pitch the second and third game it was almost a must win for the D Backs in game one. Well they delivered with a 4-3 victory.
The next night the fans packed the stadium, but it wasn't just for the Hello Kitty Bobble heads. It was to see the major league debut of starting pitcher Archie Bradley. Bradley's performance was just short of spectacular. He pitched 6 scoreless innings and struck out 6 to lead Arizona to a 6-0 win. They dropped the last game but did win what could end up being a very important divisional series.
The Diamondbacks may not have a good season, or even make the playoffs but if they play the rest of the season the way they've played the first week one thing is for sure. They are going to compete in every single game.
