They started the season 8-8. That was the last time they were .500. They have tried 12 times since and failed on all attempts. Well number 13 was their lucky number! Not only did they complete a 2 game sweep of the Texas Ranger's in Texas but it moved their record to 42-42.
The Dbacks now travel to New York to play a three game series with the Mets before the All-Star break. If they can win two out of three they will finish the first half of the season above .500 and in a surprising good position to make a playoff run.
