Braves lineup:
  1. Michael Bourn, CF
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Martin Prado, LF
  4. Brian McCann, C
  5. Dan Uggla, 2B
  6. Chipper Jones, 3B

Well, many of us have been complaining about the lineup's being put out by Fredi Gonzalez, and it appears he finally listened. Heyward is finally up in the top part of the order, and the lineup is as optimized as you can get it.

The D-backs are hitting .343 (74-for-216) with 16 doubles, 5 triples, 14 home runs and 51 runs scored (8.5 per game) over their last 6 games. In addition, they are 23-for-56 (.411) with runners in scoring position during that span.

Arizona ranks among the NL leaders in June in average (.284), SLG (1st, .494), runs per game (1st, 5.52), runs scored(1st, 116), home runs (T-1st, 31), OBP (2nd, .342), triples (T-2nd, 7) and doubles (T-3rd, 44)
