The Arizona Diamondbacks got into the fight concerning their division rival Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night, as the D-backs beat up on the Dodgers to the tune of a 18-7 victory. In this game punching back was an under statement.

Coming into tonight after a loss the previous night to Greinke, the D-backs were facing the Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw,;which figured to be a hard task, but the D-backs made quick work of the star ace lefty on Saturday Night.

Kershaw (2-1) only lasted one inning and two thirds as the D-backs first twelve batters put his night to an early rest.

The D-backs bats got on fire tonight as they hit five home runs on the night, two from Paul Goldschmidt whom was in a bit of a funk the beginning of this month going three out of 26 his last at bats.

There were many records broken in this game, and turned out to be a very exciting night for the 36,000 plus fans that attending the game, which haven't seen many home wins this season. The D-backs scored enough runs on Saturday to make up for a few home losses scoring 18 runs on a record 21 hits.

The D-backs did a great job at leading off tonight and getting base runners on base for Goldschmidt to drive in, although he had plenty of company as the D-back bats were on fire tonight.

The best thing that comes from a spanking like this is that the D-backs just may have gotten the Dodgers attention, but playing with this style of passion and manhandling an ace like Kershaw this just may be enough to turn the season completely around.
