Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) -
Following a late rally in the opener of this three-game series, the Arizona Diamondbacks try to pick up another victory over the San Diego Padres in Saturday night's meeting at Chase Field.
The Diamondbacks trailed for much of Friday's contest before exploding for five runs in the seventh inning and they held on for the 5-2 triumph.
Paul Goldschmidt was 2-for-4, including a two-run double in the seventh, and he continues to be among the league leaders in hitting (.320) and RBI (38). A.J. Pollock finished 3-for-4 out of the leadoff spot and also had an RBI in the pivotal seventh.
Cabrera starting to do his thing

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
If you are a baseball fan you should really sit back and appreciate what is happening in Detroit.
Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera could very well be on his way to becoming the best hitter this game has seen in some time. Yes Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez were great and few players were ever as prolific as Barry Bonds, but I'm pretty sure we can all agree there may have been something else fueling them.
Perhaps history will one day tell us that Cabrera was doing a little more than just saying his prayers and eating his vitamins, but for now we should just accept the fact that we could be watching the best all-around hitter since Ted Williams.
