Good Clean Up Hitters Always Clean Up After Themselves

Upton dropped a backside bomb off Clay Condrey to put it away

Justin Upton’s homer-drought is over. Hitting clean-up for the first time on the season today, he had a beautiful piece of hitting just moments ago to make it 8-1 Arizona. The DiamondBacks are routing the Philadelphia Phillies in this matinee out in Arizona, which will earn each team a split in this four game series that I believe was a matchup of the NL’s two best ballclubs.

Brandon Webb improves to 8-0 on the season with 3 more outs by the DBacks’ pitching staff. Also homering in this game was Chris Young.
