Arizona Diamondbacks Notes, Quotes 2009-05-05
--The D-backs tied a franchise record for home runs in an inning when 3B Mark Reynolds, OF Justin Upton and C Miguel Montero hit bases-empty homers in the seventh inning of a 4-3 loss to Milwaukee on Sunday. It was the 10th three-homer inning in franchise history, the first since Sept. 28, 2002, when OF Steve Finley, 3B Matt Williams and OF Felix Jose did it in the sixth inning of a 17-8 victory over Colorado.

--RHP Dan Haren hit the daily double Saturday when he beat Milwaukee and won two clubhouse Kentucky Derby pools by randomly drawing Mine That Bird, a 50-1 longshot. Haren, 3-3, won his third straight start and dropped his ERA to 1.47, the third lowest in the major leagues among qualifiers. All six of his starts have been quality starts.

BY THE NUMBERS: .212 -- D-backs' batting average with runners in scoring position.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "To succeed in anything -- fielding, base running and, of course, hitting, you have to be aggressive and kind of let your baseball instincts take over. It's really just playing the game and finding a way to get it done." -- OF Justin Upton, about his approach during his 10-game hitting streak.
