Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-15


Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-15
--OF Justin Upton doubled, tripled and scored Wednesday to raise his batting average to .306, a day after losing a career-high 18-game hitting streak. Since being installed to the No. 3 spot in the batting order May 6 in San Diego, Upton is hitting .387 with three doubles, three homers and six RBIs in 31 at-bats. "No manager alive is going to take Justin out of the lineup," manager A.J. Hinch said.

--INF Augie Ojeda's bases-empty home run in the seventh inning Wednesday was his first homer in 410 at-bats. It was his first since June 15, 2007, his first game with the D-backs, when he went deep off RHP Danys Baez in Baltimore. Ojeda has seven homers in 790 career at-bats.

--OF Gerardo Parra became the second player in franchise history to homer in his first career at-bat Wednesday. OF Alex Cabrera was the first, homering on June 26, 2000, against Houston. Both firsts came at Chase Field. Cabrera hit five homers in 80 at-bats in his only season with the D-backs before beginning a long career in the Japanese leagues.
