At the end of the last Major League Baseball season, the Arizona Diamondbacks had won only 65 games and finished in last place in its division. But in 2011, the Diamondbacks made a remarkable turnaround to finish in first place in the National League West division.
The Diamondbacks’ final record this season was 94 wins and 68 losses — a 29-win turnaround from 2010! The team also found itself in the playoffs, where they have been facing the Milawuakee Brewers, the team that won the National League Central division.
Game 3 of the Diamondbacks’ first-round series against the Brewers is tonight, and Arizona down 0 game to 2. If the Diamondbacks lose tonight, its season is over. But the team is playing at home, which it hopes gives the players an advantage. If Arizona wins, Game 4 will also be played in Phoenix. And if the D’backs win Game 4, the final game of the series will be played in Milwuakee. The winner will then take on the winner of the Philadelphia Phillies - St. Louis Cardinals series in the National League Championship Series.
But however things turn out, this has been a great season for the Arizona Diamondbacks!
