Two Great Pictures

These two guys were the story as the D-backs won today's game against the Cubs 5-4, taking the series 2-1 and the season series 4-2. Chris Young (I just think this picture of Young patrolling Centerfield looks sort of artsy) got two home runs that accounted for 4 of the 5 runs. José Valverde got the save, one scary affair that was resolve by a strike-em-out-throw-em-out (at third!) double play and then a 3-1 force out at first after a difficult grab by Tony Clark. The picture shows Valverde's reaction. I wish I had a picture of the coaches going nuts in the bullpen. Lead in the NL West returns to 3 games as the Padres get clobbered by Philadelphia.
