The Diamondbacks continued their hot hitting last night, with 2B Kelly Johnson hitting his 12th homer of the season already last night. 1B Adam LaRoche also hit 2 homers, bringing him to 6 for the season. Both of these players were free agents during the last offseason, and Johnson was a non-tender originally. I'm not sold that either of them can keep up hitting at the pace they have to this point, but with Johnson you've got a player who has pretty much already hit for more power that you probably expected for the entire remainder of the season. So you're playing with house money at this point, just enjoy the ride.
