Diamondbacks Schedule: Ian Kennedy Headlines D-backs Duel With Florida Fish

Looks at those Arizona Diamondbacks getting love on Sports Center and up to fifth place in the power rankings on MLB.com. Winning seven-straight and 15 of 17 has that effect on people. The D-backs, however, are always just a couple of losses away from people jumping right off the bandwagon and throwing down the "they are who we thought they were" line. 

Tuesday will be an interesting test (at this point they all are) with staff ace Ian Kennedy (6-1, 3.01) taking on another NL West stud, Anibal Sanchez (4-1, 2.60). Sanchez threw a shut out against the Giants in his last outing and which only continues his dominance in the month of May. We know how good Kennedy's been (eight innings, one run in his last start).

The game Tuesday starts at 6:40 p.m. at Chase Field with the TV broadcast on Fox Sports Arizona and the live game thread at AZ Snake Pit.

Fan Confidence: We - AZ Snake Pit
Fans of the Diamondbacks haven’t had much to cheer for the past couple years.  Two years in the cellar, with regime upheavals and the dismissal of popular players.  But the Diamondbacks are back on top after nearly 1000 days in the wilderness. But it’s not the end.  Three long months remain in a season that could bury the Diamondbacks with all the other teams that peaked too early.
