The longest current winning streak in the National League belongs to the 61-59 Arizona Diamondbacks.
With center fielder Chris Young going 4-for-5, right fielder Justin Upton finishing 2-for-6 and second baseman Aaron Hill driving home three, the Snakes cruised to their third straight victory on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, stomping the Astros 12-4.
Young has four extra-base hits and five RBI over his past four games and has lifted his OPS a whole 40 points (from .728 to .768) in just four days. Hill, meanwhile, boasts 15 total homers and 52 total RBI.
The Diamondbacks are 19-16 since the All-Star break — keeping afloat in the National League West.
