Diamondbacks getting aggressive on the basepaths
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Diamondbacks have been speed demons so far this season. Arizona entered Saturday's game tied for second in the National League with 40 stolen bases, led by A.J. Pollock with 10 and Paul Goldschmidt with eight.

"What we've really tried to do the whole year is if there's an opportunity there, be aggressive with it," Goldschmidt said to MLB.com. "It's just another way we can get a guy into scoring position and make it a little bit easier on offense to score."

Pollock is tied for fourth in the NL with his stolen bases and 12 different players have recorded at least one stolen base.

"If it is a good spot and it's a good opportunity to take one, we'll try to take it," Pollock said. "We've got a pretty dynamic team and overall our team speed is pretty good. You've got a couple guys that kind of fly under the radar with speed and they can sneak one here and there."

Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock continues hot hitting roll
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock went 1 for 4 in Arizona's 9-6 loss on Saturday. It was Pollock's first "bad game" in his last five. Entering Saturday, Pollock was 10 for 16 in the last four, something he can't explain, according to MLB.com.

"Just clicking, I don't know what's going on," Pollock said. "It's just baseball, you feel like you've got something, you're not getting hits, then you do the same thing and you're getting hits. It's just how the game is."

Manager Chip Hale noted his approach change to his recent success.

"He's really turned it up in just the mental part of the game, of picking the pitches that he wants to go after, whether it's the first pitch or a pitch with two strikes," Hale said. "Instead of trying to guess or wait, he's looking for a good pitch to hit out over the plate and using the whole field."

Pollock is now hitting .308 with 16 RBI in 156 at-bats this season.

D-Backs' A..J. Pollock steals home, nets career-high three SBs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock had a career-high three stolen bases in Wednesday's 6-1 win against the Marlins, which included a steal of home in the fifth inning.

During a first-and-third situation in the fifth, Marlins starting pitcher David Phelps attempted a pickoff move to first base. Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta broke for second base. Marlins first baseman Michael Morse then fired the baseball down to second base. As this was happening, Pollock broke for home. Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon then chose to throw home instead of tag out Peralta for the second out. However, Pollock easily scored to put Arizona ahead 4-0.

"I saw Dave kind of getting in the middle there, saw the throw and went," Pollock said, per MLB.com. "It's a good chance, good try right there. I wanted to get the best jump I could. I knew no matter what they would have to make a good throw. It was definitely worth getting out there and cheating a little bit. Morse had the ball. It worked out."

It marked the seventh steal of home in Diamondbacks history. The last time it happened was Aug. 8, 2014, when Peralta stole home against the Rockies.

"If it's there, we'll take it," said Pollock, who has nine steals this season. "It's even more when we're not forcing the issue. Couple guys can get out there. We really could be forcing something that's not there. We do a good job; if they give us something, we'll take it. If not, then we'll hold off."
