Welington Castillo was ready to speak about his big day for Arizona only to pause when something on the television caught his attention. Tough to fault Castillo for wanting to stop watch highlights of his two home runs, especially when they came against Seattle ace Felix Hernandez. Castillo hit a pair of home runs off Hernandez, including a two-run shot in the first inning sending Arizona to an 8-2 win over the Mariners on Wednesday a fifth straight win for the Diamondbacks.

No one has hit more home runs in interleague games since the start of last season than Nelson Cruz. If that wasn’t daunting enough for Arizona’s attempt to extend a scoreless streak, the Seattle Mariners slugger has been locked in during recent home games and will seek to build on this weekend’s impressive performance in Monday night’s opener against the Diamondbacks. Cruz has hit 15 homers in 31 interleague games since the start of 2014, five more than the next-closest batters: Toronto’s Jose Bautista and Houston’s Colby Rasmus.

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale walked out to the mound in the eighth inning, fully ready to bring in closer Brad Ziegler. Before pulling the trigger, he wanted to visit Rubby De La Rosa to determine if he had anything left.
