LOS ANGELES -- The Arizona Diamondbacks hope that their first victory in a week will provide some confidence moving forward.
The Diamondbacks broke a six-game losing streak Friday night with a 4-2 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"That tells them we're better than the way we've been playing lately," catcher Miguel Montero said. "We played solid. We did all the little things. That's what you get when you play the game the right way."
That losing streak played a major role in Arizona's 4-14 start, the worst in team history. Speculation has centered around the possibility of manager Kirk Gibson and general manager Kevin Towers losing their jobs.
President Derrick Hall tried to defuse such speculation Thursday.
"This is not the time to focus on the job status of either one of them," Hall said. "Two of the worst things we can do is act on emotion and act too soon, or act too late."
