After having its five-game winning streak snapped in the series opener, Arizona looks to begin a new streak on Wednesday in the middle contest of the three-game set at Texas. The Diamondbacks will have to hope that Texas starter Matt Harrison is not as dominant as hurler Colby Lewis was in the opener. Lewis took a perfect game into the sixth inning en route to a complete-game four-hitter.
