Following a night in which everything went their way, the Diamondbacks look to extend their modest winning streak to three games as they play host to the Cubs at Bank One Ballpark on Tuesday.

   Brandon Webb  /   P
Born: 05/09/79
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 230 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R

Brandon Webb will take the mound for the Diamondbacks. The right-hander has struggled in the first inning of his starts this year, though he was able to keep the Brewers off the board in the initial frame of his last start.

The right-hander can only hope for the kind of support Randy Johnson got Monday night when the D-Backs beat the Cubs, 9-0.

Lost amid Johnson's performance and a tape-measure homer by Richie Sexson was the fact that outfielder Danny Bautista extended his hitting streak to 18 games with a single in the fourth inning. The streak is the longest in the Majors this year.

Pitching matchup:
CHC: RHP Sergio Mitre

  • 1-0, 2.89 ERA in 2004
  • Has never faced ARI

    ARI: RHP Brandon Webb

  • 1-1, 2.74 ERA in 2004
  • 0-0, 1.93 ERA career vs. Cubs

    Players to watch
    Sexson -- The slugger hit a couple of balls back up the middle Monday and when he does that, it's usually a sign he's locked in.

    Quotable
    "Good defense, some offense and the rest is the 'Richie Sexson Show'." -- Johnson on Monday's game
