D-Backs are going to the World Series!

Jered Weaver won two decisions to help the Arizona Diamondbacks eliminate the Seattle Mariners in a short five game series:

AZ 6, SEA 5 - Carlos Pena hit two homers and drove in  3 runs, Weaver gets win over Mariners ace Felix hernandez

AZ 5, SEA 2 - Martin Prado went 3-for-5 with 4 RBI's; lefty Dallas Braden baffled Seattle's powerful right handed lineup of Pujols, Braun and ARod to get the victory

SEA 7, AZ 2 - Mariners get back in the series as Jon Lester fanned 9 for the win; Ryan Braun went 3-for-3 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI's

AZ 5, SEA 4 - Jered Weaver picked up his third post season win with another gutting pitching performance - this time over the other Mariner ace Justin Verlander.  Arizona rallied in the bottom of the 8th for three big runs off Seattle's Billy Wagner.  Martin Prado hit a solo homer in the 8th.

AZ 3, SEA 1 - Barry Zito got his first start in the series and he did not disappoint as he pitched seven strong innings for the win.  Zito only allowed one run.  Felix Hernandez, who had two losses in the series, was the hard luck loser as he only allowed two runs over seven innings.

Arizona now meets Los Angeles for the Championship.....
