Merrill Kelly has eyes on another win vs. Cubs

Merrill Kelly has been one of Major League Baseball's top pitchers over the last month for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Chicago Cubs experienced that firsthand.

The right-hander looks for a fifth straight winning decision when the visiting Diamondbacks continue their three-game series with the Cubs on Saturday.

Kelly (6-7, 4.46 ERA) has been Arizona's most successful starting pitcher in terms of victories this season, and he continues to draw reported interest around the majors as the trade deadline approaches. He's been extremely solid of late, going 4-0 with a 2.56 ERA in six starts since June 21.
