D-backs steal seven bases on the Marlins, including home

BY foxsports • May 21, 2015

On Wednesday the Diamondbacks stole seven bases for the seventh time in team history. While A.J. Pollock stole home in the fifth inning, David Peralta swiped second -- a play which was not originally credited as a steal for Peralta. Per MLB.com, Pollock discussed his steal of home:

"I saw Dave (Marlins pitcher David Phelps) kind of getting in the middle there, saw the throw and went," Pollock said. "It's a good chance, good try right there. I wanted to get the best jump I could. I knew no matter what they would have to make a good throw. It was definitely worth getting out there and cheating a little bit. Morse had the ball. It worked out."

Pollock’s steal of home was one of three he had in the game -- a career-high for him. The steals were of second, third and home, making him the first D-back player to accomplish the feat.
