With two off days, it was a short week for the Arizona Diamondbacks. But it was enough time for Auburn native Tim Locastro to make another big play in the majors. 

Here's a recap of Locastro's week in Major League Baseball: 

Tuesday, July 2: Locastro didn't play in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Wednesday, July 3: On the eve of Independence Day, Locastro didn't start but entered the game when Diamondbacks left fielder David Peralta left due to an injury. It didn't take long for him to make an impact. 

In the sixth inning, Dodgers second baseman Enrique Hernandez hit a long fly ball to left field. Locastro made a leaping catch to rob Hernandez of an extra-base hit. 

The catch made up for Locastro's 0-for-3 performance at the plate. The Dodgers defeated the Diamondbacks 5-4. 

Friday, July 5: Locastro entered the game in the ninth inning as a defensive replacement. The Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 8-0 in the first of a three-game series. 

Saturday, July 6: Locastro started and was the lead-off hitter for the Diamondbacks against the Rockies. He went 1-for-5 at the plate with an infield single. The Diamondbacks won 4-2. 

Sunday, July 7: Locastro didn't play as the Diamondbacks finished off the series sweep with a 5-3 win over the Rockies. The Diamondbacks are now 46-45 and enter the All-Star break 1.5 games back in the National League Wild Card race.
