(AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks will try to do something they haven't done since 2007 when they return to action Tuesday at Philadelphia.

They'll try to extend their record to 16 games over .500 when they go up against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Arizona, already 15 games over .500, hasn't been this far in front of that mark since the year the team won the National League West.

The Diamondbacks are coming off a 10-game homestand during which they went 7-3. The Phillies series marks the opening of a 10-game trip for Arizona.

Right-hander Josh Collmenter is scheduled to start on the mound Tuesday against Philadelphia ace Roy Halladay.
