Last year, the Diamondbacks started a promotion with Taco Bell that gave away free tacos whenever the Diamondbacks scored six runs or more in a game. In 2010, the Diamondbacks earned tacos for their fans 45 times, and won 41 of those games, for a winning percentage of .911. So far in 2011, the Diamondbacks are perfect in "Taco" games, as Monday's 12-9 win over the Marlins pushed the team's record to 19-0.  The Diamondbacks have the best record in the NL in 6+ Run games, and the Phillies are the only other undefeated team in the NL at 16-0.  The Marlins had been undefeated when they score 6+ runs until Monday night's loss.  Below are the records for each NL team when scoring 6 or more runs in a game:

Team Wins Losses Pct.
ARIZ 19 0 1.000
PHI 16 0 1.000
FLA 17 1 .944

The Diamondbacks have scored 6 or more runs in 19 out of 67 games this year (28.4%), almost exactly the same rate as in 2010 (45 out of 162, 27.8%).  League wide, however, run scoring is down, and teams have scored 6+ runs in a game in 27.4% of their games in 2011, down from a rate of 30.4% in 2010.
