Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 8

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 8

Bad starting pitching? Or bad hitting? Why not have both! The wheels truly fell off the Kochmobile this afternoon, as he was tagged for eight earned runs in 4.1 innings. Most of the damage came courtesy of the long-ball, with the Brewers clubbing four home-runs off Matt Koch. But there were a lot of hard-hit balls in general: he allowed nine hits and a walk, not striking out a batter. T.J. McFarland led the mop-up operation with 2.2 scoreless frames, followed by zeroes from Jorge De La Rosa and Andrew Chafin. The offense was held to two runs, both coming on Daniel Descalso’s first-inning...

Snake Bytes 5/16: Daniel Desclutcho Snaps Streak

Snake Bytes 5/16: Daniel Desclutcho Snaps Streak

The Diamondbacks’ offense struggled yet again, scoring only two runs on three hits. Timing is everything however, as Daniel Descalso’s eighth-inning knock pushed home the winning run, ending Arizona’s losing streak at six games. Milwaukee 1, Arizona 2 Zack Greinke and Jhoulys Chacin engaged in an old-fashioned pitching duel. Of the two, Chacin had the better night, but neither one of them finished the game. The Diamondbacks had better luck against the Milwaukee bullpen than the Brewers did against the three-headed monster of Hirano, Bradley, and Boxberger. Descalso Comes Through in...

Diamondbacks 2, Brewers 1: Never mind the Pollocks

Diamondbacks 2, Brewers 1: Never mind the Pollocks

But.. but.. I was ASSURED that was #SeasonOver? Record: 25-17. Pace: 96-66. Change on 2017: +1. If it feels like Arizona has been involved in a lot of close games this season... they have. This was the sixteenth decided (in either direction) by one run, and the twenty-fifth decided by two or fewer. Both figures are the most in the National League. This was, it seems, by design: the focus of Mike Hazen, Torey Lovullo and the rest of the front-office crew has been on pitching and defense, designed to minimize run scoring. And then, of course, there’s the much-discussed humidor. But,...

Arizona's bullpen bests Brewers' bullpen in 2-1 win

Jhoulys Chacin has best start as a Brewer with 7 inning, 1 run gem WP: Archie Bradley (1-1); LP: Taylor Williams (0-1); Save: Brad Boxberger (12); Home runs: none Sigh. A sad box score Jhoulys Chacin and Zack Greinke locked up in a pitchers’ duel in Phoenix Tuesday night as the Arizona Diamondbacks (25-17) nipped the Milwaukee Brewers (25-18) 2-1 with an eighth inning run off of the Brewers’ “B” bullpen. The Diamondbacks had only three hits, but two walks by Brewers pitchers came across to score. Milwaukee totaled just five hits. With the ballgame tied at one into the bottom of the...

Descalso knocks in run in 8th, D-backs end skid with 2-1 win

PHOENIX — Daniel Descalso singled home Jarrod Dyson with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak.The Diamondbacks opened the game with the worst batting average in the majors (.223) and learned earlier in the day they had lost A.J. Pollock for four-to-eight weeks with a fractured left thumb. They then managed just three hits against starter Jhoulys Chacin and three relievers, but starter Zack Greinke stifled Milwaukee over six innings and Arizona tied together just enough offense to get...

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 1

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win. Zack Greinke and Jhoulys Chacin were involved in a pitching duel this evening at Chase Field. The Brewers were the first to strike, a pair doubles getting them on the board in the fourth inning. But the D-backs immediately came back to tie things up in their half - though perhaps unsurprisingly, did it despite being hitless with a runner in scoring position. The run scored as Steven Souza hit into a double-play. Greinke was otherwise very solid, and as last start, deserved better than a no-decision. He allowed one run over six innings, on four hits and...
