Diamondbacks 0, Padres 1

Montero strikes out. No, really! - Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

Patrick Corbin pitched very well, but unfortunately, Tyson Ross pitched even better, as the Diamondbacks were blanked on three hits, to lose the game and the series at Chase Field this afternoon.

The Padres scored their run in the first: Patrick Corbin got the first two outs, but then allowed a pair of base hits, to give San Diego the lead. But that was all the visitors got against our starter, as he then settled down, working seven additional innings without any further damage. Corbin allowed six hits and no walks, with eight strikeouts, in another excellent start that lowered his season ERA to 2.24, fourth-best in the National League. Brad Ziegler pitched a scoreless ninth for Arizona, to keep it a one-run game.

However, the Diamondbacks had even less success against Tyson Ross. Their best chance to tie things up, came in the third when Cliff Pennington tripled to lead things off. However, a shallow fly-ball, ground-out to second and strikeout that followed left him stranded there. Arizona got only one man past first-base the rest of the way - and there weren't that many reaching first-base to begin with, as the offense produced only three hits and a walk. The D-backs still haven't won a series since before the All-Star break, and now hit the road for six tough road games against Tampa,. Texas and Boston. We will need to play much better.

The Dodgers are currently scoreless against the Reds, so we may hold on at 1.5 games back. Or we may not. Stay tuned.
