Diamondbacks 4, Rockies 9

Doug Pensinger

The D-backs just began the season 1-7, their worst start in club history.

It looked promising from the start. The Diamondbacks got up on the board in the first inning, and had a four run lead by the end of the third, but crumbled from then on out en route to a 9-4 loss to begin the year with just one win in eight games. The pitching looks more and more like it will be the downfall of 2014.

In what seemed to be the metaphor of the game, Brandon McCarthy looked great and efficient to start out, but laid an egg in innings 4-6 leading to his mediocre 6 IP, 7 H, 3 HR and 6 ER line on the night. The bullpen didn't fare any better, as the combo of Ryan Rowland-Smith and Will Harris allowed three more runs in the next two.

The offense chased Jorge De La Rosa from the game after just 4 1/3 innings but couldn't touch the Rockies' bullpen thereafter going 2-for-20 to end the game. To make matters worse, Paul Goldschmidt wasn't able to collect a hit to extend his hitting streak.

This has been the worst start in club history, and therefore it can only go up from here, right? RIGHT?
