Diamondbacks 3, White Sox 9

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

A seven-run fourth inning brought the Diamondbacks' modest winning streak to a grinding halt, as the wheels fell of the Brandon McCarthy mobile tonight in Chicago.

And, it was going so well too. The Diamondbacks had taken a two-run lead in the top of the third inning, after a Cody Ross single was followed by Gerardo Parra's third home-run of the year. And McCarthy was cruising, retiring the first nine batters he faced, to kick off the evening. But then the fourth inning happened. Lazy approach, copy and pasting from the game-log time:

  • 1. Alejandro De Aza doubles (3) on a fly ball to center fielder A. J. Pollock.
  • 2. Gordon Beckham singles on a line drive to center fielder A. J. Pollock. Alejandro De Aza scores.
  • 3. Conor Gillaspie singles on a line drive to left fielder Cody Ross. Gordon Beckham to 2nd.
  • 4. Jose Abreu singles on a line drive to left fielder Cody Ross. Gordon Beckham scores. Conor Gillaspie to 2nd.
  • 5. Adam Dunn strikes out swinging.
  • 6. Dayan Viciedo singles on a ground ball to right fielder Gerardo Parra. Conor Gillaspie to 3rd. Jose Abreu to 2nd.
  • 7. Alexei Ramirez hits a grand slam (5) to left field. Conor Gillaspie scores. Jose Abreu scores. Dayan Viciedo scores.
  • 8. Moises Sierra singles on a line drive to right fielder Gerardo Parra.
  • 9. Tyler Flowers singles on a line drive to left fielder Cody Ross. Moises Sierra to 3rd.
  • 10. Alejandro De Aza singles on a ground ball to right fielder Gerardo Parra. Moises Sierra scores. Tyler Flowers to 2nd.

That was it for McCarthy. 10 batters faced, one retired, resulting in nine hits and seven runs allowed. Trevor Cahill took things for a bit, allowing one run in 3.2 innings, and Joe Thatcher gave up a solo home-run in the eighth. Meanwhile, we managed only four hits, with Ross getting his first extra-base hit of the year, and being driven in by A.J. Pollock. So, outside of the fourth inning, we outscored the White Sox 3-2. So that's nice.
