Diamondbacks 1, Reds 2

The Diamondbacks needed a solid start by Trevor Cahill, and they got it. Unfortunately, they did not get the win.

After using every pitcher in last night's game, Trevor Cahill had to go deep into this game. It wasn't looking good for a while - Cahill walked the bases loaded in the 2nd inning, and threw three wild pitches in the 3rd inning. The wild pitches that advanced the runners allowed Shin-Soo Choo to score for Cincinnati on a simple groundout.

But after that, Cahill settled down. Amidst his four hits and four walks, he struck out seven Reds and ended up pitching seven complete innings.

Arizona scored its only run in the 4th inning. Adam Eaton led off the frame with a single, advanced to third, and scored on a two-out single by Aaron Hill.

Eury De La Rosa came in for the 8th inning and was as "effective" as Cahill. Choo singled, advanced on a De La Rosa throwing error, and scored on a wild pitch to put the Reds up 2-1.

The Diamondbacks had few chances to score throughout the game, as Mat Latos was solid all afternoon. Eaton and Paul Goldschmidt were on base in the 6th inning, but were stranded. In the 9th inning, Goldschmidt singled for his third hit of the afternoon, and Hill singled to put two runners on. But Jason Kubel struck out looking, his third strikeout of the day, and Nieves ground out weakly to end the game.
