Diamondbacks Unable to Complete Sweep

Wade Miley pitched seven strong innings, leaving the game down 2-1 as the Diamondbacks' offense (outside of Bloomquist) was unable to punch through against San Diego starter Robbie Erlin. Heath Bell came in to pitch in the eighth inning and that was all she wrote. By the end of the inning, Bell had surrendered three runs on four hits, two of which were deposited in the seats.
