Diamondbacks 0, Dodgers 6

Ouch. The beatings will continue until morale improves. The third straight loss against Los Angeles was the heaviest to date, as bad McCarthy showed up ahead of schedule, and Hyun-Jin Ryu no-hit everyone except Miguel Montero.

Brandon McCarthy's third start was somewhat different to his first two, in that he struggled early, then settled down, at one point retiring ten Dodgers in a row. Unfortunately, that came after we were already four runs down. The Dodgers jumped out in the first inning, courtesy of a two-run homer from Adrian Gonzalez, and he doubled his RBI tally for the night in the third with a two-run single. With the bullpen wheezing, McCarthy did suck it up and took one for the team, ending the night in the eighth with a line of ten hits, a walk and six runs allowed.

The Diamondbacks just didn't have an answer for Hyun-Jin Ryu, who baffled them as effectively as he had the first time they met, in Australia. Miguel Montero's two singles were the only hits the team managed, and a walk by A.J. Pollock was the sole other runner to reach base for the Diamondbacks during Ryu's seven innings. Pollock got his second walk from the lead-off spot to start the ninth inning, but that went nowhere, and a Paul Goldschmidt double-play ended the game, and Goldie's streak of reaching base at 31 games, the fourth-best in team history.

We'll hope for better in every department tomorrow, when Wade Miley takes on Zack Greinke.
