The Diamondbacks were involved in their fifth consecutive one-run game this afternoon, coming up short against the Marlins.

No real fault to Wade Miley, who worked seven innings and allowed one earned run on only four hits and a walk, with nine strikeouts. He managed to escape damage in an earlier inning, where Arizona committed three errors without conceding a run, but an RBI triple in the fourth allowed the Marlins to tie up the game. More errors, by Mark Trumbo and Cliff Pennington, in the seventh, then allowed an unearned run to cross the plate for Miami. Arizona's five total E's, left them one off the team record set against the Dodgers in July 2010.

The Arizona offense continued its struggles of late, as detailed in the preview (whaddya mean, you didn't read it? Sheesh. You people...). We managed six hits, including two by Inciarte, who extended his best-ever rookie hitting streak by a Diamondbacks to 16 games. Pennington also reached twice, on a hit and a walk. But we were also somewhat screwed over, losing a run at home-plate, even though the Marlins catcher was clearly set up between Inciarte and the dish before getting the ball. We did score a run later that inning, on a #TrumbSacFly - and it's hard to complain about riles being an issue when you make five errors.

Turambar will be along shortly with the beercap. Unless he drank every time we made a gaffe, in which case, he's in hospital, having his stomach pumped. :)
