The Diamondbacks closed in on that #1 pick, moving into a virtual tie with the Rangers are a result of their fourth straight loss.

Trevor Cahill didn't walk anyone, but was still burned by a mix of BABIP and the long-ball. He scattered ten hits over five innings, and struck out eight, but two home-runs helped lead to Colorado scoring five times off Cahill, and his record sunk to 3-12. Probably the most interesting thing about this game came in the seventh, when Oliver Perez struck out all four batters faced. Yes: four, courtesy of a dropped third strike. It was the first four-K inning in team history, and on the day, the Diamondbacks pitchers ended with a K:BB ratio of 16:0 over eight innings of work. Their xFIP for the day must have been wonderful...

Unfortunately, the offense didn't seem to realize they were playing at Coors, with the only productive element being Jake Lamb's fourth home-run of the season. Miguel Montero did get three hits, but the Diamondbacks were particularly crap in the clutch, going 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position, We now sit and wait for the result of the Rangers-Angels game tonight, to see if we take sole possession of the worst record in the major leagues. My excitement and sense of anticipation is palpable.
