Diamondbacks 3, Rockies 8

The Diamondbacks were swept out of Coors Field and are now, officially, the worst team in the major-leagues.

Doug Pensinger

Wade Miley just didn't have it today. He lasted only 4.1 innings, giving up eight hits and four walks, and a total of six runs, all earned. One of those came in the second, followed by two in the third, and it didn't seem likely we would be able to come back from that. He wasn't helped by Randall Delgado allowing two of the three runners he inherited to score. Matt Stites gave up two runs in the seventh inning, though Eury de la Rosa followed up on his fellow LOOGY's four-K inning yesterday, with a three-K one of his own in the eighth.

On the offensive side, Mark Trumbo did all the damage with his 10th and 11th home-runs, for his first multi-homer game as a Diamonback [hey, Rockies! Wanna trade?]. He had a two-run shot in the sixth, and followed that up with a solo blast in the ninth. But that all, with nobody else reaching base more than once, as the Diamondbacks lost their sixth straight contest. Combined with the Rangers' beating of the Angels, which just concluded, our record of 62-94 is now the worst by any team in the major leagues, one-half game below the Rangers at 62-93. A hundred losses is still doable, folks.

Rockkstarr12 will be along with the full recap in a bit, once the Cardinals game is out of the way.
