Diamondbacks 0, Giants 5: Sunday blanking

New, 3 comments

There would be no fourth consecutive win over San Francisco today in Scottsdale. Instead, the Diamondbacks were shutout on Sunday, for the first time in 2015.

Cactus League record: 7-6-1.

The offense just wasn't into it today. They managed eight hits, all singles, and three walks, but went hitless in six chances with runners in scoring position. Perhaps their best chance was in the top of the second inning, where they loaded the bases with one out, chasing Giants' starter Tim Hudson. Unfortunately, the pitcher's spot was up, and after a failed safety squeeze, Archie Bradley struck out, and Ender Inciarte went down at the first pitch. Inciarte did reach base three times, on a hit and two walks, while there were two hits apiece for Cody Ross and Yasmany Tomas. Nick Ahmed had a hit and a walk.

Archie Bradley started for the D-backs, and I'll defer to shoe's assessment in the GDT comments, since he could see the game, and I couldn't! He said, "Good outing for him so far. Spotting his FB, commanding it well. Most around 92-93. Not really doing much with his off speed offerings, but just enough to keep guys off his FB.  Curve and Change still need work." He went three innings, scattering six hits and allowing two earned runs, but walking none, and striking out a pair. There were scoreless innings from Andrew Chafin, Oliver Perez and Evan Marshall, before the B-pitchers of J.C. Ramirez and Seth Simmons allowed three runs over the seventh and eighth.

Meh. It's back to Salt River Fields for the game tomorrow afternoon against the White Sox. Randall Delgado, who looked very good the last time out, will start for the Diamondbacks.
