The Diamondbacks looked like a rebuilding team Wednesday night in San Diego, having troubles with nearly every aspect of the game. They go for the series win tonight.

Quick Quotes

"We lost, so I'm not really in too good of a mood right now," Hellickson said. "But it was finally nice to get a little deeper into the game, that's for sure."

-Jeremy Hellickson on his second outing of 2015

"We had some first-pitch outs that weren't hit very well," Hale said. "Guys just get a little too anxious, and that's just the way the game goes. Sometimes, especially with younger hitters, they try a little too hard rather than stepping back. We've got to do a better job as a staff to try to calm them down a little bit. It's our job, my job, so we kind of dropped the ball there tonight."
