Diamondbacks 0, Phillies 6

A poor series ended in an even more depressing way, as the D-backs were shut out by the Phillies.

Josh Collmenter was, I guess, a little better than his last outing, and at least he saved the pen somewhat. throwing six innings this time. He gave up four runs on six hits and two walks, with just the one strikeout. Randall Delgado took 56 pitches to get the next five outs, being charged with Philadelphia's last two runs, on four hits and two walks, J.C. Ramirez got the final out.

The offense... Didn't show up, being held to six hits through eight innings, all of them singles. Aaron Hill and Yasmany Tomas had two each. The Diamondbacks had some chances, e.g. two on with no outs in the second inning, but failed miserably to make anything of then. I pity poor Meg, who signed up to guest-recap this one. If she's now deleting her SnakePit account with fire, I wouldn't blame her!

Arizona head down to Florida, where they take on the Marlins in a four-game set. Miami just cleaned house, firing manager Mike Redmond, so we've got to do better there. It can hardly go worse than this series, at least.
