Robbie Ray had another strong outing, but received no run support as the Diamondbacks dropped their eighth in a row at Chavez Ravine.
Looking to bolster the depth of starting pitching in the system, the Diamondbacks selected excellent command and control pitcher, Taylor Clarke with the 76th overall pick.
Paul Goldschmidt has erased Adrian Gonzalez's commanding early lead, and now leads all NL first basemen in the popular all-star vote.

David Hernandez is a subject of Benson's new Faces series.
