The lack of hits we had after Pollock's grand-slam last night continued this evening, and a good start by Jeremy Hellickson was to no avail.

Jeremy Hellickson gave the Diamondbacks six innings of one-run ball, scattering four hits and two walks with five strikeouts, in a very decent outing. The only run that scored against him came on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning, with a fast runner on third-base just able to get home before the throw home from Ender Inciarte - the play withstood an appeal from Chip Hale. After a scoreless inning from Matt Reynlolds and David Hernandez, Josh Collmenter allowed San Diego to pad their lead in the eighth, allowing two runs on three hits, before Silvino Bracho came in and stranded a runner on third, he had inherited with one out.

The offense basically didn't show up. The Diamondbacks extended their hitless streak to 13.1 innings, before Inciarte tripled down the left-field line with two outs in the sixth inning. The second hit we got off San Diego starter Robbie Erlin, was erased on a double-play ball, and the only other time we got a runner in scoring position was a double by Chris Owings in the eighth, also with two out. Aaron Hill singled with one out in the ninth to give a semblance of hope, but he was stranded there, and the Diamondbacks were shut out.
