Erlin, who was coming off a disastrous start against the Rockies, in which he allowed seven runs on nine hits in just three innings, had a no-hitter until Ender Inciarte tripled with two outs in sixth inning.

It is best to write down the starting rotation for the D-backs in pencil when it comes to the final seven games of the season. Right-hander Zack Godley, who the team previously said had made his final start of the year on Sept. 9 vs. the Giants, will start in place of Jhoulys Chacin on Sunday, with Chacin expected to pitch in relief of Godley. Robbie Ray, Chase Anderson and Patrick Corbin will start against the Rockies in a three-game home series that begins Tuesday night.
