What a wet fart of an ending for an awful 3 game sweep at the hands of the Marlins.
6 straight losses. It's hard to find the silver lining with all that losing, and although I'm not saying it's time to give up, it's certainly getting to be a drag.
Robbie Ray didn't have too bad of a game, though it was shortened with an elevated pitch count after 5.1 innings. He struck out 5 and gave up 6 hits, while also allowing 2 runs to score.
The Marlins scored their first run in the 3rd inning. Giancarlo Stanton walked to lead off the inning, and was brought home with a sacrifice fly and a Derek Dietrich single. Miami would slowly grow their lead from there, getting another run in the 4th and 2 in the 8th.
The Diamondbacks just simply had no response, even after Miami's starter, Adam Conley, also left the game after only 5.1 innings. The team only managed 3 hits for the game and a walk for the game, spending a lot of at-bats looking listless. Look, I want to get to a Cinco de Mayo party, too, but I at least tried hard to pretend I was working today.
What, though, is there really to say about a shitty game like this? The D-backs are scuffling, and need to figure it out fast. The season certainly isn't over after being 6 games under .500 at the beginning of May, but they haven't given me any reason to hope yet, either.
Dos Equis: Zac Curtis (4.5%)
