For once, it was the starting pitching which was likely the main cause, as Zack Godley had, far and away, his worst start of the season. He allowed more runs (four) in the fourth, than in any previous game, with a three-run homer off the bat of Matt Kemp the biggest blow. Though Zack did suck it up and work six innings to save the bullpen from being overly taxed. Godley was charged with seven runs, one of them unearned, on eight hits and one walk, with nine strikeouts.

The offense didn’t exactly help, managing only one run on just four hits. Paul Goldschmidt had two of those, as well as one of Arizona’s three walks, and drove in the game’s sole run for us, with a single in the fourth. But the Diamondbacks were already six down by that point, and never looked very likely to come back into it. T.J. McFarland tossed a couple of scoreless innings in relief.
