Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 8

Bad starting pitching? Or bad hitting? Why not have both!

The wheels truly fell off the Kochmobile this afternoon, as he was tagged for eight earned runs in 4.1 innings. Most of the damage came courtesy of the long-ball, with the Brewers clubbing four home-runs off Matt Koch. But there were a lot of hard-hit balls in general: he allowed nine hits and a walk, not striking out a batter. T.J. McFarland led the mop-up operation with 2.2 scoreless frames, followed by zeroes from Jorge De La Rosa and Andrew Chafin.

The offense was held to two runs, both coming on Daniel Descalso’s first-inning home-run (above), which briefly re-ignited hope, despite Arizona being three runs down already. However, singles by Ketel Marte and Steven Souza, plus an Nick Ahmed triple were the only other hits allowed, as the Great Taco Famine continued at Chase Field - 13 games and counting. This seven-game homestand saw the D-backs score a total of thirteen runs, while batting a cool - make that: ice-cold - .173, going 39-for-226.

Keegan will be along with the recap when he gets back from Chase. If he hasn’t paused to burn the place down...
