Diamondbacks 0, Giants 7

Shelby Miller’s second start didn’t go much better than his first.

On the plus side, Shelby Miller did get up to 96 pitches in his second appearance since returning from Tommy John surgery. That’s about where the good news ended, as he allowed six runs over five innings, on nine hits and a walk. The problem was a four-run third inning, sandwiched by solo home-runs in the second and fourth, as Miller struggled to locate any of his secondary pitches. This allowed the Giants to tee off on his fastball, and they did so with enthusiasm.

However, you won’t win many games scoring zero runs. The Diamondbacks offense struggled for the second night in a row, and weren’t helped by a couple of brutal base-running errors by Jake Lamb and Ketel Marte. Making matters worse, Marte had to leave the game after legging out an infield single, with what appeared to be a hamstring issue. A DL stint seems almost inevitable. On the plus side, T.J. McFarland tossed a pair of scoreless innings, though Jimmie Sherfy allowed his first regular-season run, allowing a solo homer in the eighth. David Peralta and Marte each had a pair of hits.
