The Diamondbacks only managed to score in one frame of the game against the Friars, but that frame was good for six runs, more than enough to support Zack Greinke, who was once again dialed in.

The Diamondbacks are replacing one third baseman with some questionable defensive skills but some real pop with another thrid baseman with some questionable defensive skills but a surprising increase in power numbers.
Mike Hazen spoke to the media on Friday after Arizona made the move for the Minnesota infielder.
Joshua Inman gives his hot take on the deal that may define the Diamondbacks for the season.
Righty Franklyn Kilome is headed to the Mets to complete the exchange.
