Jake Faria got the nod for the Diamondbacks, He actually kept the team in the game through five innings. In fact, thanks to Faria only surrendering two runs in his five innings of work, the Diamondbacks were able to take a 3-2 into the sixth inning. But then, the Arizona bullpen took over. Arizona’s offense just was not able to keep up with the runs haemorrhaged by the bullpen and Arizona dropped the game, despite scoring tacos.
The Diamondbacks took the field at Chase looking to sweep the worst road team in baseball. Unfortunately for the Snakes, that team is still 13.5 games better than them in the standings. The Rockies survived a mid-game push by the Diamondbacks and then took over once the bullpens became involved.
This is the 2021 Arizona Diamondbacks, is anyone shocked that the team let this one get away?
