“Nelson ran his scoreless streak to 13 innings, having thrown 7 shutout innings in his major league debut. That is the longest scoreless streak to begin a career by a starting pitcher in franchise history. The previous record high of 11 was set by Micah Owings in 2007.”
“The D-backs’ rookie right-hander once again put up a string of zeros in his second big league outing on Monday night, though this time he didn’t come away with a win as the Dodgers scored six times after he left to beat the D-backs, 6-0, at Chase Field.”
“The Diamondbacks lost, 6-0, to the Dodgers, their bullpen once again springing leaks, their offense unusually quiet. But Nelson turned in his second consecutive dominant performance to begin his major league career, firing six scoreless innings while allowing just two hits and two walks and striking out six.”
Shameless Plug Alert!

The start was in Salt Lake City, one of the multiple high-elevation cities in a circuit that typically sees a lot of offensive output — except most times Pfaadt is on the bump.”
