Davis Gives Up Two Homers in D-backs Loss

April 13, 2009 by  


Arizona pitcher Doug Davis went eight long innings as the D-backs lose to the Cardinals by a score of 2 to 1. Despite the disappointment for this game, there is not a whole lot to be ashamed of given the Cardinals’ record thus far this season. The St. Louis Cardinals came into Chase Field with only two losses and on a four game winning streak which has extended to five games after tonight.

Although getting runners to score was a problem, the D-backs managed to gather three doubles during the game. A close matchup against a hot team is better than a blowout by a poor one. First baseman Chad Tracy hit in the only RBI for the D-backs as the batters for the Cardinals forged ahead with a couple of home runs that would prove to beat the D-backs in more ways than one.

Without much surprise was a home run by Albert Pujols but, adding insult to injury was a one run blast by a former player in the Arizona organization Brian Barden. Barden played eight games for the Diamondbacks in 2007 and has not really boasted spectacular numbers. Brian hit his homer late enough in the game where it would end up being the nail in the coffin for the D-backs.

Tomorrow, righties Chris Carpenter and Max Scherzer square off for the second game of the series.
