Arizona loses another series

April 25, 2009 by  

azhb_default_articleFor the fifth time in six series this season the Diamondbacks will end the series with a series loss. The San Francisco Giants won the first two games of this series ensuring the series loss for the home team. The D-backs had a very favorable schedule in April with two long homestands, but so far they are only 6-11 this month.

D-backs starter Max Scherzer got his first hit today, a double, but has yet to record a win in the majors. Scherzer looked solid through four innings, but was unable to seal the deal and ran into trouble in the fifth inning. Scherzer lasted 4.2 innings allowing five hits and four runs. Scherzer seemed to tire in the fifth inning in which all four of Scherzer’s allowed runs were scored.

Randy Johnson got his second start ever against Arizona and held the D-backs scoreless through the first three innings. In the fourth Arizona was finally able to get things going against RJ scoring two runs off Johnson and chasing him from the game. Justin Upton was the first to get to Johnson when he hit a two-run homer off RJ in the fourth for his first home run of the season. Today also happened to be Justin Upton bobble head night at Chase field. The other run for the Diamondbacks was scored on Eric Byrnes’ third homerun of the season in the fifth inning.

Some positive news came from Diamondbacks bullpen as they went 4.1 innings allowing only three hits and one run to score. Even Jon Rauch managed to pitch a perfect seventh inning.

To add more bad news today we learned that Brandon Webb will be out at least six weeks and Stephen Drew was added to the DL today.
