azhb_default_articleAfter winning their game on Tuesday, the D-backs played the first game of their double header Tuesday afternoon. Doug Davis pitched against the Marlins’ Chris Volstad. Davis would pitch a little over four innings, striking out six and giving up six earned runs. Volstad would give up four runs of his own in six innings but, would strike out nine.

Chad Tracy and Chris Snyder would have two RBIs a piece as the duo would also hit a home run each in the loss to the Marlins. The game would begin in Florida’s favor with the score at 3-0 until the fifth inning. At the top of the fifth, the Diamondbacks would drive in three runs, only to be countered by four more Marlin runs in the bottom of the inning.

Arizona would put up a valiant effort as they tried to stage a comeback, falling short and losing the first game of the double header by a score of 8-6.

Mark Reynolds would tie a D-backs record in the game with four stolen bases, the most in one game by a Diamondback. Reynolds shares this record with former D-back Tony Womack.
