D-backs unable to rally

May 29, 2009 by

After falling behind the Atlanta Braves 10-1 the D-backs tried to fight back but the hole was to big.

Arizona was able to score three runs in the fourth inning with a home run by Chad Tracy. Gerardo Parra also had a good game going 3-for-5 with two runs batted in. Para is now 11-15 with RISP after he knocked in Miguel Montero from second on a single in the 7th making it 10-6. Despite playing in only 13 games for the D-backs this year, only Mark Reynolds has more hits this season with runners in scoring position than Para.

Daniel Schlereth, who was the first pick by the D-backs in last year’s draft, made his major league debut tonight and set down the side in order in the 6th inning.
