Another stellar outing for D-backs starter, another loss

Davis had  stellar outing today going seven innings against the Cincinnati Reds and allowing only one run. Davis left with a 2-1 lead and at the end had lowered his ERA to an impressive 3.15. Unfortunately Davis’ outing was not enough, but his value on the trade market may never be higher than it is today.

Arizona jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the second inning when Gerardo Parra reached base then stole second. Parra moved to third base on a ground out and with two outs Chad Tracy delivered a hit to left field and scored Parra. Mark Reynolds would add another run in the sixth inning with his 22nd homer of the year. On the day Arizona would have only four hits off the Reds staff.

Leading by a 2-1 score in the eight inning Arizona brought in reliever Chad Qualls with 2 outs and 2 men on and Qualls delivered with a big out. In the 9th Qualls did not have as much luck and scored one run to tie it up. In the 10th inning the Reds would get to Clay Zavada and score the winning run.

The Diamondbacks now head to Colorado for a weekend series against the Rockies.
