D-backs blow another lead in ninth inning this time cannot rally in extra innings

April 15, 2010 by  

Arizona Diamondbacks ace Dan Haren looked back in form tonight after a rough start last outing going 6.1 innings and allowing two runs on two hits, two walks and striking out seven. The D-backs would take a 5-3 lead heading into the last of the ninth when closer Chad Qualls would blow his second save in as many nights. Qualls allowed three hits and two walks which lead to two runs and a tie 5-5 score sending the game into extra innings.

Conner Jackson had his best night in the leadoff spot going 3-for-4 with an RBI and Justin Upton hit his third homer of the season in the eight inning. After Jonathan Broxton shut the D-backs down in order in the top of the tenth, Blaine Boyer could not follow suit in the bottom of the inning for Arizona. Boyer walked a runner and allowed two hits as the Dodger won 6-5.

    Analysts have been saying that the D-backs support staff “looks better” this year. A tough loss against a struggling team but one item of note is that the D-backs nearly won their first series in L.A. since ’07. Also, the team took two months to win three series in 2009.
