Second game in a row D-backs unable to hold onto late lead

May 2, 2010 by  

For the second game in a row the Arizona Diamondbacks were unable to hold onto a lead late against the Chicago Cubs. Dan Haren started the game for the D-backs and while not his sharpest, Haren pitched well enough to win and left the game after six innings with a 5-3 lead.

Bob Howry who pitched well in his last two outings allowed two runs on two hits including a two-run home run to Alfonso Soriano with two out in the seventh. Howry has now allowed at least two runs to score in 4 of his ten outings this year.

Juan Gutierrez would take to the mound in the eighth inning with a 5-5 tie and would allow two more runs to score. In his last seven innings Gutierrez has allowed eight earned runs.

Justin Upton knocked in two of the D-backs five runs including hitting his fourth homer of the year and Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a walk and two solo home runs giving him a tie for the NL lead with teammate Kelly Johnson.

After starting out 3-1 on the current road trip the D-backs have now fallen to 3-3 with one more game tomorrow against the Cubs.
