May 23, 2010 by  

After winning the first two games of the series, the Arizona Diamondbacks drop the third and final game of the series against the Toronto Blue Jays at Chase Field. After a couple of solid games by the D-backs, the Blue Jays were able to get the best of Arizona. The D-backs would begin the game with the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning. The run in the first inning would be driven in by Justin Upton on an RBI single scoring Tony Abreu.

Beginning in the third inning of play, the Blue Jays would go on a scoring rampage starting off with two runs in that inning. In the fourth, they would score another run to extend their lead as the D-backs were able to keep the game close with a run of their own at the bottom of that inning. In the following inning, Toronto would score five more runs in a big inning for the team as they begun to pull away from the Diamondbacks. Billy Buckner would be pulled from the game during that inning allowing seven earned runs on the day.

The Blue Jays’ pitching staff would continue to ward off the bats of the D-backs as they were able to keep the damage to a minimum from the home team. The Blue Jays, however, were not done. With three more runs in the sixth inning and one more in the seventh. With a nine run deficit the D-backs would go into the bottom of the ninth will a ton of catching up to do. Chris Young, who has had a spectacular season in comparison to his last, would hit a solo homer to left field to give Arizona one run in that inning.

The D-backs were unable to get anything going for the remainder of the game and lose to the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of twelve to four. The D-backs hit the road to face the Rockies on Tuesday and will be sending Ian Kennedy to the mound for game one of three game series in Colorado.
