D-backs extend losing streak to four

May 27, 2010 by  

The Arizona Diamondbacks were trying to snap a three game losing streak when they sent Dan Haren to the mound against the Colorado Rockies. A win would also mean the D-backs only lost one game to the Rockies and not three games during the series of games. Instead Dan Haren allowed four homes and the D-backs recorded their fourth loss in a row after winning four in a row.

Dan Haren is having anything but his typical start to the season. With this loss he has slipped to 5-4 with a 5.35 ERA and has allowed 16 home runs in 11 games. Ten in his last three games.

The D-backs have now allowed 82 homers on the season, compare that to the 31 the Rockies have allowed. The worst came in the seventh inning as Haren allowed back-to-back-to-back homers.

The offense also continued to struggle scoring only two runs in the game. Both runs came in the sixth inning on RBIs by Chris Young and Chris Snyder. Stephen Drew continues to be the most consistent bat going 2-for-3 on the day with a walk and is now hitting .310.

The D-backs home to right the course tomorrow as they head to San Francisco.
