Something is different about the Arizona Diamondbacks today versus what we saw the first two nights against the San Francisco Giants on Monday and Tuesday. The Dbacks lost their second game of the series to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3, losing the series and their third consecutive game. Joe Saunders looked less than his best on Saturday night.
So what has changed? Well, for one, the pitching has been missing. The last three starts from Jason Marquis, Josh Collmenter, and Joe Saunders have looked awful. Then, the bullpen hasn’t been much better, save for Micah Owings.
The offense has really sputtered. Tonight they had four almost homers. Almost. However, you can’t rely on those to bring you back. Fact is, they let a pitcher tonight in Nathan Eovardi dominate them in his Major League debut.
Tomorrow is another day, but you are only going to be able to say that for so long. Not much else to highlight from tonight’s game except the Giants keep letting them stay in the race by losing as well. How many more times can the Dbacks get away with losing on the same day as the Giants? My guess? Not many.
