Well that was fun. That was sarcastic in case you didn’t know. Instead of avenging their opening series loss, the Diamondbacks stopped their two game winning streak getting defeated in every way losing 6-0 to the Dodgers in front of 33,349 at Chase Field. The Dbacks are now 0-4 against their division rivals and 4-9 on the season. Dbacks starter Brandon McCarthy did go deep into the ball game going 7 innings but he was tagged for 6 runs on 10 hits and now owns an era over 7 and a record of 0-2.
Coming into the game, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez over his career with San Diego, Boston, and Los Angeles lead the majors in HR’s and RBI’s against the Dbacks and he only continued his dominance against the team in the desert on Friday night.
Gonzalez had three hits and drove in 5 including hitting a two run home run to right on the first pitch he saw from McCarthy. He now has 25 HR and 80 career RBI’s against the Snakes in his career. The Dodgers blew things open in the 6th with Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez hit doubles with Ramirez’s scoring Puig.
Meanwhile Dodgers starter Hun Jin Ryu was dominant scattering 2 hits both by Miguel Montero over 7 innings. Ryu now has thrown 19 straight scoreless innings against the Snakes. Manger Kirk Gibson talked about Ryu’s outing with MLB.com: “Their guy, Ryu, pitched a heck of a game,” Gibson said. “He was very, very good. He was better than the first time we saw him. First-pitch strikes, he was pouring them in there, in any count throwing any pitch, stayed out of the middle of the plate, so he made it tough for us to get anything going on him.” The Dbacks will try to win game 2 tonight when Wade Miley toes the rubber.
