D-backs Offense Quiet, Lose 1-4

By Nicholas Valenzuela

The Arizona Diamondbacks (39-43) were not able to produce any offense against Nate Eovaldi and the Los Angeles Dodgers (47-37) in a 4-1 loss Thursday evening.

Los Angeles was able to strike first in the top of the first inning when Juan Rivera doubled to deep left field, scoring Mark Ellis,  and putting the Dodgers up 1-0. They would add another run later in the inning when Luis Cruz singled to right field, plating Jerry Hairston Jr., and extending the lead 2-0.

Arizona would get on the board in the bottom of the second inning when Stephen Drew singled to right field, scoring Paul Goldschmidt, and cutting the lead 2-1.

The Dodgers would add another run in the top of the fourth inning when Scott Van Slyke hit a solo home run to left field. They would add another run in the top of the seventh with a solo home run by Elian Herrera.

The Arizona offense was unable to produce any momentum all night, compiling only five hits and one run all game. Wade Miley  pitched 6 2/3 strong innings, but was not provided with any run support by his teammates.

Eovaldi would go six strong innings, allowing only five hits and a run in the winning effort.

With the loss, Arizona has dropped their sixth straight game, and the fourth straight on this homestand. Josh Collmenter  will take the mound tomorrow for the D-backs.
