D-Backs @ Phillies Recap: No Offense, No Victory


Final. 0. 8. 6. 6

It just became another frustrating game on the road for Arizona. Giving Philadelphia its first sweep against the ball club in four seasons. Philadelphia took advantage of lack of hitting and a solid outing by Sean O’Sullivan, shutting out the D-Backs 6-0.

Philadelphia played a complete game all around in route to the victory. Little by little the team put runs on the board and controlled Josh Collmenter who did what he could to help out his cause. Collmenter suffered his fifth loss of the year and has lost back-to-back starts.

The Good:

You have to dig pretty deep to find any good after a game like today. Their bullpen looked decent, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to rally back. Aaron Hill and Yasmany Tomas each went two-for-four. Aside from all that, the team is happy to be leaving Pennsylvania ready to start over.

The Bad:

Yet again their offense was off. They did pick up a hit on eight chances with runners in scoring position, but leaving 10 on base is bad enough. They showed a little life starting off a few innings with a hit here and there, but the rest of the at bats became wastes.

Next Up:

Arizona heads south to take on the struggling Miami Marlins in a four game set. Rubby De La Rosa (4-2, 4.50 ERA) is on the mound against former D-Back Dan Haren (4-2, 3.70 ERA)
