The pitching has been decent. It's the hitting that is hurting the Diamondbacks. Arizona's starting pitchers did their job in the series. Billy Buckner, Dan Haren and Jon Garland allowed a combined two runs in 19 innings.
It's the offense that has vacated the premises. Since Upton's grand slam Wednesday, the D'backs haven't crossed the plate.
I just hate seeing good pitchers getting losses added to their records when there is absolutely no reason for it.
Way to go guys. Enjoy your day off. I am glad I get a break from you as well. Perhaps the trip south to San Diego will be different.
Young, get your head out of your butt and focus.
