Arizona Diamondbacks: The Misery Continues

Scott McLaurinContributor IJune 4, 2009

The Arizona Diamondbacks' struggles continued as they ended their series with the Los Angeles Dodgers losing last night, 1-0, ending the series.

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.
