The Diamondbacks have now lost three in a row as they could not get anything going offensively in their second game of a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox.
After a Ketel Marte solo homerun in the first inning, the Diamondbacks offense fell completely silent, racking up just one more hit the rest of the game.
A remarkable 25 of the last 26 Diamondbacks’ batters were retired following a small spark in the first inning.
From the fourth inning on, both bullpens locked in, preventing any further scoring. It was a rare low-scoring affair between two of the best offenses in baseball.
Now, the Red Sox have a chance to complete the sweep, something no team has done against the Diamondbacks all year.
It will be Merrill Kelly on the mound for the D-backs, first pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM.
