Diamondbacks’ offense goes quiet, causing 6-1 loss to Rays


After a bullpen collapse yesterday, the Diamondbacks came out flat for the series finale and fell 6-1 to the Rays.

Brandon Pfaadt got the start for Arizona; it was his first time on the mound in over a month.

Unfortunately for the rookie, his first start back was against one of the best offenses in baseball. Pfaadt only made it through two innings as he allowed six earned runs on seven hits and two walks.

While the D-backs’ bullpen was able to limit any further damage by combining for seven shutout innings, six runs was plenty for the Rays to grab the series win.

The Diamondbacks lone run came from a Lourdes Gurriel Jr. solo shot in the 7th inning. It was just his third home run in June after a red-hot May. 

However, this is not to say Arizona did not have their chances to get more runs on the board. The Diamondbacks stranded a leadoff double in the 2nd and 3rd innings.

Not to mention, the 9th inning began with a walk and a base hit, but neither baserunner scored.

Next up for the Diamondbacks is a three-game series starting on Friday against the Angels. Tommy Henry will take the mound tomorrow night at 6:40 PM with hopes of getting Arizona back on track.
