D-backs match MLB record with 22nd straight road loss
After Brandon Crawford’s one-out walk in the first, D-backs catcher Stephen Vogt tried six pickoff attempts at first before Donovan Solano’s swinging strikeout. Jason Vosler followed with an RBI double against Arizona righty Merrill Kelly (2-7) .
Kelly, who entered the game holding opponents to a .235 average over his previous four road starts, was knocked out after three innings.
Former Dodgers first baseman Eric Karros caught the ceremonial first pitch for L.A.’s top rival thrown by Spencer Milken on his birthday. The teen is the grandson of Michael Milken, who works closely with MLB’s Home Run Challenge, and Karros is an ambassador for Milken’s Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Diamondbacks: RHP Taylor Clarke, who went on the injured list Tuesday with a strained muscle in his pitching shoulder, told the team of the discomfort he was experiencing but manager Torey Lovullo remains optimistic about Clarke making a strong comeback. “He’s on the mend, I don’t know what the time frame is,” Lovullo said. “We’re all encouraged about where he is. … We’re going to miss him.”
Giants: RHP John Brebbia, working back from Tommy John surgery, pitched back-to-back days Monday and Tuesday for Triple-A Sacramento at Tacoma and is expected to pitch again Saturday after a few days off. “Everything went according to plan and I think he’s bouncing back well,” manager Gabe Kapler said.
