The D-backs can muster nothing and Collmenter improves.

The Arizona Diamondbacks could not muster much offense again and lost their first game of the season by more than one run, falling 10-2 to the Atlanta Braves behind three hits, two homers and five RBI by Freddie Freeman.

Collmenter had a rocky start to the game, walking a batter and allowing a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman. He locked things down after that, retiring at one point before the sixth inning eight in a row and 12 of 14 batters. However in the sixth inning he allowed two unlucky singles and was pulled.

Wade Miley came in and did not stop anything. Three runs scored in the inning.

Miley also gave up a second Freddie Freeman two-run homer. They would go on to score three more runs.

For Arizona, they scored their runs on an RBI groundout by Collmenter and a sacrifice fly by A.J. Pollock, which was his first career RBI.

Mike Minor pitched eight inning for the win. Collmenter took the loss.
