Duke's Night Done, And It Wasn't Pretty

Zach Duke gives way to Micah Owings to start the bottom of the third here in Scottsdale.

Duke’s line: 2 innings, 3 runs all earned, 7 hits, 1 walk.

The good news is that the D-backs are down only 3-2, but could have tied the score if not more had not Kelly Johnson tried to take second on an RBI single and got thrown out by shortstop Miguel Tejada, the cutoff man.

For the D-backs, the starting batting order is Drew, Mora, Johnson, Branyan, Young, Montero, Goldschmidt (DH), Parra and Gillespie. The Giants have Rowand, Sanchez, Huff, Tejada, Ross, DeRosa, Sandoval (DH) Schierholtz and Stewart.

Owings, however, struck out the side after giving up a single to start the inning. That should lower his 108.00 ERA he picked up after allowing 4 earned runs on 3 hits in 1/3 of an inning on Feb. 26.
