D-backs Lose Series Finale To Brewers In Wild Ninth Inning

Losing on a walk-off in baseball is never fun. Losing on a walk-off without giving up a hit is bad.

Losing on a walk-off without giving up a hit in the inning and committing two throwing errors on the final play is the worst.

Despite a late home run from Jason Kubel to tie the game at 1-1, the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Brewers 2-1 on what was truly a bizarre ninth inning.

Patrick Corbin entered the bottom of the ninth and walked Aramis Ramirez to start things off, which is never a good sign. Ramirez was replaced by Carlos Gomez as a pinch runner, who is a big threat to steal a base. Corbin faced Rickie Weeks next while continually throwing over to first base to keep Gomez close, but that did not stop him from running on a 2-1 count.

Miguel Montero fired the ball down to second, but it went to the right of the bag and rolled into center field. Gerardo Parra fielded the ball and tossed it back towards third base with hopes to get Gomez out. The ball then ricocheted away from the bag and bounced into the seats above the third base dugout, advancing Gomez all the way around to the plate.

Just like that, the Brewers had won.

Lost in all the madness was a fine start from Josh Collmenter, who threw six innings of one-run ball. He allowed just three hits and did not walk a batter, striking out five in the process. His emergence in the rotation would be huge for the club as Daniel Hudson misses the rest of the season.

Aaron Hill Hits For Cycle In Diamondbacks 9-3 Victory Over Brewers

Aaron Hill accomplished something on Saturday night that had not been accomplished since Herbert Hoover was in the oval office. Hill hit for the cycle for the second time this season in the Diamondbacks 9-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Hill doubled in the second inning, singled in the third, hit a two-run home run in the fourth, and hit an RBI triple in the sixth. In total, Hill finished the game 4-5 with three RBI's.

Overshadowed by Hill's performance was first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who was a triple away from the cycle himself and finished the game 4-4 with three RBI's. Goldschmidt has raised his season batting average to .299.

Hill and Goldschmidt combined to go 8-9 with two home runs and six RBI's on Friday night.

Milwaukee got on the board early as the Brewers put a run up in the first inning. The Brewers started the game with back to back singles by Norichika Aoki and Nyjer Morgan. Aoki advanced to third on a fly-out from Ryan Braun, and scored when the next batter, Aramis Ramirez, grounded out to third.

The Diamondbacks responded in the second inning with a run of their won. Paul Goldschmidt doubled to right field to start off the inning, and with two outs, Henry Blanco poked a 3-2 breaking ball into right field for an RBI double.

The ball landed right on the right field foul line and bounced into the seats along the first base line for a ground-rule double. It was only the third RBI of the season for Blanco.

The Diamondbacks broke the game open with five-run third inning. Justin Upton and Jason Kubel had back to back RBI singles before Paul Goldschmidt blasted a three-run home run to make it 6-1 Diamondbacks.

Ian Kennedy (6-7) delivered an excellent start for Arizona as the right-hander went seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits ans striking out seven. Only one of the three runs given up by Kennedy was earned.

Brad Ziegler and Mike Zagurski both pitched scoreless innings in relief to seal the victory for Arizona. The Diamondbacks improve to 2-2 on this road trip and will send Wade Miley to the mound tomorrow.
