Wade Miley Shines, Diamondbacks Blank Royals 2-0 To Win Series

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley was spectacular again as the team ended their road trip and interleague series against the Kansas City Royals. He pitched another seven scoreless innings, allowing only six hits and the Arizona Diamondbacks blanked the Royals 2-0.

In the fifth inning, Paul Goldschmidt doubled to lead off the inning. Aaron Hill singled, but Goldschmidt held at third. Then John McDonald executed a squeeze bunt that scored the run.

They added on a run in the eighth when Gerardo Parra walked, was sacrificed to second, took third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly by Justin Upton.

David Hernandez struck out the side in the eighth and J.J. Putz set down KC in order in the ninth to lock down the win and record his ninth save on the year.

Miley improved to 5-1 on the year, as Arizona won a series for the first time since April when they took three of four from the Miami Marlins.

They return home for a homestand on Monday.
