Arizona Diamondbacks Destroyed by Houston Astros at Chase Field
Embarrassing doesn't even begin to describe the Arizona Diamondbacks' 9-1 loss to the Houston Astros last night.
The D-Backs, currently one of the better squads in baseball, got their assess handed to them in grand fashion by the 'Stros, who are presently one of the worst in the bigs.
The only good news from last night, however, is the fact that the Diamondbacks didn't lose any ground in their National League West horse race with San Francisco, as the Giants also lost. Arizona (62-53) remains a half-game back from the Jints, and will attempt to save face tonight and salvage their series with Houston (38-77). Jason Marquis (8-6, 4.33) will take the mound against Astros right-hander Jordan Lyles (1-6, 4.36). First pitch is at 6:40 p.m. TV: Fox Sports Arizona. Radio: KTAR 620-AM.
