Arizona Diamondbacks Get Swept by Chicago Cubs in 8-3 Loss
Edwin Jackson: His first loss since no-hitting the Tigers.
All good things must come up to an end, including the Arizona Diamondbacks' dominance over the Chicago Cubs at Chase Field. With their 8-3 loss Wednesday night, the D-Backs lost their first home series to the Cubs since 2003 and were swept at home by the Cubs for the first time in 16 all-time series.
Meanwhile, the D-Backs offense continues to swing and miss at pitched balls at a historic rate. The D-Backs struck out 10 times, including six against Cubs starting pitcher Ryan Dempster, to raise their season total to 793, far and away the worst total in the majors.
