Arizona Diamondbacks Take Two of Three from Toronto Blue Jays
Despite a rough 12-4 blowout on Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Arizona Diamondbacks wrapped up their most impressive week of the 2010 season, winning two of the three against the slugging Jays and five out of their past seven. And what do you know? The bullpen got opposing hitters out and the D-Backs offense showed signs of life, scoring eight runs in each of the D-Backs wins this weekend.
Sunday's starter, Billy Buckner, didn't fare as well, as the Jays, one of the best-hitting teams in the American League, broke the game open early, knocking Buckner around for seven earned runs in just four innings. The Blue Jays ended up with 17 hits in a 12-4 blowout. Every D-Back starter except slumping catcher Chris Snyder tallied a hit, but the offense failed to mount a significant threat against Jays starter Shawn Marcum, who struck out eight D-Backs in five innings of work.
