The Dodgers had yesterday off after getting thrashed by the Oakland A’s the other day. The Dodgers Kryptonite came to town in the form of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers put Kenta Maeda on the mound and he always seems to struggle against the snakes. Actually the whole team seems to struggle against the snakes. Former Dodger Zack Greinke would also be on the mound. It seems to me the Dodgers really miss the Red Turn. The Dodgers would go on to lose their 10th straight regular season game to Arizona.

In the bottom of the inning, Chris Taylor hit the first pitch from Zack Greinke for a homer to to tie the score 1-1. Maeda would have a horrible third inning. Greinke started with a walk. David Peralta then singled. Marte then hit a routine double play ball but Maeda made a throwing error and everyone was safe.
Greinke scored on a wild pitch. Peralta then scored on another wild pitch. Daniel Decalso then hit a sacrifice fly for another run. Chris Owings then doubled. Jarrod Dyson then doubled him in for another run ending Maeda’s night. The score was 5-1. In the bottom of the 6th, Cody Bellinger hit a solo shot to make the score 5-2. In the top of the 7th, Descalso hit a two run shot off Tony Cingrani to make the score 7-2.
#Dodgers lose, 8-7. Bad news: another loss. Good news: They showed some fight.

Chase Utley hit a luck single that hit the second base bag, which would’ve been a double play. Grandal and Puig would score to make the score 8-7.
