    D-backs score the first run. But, as Steve said, one run
    on a double-play with the bases loaded is the way the
    season is going. Not maximizing opportunities.

    And Torey is ejected for arguing balls and strikes.

    Meanwhile, MadBum is pitching the best he has in quite
    a while.

    Ahmed with a solo HR makes it 2-0.

    MadBum is pitching a 2-hit shutout after 5.

    He has retired 9 straight and 14 of the last 15.

    Five innings will be it.

    Springer with an inside-the-park home run in the 6th off Widener. 2-1 D-backs.

    And he walks the tying run with one out.

    It looks shaky whether MadBum will get his first win of the season.

    Yoan López comes in to pitch with the bases loaded and two outs.

    And a strikeout leaves them loaded.

    Springer with another HR -- this one outside the park --
    and the Astros tie the game in the 7th.

    And, yup, MadBum is still without a victory this season,
    even without giving up a run in the game.

    Our reliever Guerra starts the bottom of the 8th
    with a hit batsman and a walk. And another walk.

    Bases loaded with one out. Make them earn it, damnit!

    Almost hits the next hitter.

    A sac fly makes it 3-2 Astros. And Walker drops the
    relay. Runners advance. 2nd & 3rd with two outs.

    Guerra gets the strike call on an outside pitch, then
    a strikeout to strand the runners in scoring position.

    Calhoun takes ball four, but it's called a strike and he
    flies out to start the top of the ninth.

    Then Escobar strikes out. Peralta grounds out.

    The D-backs snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
