The Arizona Diamondbacks wrapped up their season-long series with the Los Angeles Dodgers, going 4-15 in 19 games against their National League West rival.
The D-backs’ woes against the division-leading Dodgers this season began, of course, in another hemisphere — in Sydney, Australia, where they kicked off the 2014 Major League Baseball season with a pair of games at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
