After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s
time to go Inside the Box for June 2, 2011: Nationals 6, Diamondbacks 1
The D-backs rally showed signs of life, but sometimes signs are wrong. Despite losing, the D-backs managed seven hits. Gerardo Parra made a bad base running decision in the third but made up for it in the seventh when he brought in Montero for the D-backs’ sole run.
Zach Duke could have been better. The D-backs starter, coming off of a great win in Houston, got his first taste this season of a semi-decent order. Duke gave up 10 hits and four earned runs in his five innings.
Kelly Johnson’s eight-game hit streak came to an end Thursday. The last time he did not have a hit in a game was May 24 against Colorado.
