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 10, 2011: Marlins 6, Diamondbacks 4
The D-backs struggled early against Anibal Sanchez, but managed to put up a four-spot in the seventh inning.
Miguel Montero and Xavier Nady each hit home runs in the inning.
Bryan Shaw made his Major League debut for the D-backs and tossed a scoreless eighth inning.
Joe Saunders didn’t pitch well, but he made a spectacular play defensively and also had a double.
Esmerling Vasquez, like many of the relievers in the bullpen, continued his struggles giving up a run in the seventh inning.
It was especially deflating as Arizona had just cut the Marlins lead to one run in the top of the inning.
Joe Saunders had been pitching well lately, but he struggled on the mound throughout the game.
He quickly gave up two runs in the first inning that put Arizona in a hole right out of the gate.
He ended up surrendering five earned runs in six innings of work.
With the D-backs current struggles to score runs in the last week, Saunders didn’t give the team a chance to gain any momentum in the game.
