D-backs fall to Nationals in another walk-off: By The Numbers

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ road trip somehow worsened Wednesday.

For the fourth time in the last nine games, they had to watch another team rollick in walk-off bliss, after Anthony Rendon drove in Bryce Harper to secure the Washington Nationals’ series win and fifth walk-off win in their last six games.

Trevor Cahill again turned in a solid effort, but his team was unable to come to his side with support until the eighth inning when Ender Inciarte’s third home run of the season tied the contest, 2-2.

A ninth-inning rally against D-backs relief pitcher Evan Marshall spoiled both Cahill and Inciarte’s endeavors, however, with the away team recording but one out in the final frame.

Here’s a look at the D-backs’ fifth straight loss, by the numbers:

0

D-backs hitters went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position Wednesday, stranding seven total baserunners.

3

Middle infield duo, Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hill, managed three double plays Wednesday against the Nationals. At the plate, they combined to go 0-for-8.

4

After losing via walk-off to the Cleveland Indians on the road trip-opening game, the D-backs went on to drop their series opener in Miami in the same style to the Marlins, then leaving for Washington where they’ve lost in walk-offs on Monday and then did so again Wednesday.

5

Cahill turned in his fifth consecutive quality start for the D-backs Wednesday, winning two of those.

7

Seven of the D-backs’ last nine games have been decided by one run. They’ve won one two of those contests.

9

Manager Matt Williams led the Nationals to their ninth straight win Wednesday against the D-backs.

20

Cahill threw first-pitch strikes to 20 of the 27 batters he faced Wednesday.

103

Cahill threw 103 pitches Wednesday, making it the fourth consecutive game in which the right-hander has thrown more than 100 pitches. Not before four starts ago, on Aug. 3, had Cahill been able to toss more than 100 pitches in a game.
