  • D-backs ding thrice, but McFarland struggles

  • D-backs option Shipley after relief appearance

  • Greinke's rough start leads to roster moves
    This was the kind of game in which Zack Greinke has excelled in all year -- delivering a win following a D-backs loss and working deep into a game when the bullpen needs a break. In Saturday night's 5-0 loss to the Twins at Target Field, though, Greinke did neither.

  • Corbin 1 out shy of CG as D-backs blank Astros
    After the D-backs allowed nine runs to the Astros in consecutive games, left-hander Patrick Corbin restored order Thursday afternoon at Minute Maid Park.
