Ray effectively wild in D-backs win over Giants

PHOENIX (AP) — Save for a 48-game stint as interim manager of the Boston Red Sox in 2015, Torey Lovullo is new to the job.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks were victimized by a porous defense in their latest loss.
Two errors and some hits that went off the gloves of fielders cost the Diamondbacks after building a three-run lead in a 14-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
"We just didn't play a really good ballgame today" Arizona manager Chip Hale said. "Patrick Corbin pitched very well. We cost him a bunch of pitches with errors."
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell understands errors happen. Baserunning blunders shouldn't.
Archie Bradley pitched seven solid innings, Yasmany Tomas hit two home runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Brewers 8-1 on Wednesday night.
The Brewers looked like they had something going in the first.
