PHOENIX (AP) — Burly slugger Daniel Vogelbach hobbled home on one leg when Arizona's defense fell asleep, and the Diamondbacks dropped back into a rut with a 5-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.
A day after ending a 17-game losing streak, the Diamondbacks were behind from the start.
Kolten Wong led off with a home run and that was plenty for Freddy Peralta and the Brewers bullpen in a combined two-hitter.
Arizona also lost star outfielder Ketel Marte, who is hitting .366.
He slowed down on his way to second on a ground-rule double in the first inning and exited with tightness in his left hamstring.
Vogelbach hobbled home on a single in the sixth inning when Arizona fielders didn't notice he was injured.
