Late error, home runs cost Diamondbacks in loss to Giants

The Diamondbacks lost a game they felt they could have won Friday night, and for manager Torey Lovullo, it came down to execution. 

The execution of getting the third out in the top of the ninth inning of a tie game. The Diamondbacks didn’t do so, the tie-breaking run scored, and Arizona lost 6-5 to the San Francisco Giants at Chase Field.

J.D. Davis had the big two-out, run-scoring hit for the Giants, right after a fielder’s choice ground ball was thrown away by Diamondbacks third baseman Sergio Alcántara for an error to extend the inning. 

“This was one of those games that we’ve got to find a way to make plays and get the job done and execute. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the first inning or the ninth inning,” Lovullo said. “These things keep popping up, and we’ve got to improve. We’ve got to get better. There’s identifiable things that we’ve got to continue to teach and grind through as staff members and then the players just have to execute at a high level.”
