Jeremy Hellickson, Chris Owings Lead Arizona Diamondbacks past Milwaukee Brewers 3-0
PHOENIX (AP) — Jeremy Hellickson threw six strong innings, Chris Owings drove in two runs with a pinch-hit, two-out double and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Milwaukee 3-0 on Sunday to take three of four from the suddenly punchless Brewers, shut out in consecutive games for the first time this season.
Jake Lamb tripled, doubled, drove in a run and scored another for the Diamondbacks, who put a successful finish to an otherwise disappointing 4-6 homestand.
After scoring 27 runs in the four games before coming to Arizona, the Brewers managed just five in four against the Diamondbacks. Arizona won Saturday 2-0 behind right-hander Rubby De La Rosa.
Hellickson (7-6) allowed four hits, struck out six, walked three and hit a batter. Relievers Andrew Chafin and David Hernandez threw a perfect inning apiece before Brad Ziegler completed the shutout for his 17th save, the last 15 in a row.
