"It’s notable that the Diamondbacks are 5-37 in their last 42 games, which encompasses the current 23-game road losing streak, but they haven’t played quite that poorly. The 1-11 mark in one-run games during that stretch is making them look worse than they are. They’re a true-talent 78-win team that's had its lack of depth exposed with an enormous number of pitching injuries all at once."
