D-backs righty Matt Koch lost after allowing one run on three hits and three walks with five strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings against the Brewers on Tuesday.
Spin: Koch bounced back from allowing four home runs and eight runs total in his previous start by allowing just two singles through five scoreless innings before Milwaukee reached him for a run in the sixth. The 27-year-old threw 56 of his 91 pitches for strikes and allowed two earned runs or fewer for the sixth time in his last seven starts to improve his ERA to 3.77. He fell to 2-3 on the season, however, as Arizona was shut out. He'll hope for more run support when he makes his next scheduled start against the A's in Oakland on May 27. (více...)

Koch struggles in loss to Brewers

D-backs righty Matt Koch lost after allowing eight runs on nine hits (four homers) and one walk with no strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings vs. the Brewers on Wednesday.
Spin: Koch had allowed nine earned runs in 33 1/3 innings (2.43 ERA) before giving up eight on Wednesday, six of which scored on the four long balls he allowed. He'd given up just five home runs coming into Wednesday's outing, which was his first without a strikeout this year. Koch had been terrific in place of Taijuan Walker with four quality starts in five outings prior leading up to Wednesday's performance, so he'll look to bounce back in a rematch with the Brewers in Milwaukee on May 21.
