Game #148: Diamondbacks vs. Padres

The Diamondbacks ' current seven-game losing run is tied for sixth all-time, and is the only one in the top 12 where we averaged less than two runs a game over the streak. We had an eight-game streak in 1998, a ten-game one in 2010, and no less than three longer streaks in 2004, lasting nine, eleven and fourteen games.

Game #142: Diamondbacks @ Dodgers

The silence of the bats continues for Arizona, who have yet to hit a home-run on this road-trip. If the Diamondbacks don't hit a home-run tonight, the six-game homerless streak will be tied for the second-longest in franchise history, trailing only an 8-game run in July 2002.
