Josh Collmenter made the Arizona Diamondbacks look a lot better than they did Tuesday night, when Wade Miley and company lost 12-2 to the Kansas City Royals, but his offense could hardly say as much.

Though collecting 12 hits, as compared with the Royals' five, the D-backs struggled to drive in runs against right-hander Yordano Ventura and the Kansas City bullpen. The Royals won 4-3.

Collmenter fared well against most of the Royals lineup, but it was Mike Moustakas who provided enough trouble to overcome the D-backs, driving in all four of his team's runs while going 2-for-4 with a two-run home run from the seven hole.

The D-backs put together rallies in the eighth and ninth innings, but came up empty-handed in the former and logged just a run in the latter, leaving two men on in both frames.

And that was the story of the night for the team, as they were just 2-for-14 with men on base, scoring their three runs on RBI singles by Aaron Hill and David Peralta and a sacrifice fly by Mark Trumbo.

Here's a look at the loss, by the numbers:


2

D-backs hitters struck out 11 times Wednesday, the night after they struck out 10 times. As a team, they have recorded double-digit strikeout games at the plate 23 times this season, with their season-high coming on April 20, when they struck out 14 times against Josh Beckett and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
