Diamondbacks' AJ Pollock Diagnosed With Sprained Thumb

He's hitting just.233 in the month of May, but he does have four homers and two doubles in that time frame.

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock was pulled from Monday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers with a sprained left thumb. In four of those six games, the D-backs have scored less than three runs. Zack Greinke went six innings, allowing the one run on four his while striking out five, not factoring in the decision. The Brewers are 7-2 in his starts this season, with five straight wins.

Arizona finished a 1-6 homestand and has lost seven of eight heading into a nine-game trip. Chris Owings is starting in center field and hitting second in his stead. Brad Boxberger tossed a scoreless ninth for his 12th save. This will be Koch's first career start against Milwaukee. But Domingo Santana flew out to right and Jonathan Villar was called out on strikes to end it.

When Pollock's glove hand hit the field, his left wrist rolled up and his glove came off.

Pollock departed last night's game following an ugly-looking arm injury suffered on a diving attempt at a catch.

Daniel Descalso singled home the tiebreaking run with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks broke a six-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday in Phoenix. Descalso walked, took third on Paul Goldschmidt's single and scored when Steven Souza Jr. grounded into a double play. It was good for the final two runs of a three-run insurance rally, which was critical since it meant closer Corey Knebel could rest in the bottom of the ninth in favor of another Brewers reliever, Williams.
