Mike Leake was effective again on Friday versus the Reds, giving up four runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings pitched.
Leake struck out five and walked one as the D'Backs went on to lose 4-3. The oft-dismissed right-hander has now thrown three quality starts in his last four tries. lowering his ERA to 4.59 on the season.
