RHP Merrill Kelly earned the win on Saturday when he allowed two runs on five hits with six strikeouts and one walk over six innings as the D-Backs took down the Cubs 7-3.
Kelly did his job on Saturday, limiting the Cubs to just two runs over his six innings of work. Javier Baez grounded into a double play that scored a run in the third inning and Willson Contreras swatted a solo homer off of him in the fourth. He also punched out six batters for the second consecutive start. The 32-year-old owns a 7-7 record, 4.39 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 105:28 K/BB ratio over 123 innings (21 starts). Kelly has been drawing trade interest so there's a chance that this could have been his last start in a Diamondbacks uniform. If not, he'll face the Dodgers at home in his next turn.
