--3B Mark Reynolds' throwing error on Milwaukee 2B Rickie Weeks' grounder in the sixth inning snapped the D-backs' streak of errorless games at eight, and was their first error in 86 innings, since 1B Conor Jackson bobbled a grounder April 21. Reynolds has three errors this season after leading the major leagues with 35 last season, 34 at third base.

--1B Conor Jackson bobbled a grounder in the third inning of a 9-6 loss to Colorado on April 21. The D-backs have not committed an error in eight consecutive games since, a streak that has reached 81 innings. The franchise record for consecutive errorless games is nine, set in 1999 and tied in 2005.

--By giving up four earned runs in two innings Thursday, Arizona's bullpen ERA climbed to 5.64, the worst in the NL. The D-backs did not offer contracts to free agent setup men Brandon Lyon and Juan Cruz in the offseason. Lyon signed with Detroit, Cruz with Kansas City.

--The D-backs tied a franchise record when they received five walks in the seventh inning Wednesday, one off Cubs starter Ryan Dempster and four off reliever Carlos Marmol. One was intentional. They received five walks in an inning Oct. 2, 1999, at San Diego and again June 8, 2001, at Kansas City. Both Jackson and 3B Mark Reynolds walked with the bases loaded Wednesday.

BY THE NUMBERS: .205 -- The D-backs' batting average with runners in scoring position, the lowest in the NL through April 26.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Obviously, I'm not real happy and it's not what we wanted to hear. Dr. (Michael) Lee said it was a three-to-six-week deal whenever you strain your shoulder. We went on the three-week side of it first and now we are going to go with the six-week side of it." -- RHP Brandon Webb, on his extended absence because of a shoulder injury.
