Diamondbacks squander chances in 8-3 loss to Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) Facing Pirates ace Gerrit Cole, the Arizona Diamondbacks gave themselves plenty of chances to break the game open and grab a win.

They had runners in scoring position in six different innings, but were largely unable to capitalize on their opportunities in an 8-3 loss that saw the Diamondbacks fall to a season-worst seven games under .500.

Cole was far from sharp from the start, giving up back-to-back doubles to Jean Segura and Jason Bourne in the first inning to give the Diamondbacks an early 1-0 lead. Cole needed 106 pitches to get through five innings. But with the Pirates' ace scuffling, the Diamondbacks hit just 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position and left 26 men on base.
