Leiter Jr. struck out six, ending the game with a 4.20 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Leiter entered his second major league start having allowed only two home runs in 25 innings pitched, but surrendered three long balls in this one. Jerad Eickhoff is expected to come off the DL next week, so Leiter's next appearance could be out of the bullpen or in the minors.

Leiter Jr. struck out five, ending the game with a 3.60 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The son of Mark Leiter and the nephew of Al Leiter -- both former major league pitchers -- the 26-year-old Leiter wasn't overpowering, with a fastball that topped out in the low 90s, but he constantly forced the Diamondbacks to chase cut fastballs, change-ups and a dominating split-finger fastball down in the strike zone. It probably made fans wonder why he labored with six minor league teams before finally reaching the majors at age 26.
