Diamondbacks, Ray avoid sweep with 9-0 win over Cubs

PHOENIX (AP) After resting most of their regular hitters, the Arizona Diamondbacks came through with a big win to avoid falling further behind in their playoff chase.

Christian Walker and Chris Owings homered off Cole Hamels, and Robbie Ray held the Cubs to one hit over six innings as Arizona beat the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs 9-0 Wednesday night.

"We were not throwing in the towel today, and I think everybody in that dugout knew it," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said, promising that his "main guys" will be back in the lineup for the next game.
