game,” Nova said. ”We had some opportunities to win and we didn’t. When we got
the chance, they took it away from us.”

Diaz’s wild throw. Diaz fielded Marte’s two-out chopper and threw to the foul

bounced a throw when he tried to force Gregory Polanco at home with the bases
loaded and one out on a grounder by Starling Marte.
The error pinned Brad Boxberger with his fourth blown save in 20 chances and
second in as many appearances, but he prevented further damage by striking out
David Freese and getting Diaz to ground out.
”He created an inning, but he wiggled out of the situation and gave us a
chance to win,” Lovullo said.
