— Rodrigo Lopez made his strongest case yet for cracking Arizona’s rotation, while former Diamondbacks left-hander Doug Davis struggled against his former team.

Lopez, a 34-year-old right-hander, blanked Milwaukee on three hits over 5 1/3 innings in the Diamondbacks’ 9-1 victory on Sunday.


Davis was battered for six runs and nine hits in five innings. Miguel Montero doubled in three runs and was one of four Arizona players to get two hits off Davis.


Davis struck out three, walked four and hit a batter. He signed as a free agent with Milwaukee, where he pitched for just over three seasons before spending the last three with Arizona.


“Talking to (pitching coach) Rick (Peterson) and evaluating Doug, sometimes he might get out of synch,” Brewers manager Ken Mauch said, “and you are going to have games where you have walks, hit batsmen and give up some hits.”
