The Arizona Diamondbacks were shut down Saturday but can still pick up a fourth straight series win with a triumph Sunday in the finale of their four-game series at the Milwaukee Brewers. Chase Anderson stifled the Diamondbacks with a no-hit bid that lasted into the eighth inning, lifting the Brewers to a 6-1 win and stopping Arizona's winning streak at five.

It also ended Milwaukee's five-game slide, during which it was outscored 33-15. Jesus Aguilar delivered a solo homer and Jett Bandy ripped a three-run double to pace the Brewers' attack against old friend Zack Greinke, who entered Saturday's game with a 16-2 record at Miller Park. The Diamondbacks will attempt to get back into the win column behind lefty Patrick Corbin, who will be making his 100th career start. Jimmy Nelson, who is 0-3 in five starts at home, goes for Milwaukee.
