The Diamondbacks mounted a serious threat in the top of the first inning but Ryan Braun killed it, and the hitters haven't done much since.
In the bottom of the first, Ian Kennedy zipped through the top of Milwaukee's lineup. In the bottom of the second, Kennedy struck out Prince Fielder looking and walked Rickie Weeks -- both working their counts full -- before Jerry Hairston shot a grounder toward third base that Ryan Roberts couldn't corral. Kennedy did recover, retiring Yuniesky Betancourt on a pop into short right field and Jonathan Lucroy on a liner to left.
One positive for Milwaukee: After throwing only 12 pitches in the first inning, Kennedy needed 27 to escape the second. Arizona's bullpen has been fine this season, but the Brewers would obviously prefer to see middle relievers instead of Ian Kennedy in the sixth and seventh innings.
Meanwhile, Gallardo settled down in his second inning, setting down the D'backs in order.
Diamondbacks 0, Brewers 0
