PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks managed the game about as well as it could have been managed Saturday. They kept the Phillies' potential big innings small. They were errorless again. They put themselves within a hit of making things very interesting in each of the final two innings.
But sometimes it just does not happen, and the 3-1 loss to Philadelphia at Chase Field was one of those times.
Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon got big outs when they needed them, and even though the Phillies left 11 runners on base, they made just enough of their chances to stop the D-backs winning streak at five.
The Diamondbacks have won nine games in their last at-bat this season and have won 10 one-run games, and they were this close to another against Papelbon in the ninth inning.
Gerardo Parra singled and and pinch hitter Eric Chavez doubled with one out in the inning to put the tying runs a single away, but Papelbon struck out the final two batters for his sixth save.
