• With a the rough start, the D-backs' coaching staff has been vigilant about players trying to do too much to try to get the team going.
"There's a danger in talking about things too much," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "Everybody is trying to figure out what they can do differently to help us win ballgames. I don't feel like anybody is making any excuses. We just haven't executed very well, for whatever reason. Guys are trying, probably overthinking a bit, and it's not coming very natural."
• Reliever Will Harris has had a couple of rough outings after a strong 2013 season and an effective spring.
"He's pitched well for us in the past, and he'll turn it around," Gibson said.
• The D-backs had the lowest Fan Cost Index ($126.89) in Major League Baseball for the eighth consecutive season. The Fan Cost Index is compiled by Team Marketing Report and represents the expected cost for a family of four to attend a game. Included in the figure are four average tickets, two beers, four soft drinks, four hot dogs, parking for one car, two programs and two adult-sized hats.
