SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Kirk Gibson said he is not frustrated by his team's poor play in the Cactus League, but the D-backs' manager sure sounded like it after watching his club commit three errors against the Cubs on Sunday afternoon.
"We just can't continue to play that way, for sure," Gibson said. "It's not frustrating. Things have a way of working themselves out. So we're here to find things out and sometimes we have to address them. We obviously have to be better than that. I mean that's terrible."
With the loss to the Cubs, the D-backs fell to 5-15 on the spring. The lone off-day is set for Monday, and they pick things up against the Giants on Tuesday night.
"We need an off-day," Gibson said. "I'm not going to stand here and be negative. We're disappointed to lose games like we've been losing them. We'll leave it at that. We'll come back on Tuesday, have a good meeting and we'll try to regroup. We've got almost 2 1/2 weeks and we'll get it turned around. They all know they have to be better."
