July not being kind to Shaw
PHOENIX -- Things haven't been the same for reliever Bryan Shaw since the calendar turned over to July.

After allowing just one run in 11 1/3 innings in June, the right-hander has taken a beating this month, surrendering 10 runs (eight earned) in six innings, including seven in his last two outings.

Handed a three-run lead on Thursday in Cincinnati, Shaw walked two batters, then served up a two-run double and eventually took the loss after recording just one out.

Just a day later, he allowed three runs on three hits in an inning of work against the Astros.

"The ball was flying straight, not a lot of action on it," manager Kirk Gibson said. "He's struggling a bit right now, he goes through that. We'll continue to talk with him and encourage him."
