Touch 'Em All: Morrison slams bat, needs stitches
A piece of the bat broke off and caused a cut above his left eye that needed five stitches.
Morrison said he acted "like a 3-year-old." He said he didn't want to come out of the game, "but they saw me gushing blood from my eyebrow."
Fister's streak ends
Fister (5-2) pitched six innings, allowing seven hits and four runs. He took the blame for the loss.
"I didn't do my job today," Fister said. "It basically comes down to poor execution. I've got to do a lot better when it comes to critical pitches. That's what it comes down to."
Matt Adams and Matt Holliday went went deep off Fister.
"The home runs were the two biggest things for me," Fister said. "I need to find a better effort."
The Arizona Diamondbacks didn't allow Sunday's 6-3 victory over the Dodgers to keep their attention away from the big picture, which is keeping Bronson Arroyo healthy.
Arroyo left after five innings with elbow pain.
The righthander informed manager Kirk Gibson that he couldn't continue because of pain that had been bothering him since a 110-pitch, complete-game victory over Washington on May 13.
"It wasn't that much fun," Arroyo said after throwing 78 pitches and allowing a run on five hits.
The 15-year veteran expects to undergo an MRI exam on Monday.
