  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Settling in as setup arm

    McGough struck out one over a scoreless and hitless inning to earn a hold in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Atlanta.

    McGough did his job in the eighth inning, but closer Miguel Castro let it slip away in the ninth. McGough faltered early in the season, but he's righted himself and back pitching in high-leverage spots. On May 6, the right-hander was 0-3 with three blown saves and a 5.87 ERA over 15.1 innings. In the same number of innings since then, McGough sports a 0.59 ERA with 20 strikeouts with just five hits allowed.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Can't escape third jam

    McGough (0-4) took the loss in Tuesday's 9-8 extra-innings loss to the Athletics. He allowed one unearned run on two hits and three walks (two intentional) while striking out four over 2.1 innings.

    McGough worked the extra frames for Arizona, throwing a career high in innings and pitches (49). After escaping jams in the 10th and 11th, the right hander was unable to wriggle out of one in the 12th. McGough has a 4.50 ERA (5.48 FIP) with 22 strikeouts and eight walks over 22 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Can't hold lead

    McGough (0-3) allowed two runs on two hits while striking out one over one inning and took the loss to the Rangers on Tuesday.

    McGough entered with the Diamondbacks leading after starter Zac Gallen managed five innings. The reliever retired the first two batters faced but allowed a two-out single and a two-run home run that Ezequiel Duran smacked 431 feet. There have been a few hiccups for McGough, but the right-hander settled down and entered Tuesday with just one run allowed and nine strikeouts over the previous nine innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Logs fifth hold

    McGough retired both batters faced to earn a hold in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Kansas City.

    McGough stranded an inherited runner from starter Zac Gallen to pick up his fifth hold and second in as many outings. After he was given opportunities to close games, McGough appears to be settling in as part of the setup crew along with Miguel Castro as the bridge to closer Andrew Chafin. McGough is chipping away at a high ERA that stood at 9.64 after a blown save two weeks ago. Since then, he's allowed one run on two hits while striking out six over seven innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Saddled with loss

    McGough (0-2) allowed two runs on three hits over a third of an inning, picking up the loss to Miami on Saturday.

    McGough came out of an impressive spring training as a late-inning relief option, but the right-hander's uneven regular-season performance may take him out of consideration for save chances. His appearance in the seventh inning Saturday after the Diamondbacks had taken the lead ended up being his second blown save in three opportunities. McGough's allowed five runs on six hits, including three home runs, and three walks over 4.2 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Back from paternity leave

    The Diamondbacks reinstated McGough (personal) from the paternity list Wednesday.

    McGough missed Tuesday's loss to the Brewers while welcoming a new member of his family, but the 33-year-old will be available for Wednesday's series finale. Arizona optioned Carlos Vargas to Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Goes on paternity leave

    Arizona placed McGough on the paternity leave list Tuesday.

    McGough has been excused from the Diamondbacks as he welcomes a new member of his growing family. The 33-year-old reliever holds an 8.10 ERA through 3.1 innings of work this season. Jose Ruiz, acquired from the White Sox on Sunday, will join the Arizona bullpen in his place.

  • Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Blows saves, takes loss

    McGough (0-1) was tagged with Monday's loss after allowing two runs on two hits without retiring a batter in a 5-4 loss to the Padres.

    McGough, looking to earn a second save in as many games, served up back-to-back home runs to David Dahl and Ha-Seong Kim, turning a potential comeback win into a crushing walkoff loss. "You just try to keep level-headed, come back to work tomorrow," he told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. The scene was a throwback to 2022 when the Diamondbacks were walked off 11 times and suffered 41 relief losses, both tied for most in the majors. McGough has been through this rodeo before -- as a high-leverage reliever in Japan -- and knows how to bounce back.
