Diamondbacks fielders are still shaking off the rust from the winter, it seems. 

During Monday’s game against the Giants, a pair of errors allowed San Francisco to score three runs on what should have been a fairly routine out. 

Pitcher Matt Moore was at the plate with the bases loaded and hit a weak dribbler up the first base line. Taijuan Walker’s throw home was well wide, allowing one run to score; Jeff Mathis’s throw back to the plate was also off the mark, allowing a second run to come in and Jarrett Parker hustled home to score the third run. 

It was like something you’d see in a Little League game. 

Because of the two errors, Moore was only credited with one RBI, his first since June 9, 2012.
