Ross Ohlendorf was chased early in the Pirates' 8-5 loss in Arizona on Wednesday night.

Ohlendorf allowed seven runs in two-plus innings, raising the ERA for his injury-plagued 2011 season to 8.29, and making it even more unlikely that the Pirates will take him to arbitration after the season.

Two more players likely making their last stand as Pirates (albeit for different reasons), Derrek Lee and Ryan Ludwick, homered, and Lee went 3-for-4. But the Pirates weren't able to mustered a sustained rally to offset the Diamondbacks' early eight-run barrage. The Bucs never scored more than one run in any one inning.

Wade Miley went five innings for the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs and picking up the win. Miguel Montero hit a two-run homer in the first inning and went 3-for-4.
