The D-backs continue to lose bodies, but they will continue to battle for wins.
"We always push on," said manager Kirk Gibson. "We'll try to win today and if we don't, we'll do it tomorrow. If we do, we'll win again tomorrow and hopefully put together a streak. The Royals have done it, the Tigers have done it, the Dodgers have done it, why can't it be us? I think that's the attitude you need.
"We'll prepare and play as hard as we can, regardless of the injuries. We've had a lot of them, probably more than most, and it hurts, but at the same time it's another opportunity for someone else."
Veteran infielder Eric Chavez landed on the disabled list Sunday with left knee and right hip issues. Veteran outfielder Cody Ross joined him Monday, a day after he dislocated his right hip. Ross will undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday.
"It's going to be a while," Gibson said. "It's a traumatic injury."
On Tuesday, a day after they clawed back from a three-run deficit to walk off with a 7-6 win, the D-backs will tangle with Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who is seeking his first win in four outings. Gonzalez submitted eight consecutive quality starts from June 6-July 20 before allowing a combined 15 runs (10 earned) in 8 1/3 innings over his next two outings. On Wednesday, he held the Padres to three runs over six frames.
Randall Delgado, the 23-year-old right-hander from Panama, is slated to start for Arizona. Delgado has posted a 4-3 record and 3.48 ERA in 11 outings (10 starts). After consecutive scoreless starts, including a three-hit shutout against the Padres on July 26, Delgado has allowed four earned runs in each of his last two appearances.
Orioles: O's could pursue bat
Baltimore could be in the market for a bat. At least, manager Buck Showalter thinks so. The skipper joked that if Arizona third-base coach Matt Williams kept taking batting practice, the club would consider activating him.
As for a more realistic option, Showalter suggested the club could use another body to pencil in at designated hitter. The Indians placed former Orioles slugger Mark Reynolds on release waivers Monday.
"I'm leaving that in [general manager] Dan [Duquette's] hands," Showalter said. "We've talked about that a little bit, but that's still going through the process. I'm sure we'll have another conversation at some point."
D-backs: No timetable for Ross' return
Gibson said he was hopeful Ross would be healthy in time for Spring Training next year.
"It's not like a guy who messed up his elbow where you know it'll be 11 months. I think it's a little more complicated than that," Gibson said. "I don't think many people do this in baseball. It's not a common injury."
Ross seemed to take a positive approach when talking with the skipper.
"He told me it was a bump in the road, not to worry and that he'll be good," Gibson said. "That's kind of how his attitude is."
• Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hit his Major League-leading 43rd home run Monday. Only one other player -- Detroit's Miguel Cabrera -- has more than 30.
• Arizona infielder Aaron Hill has five consecutive multi-hit games and has two hits in 10 of his last 14 contests.
