Here's a quick look at the Chicago Cubs' 5-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday at Chase Field in Phoenix.

How it happened: Matt Garza allowed three runs on five hits in seven innings and got little support from his offense. Alfonso Soriano drove in the lone run for the Cubs with a solo homer in the seventh inning. Diamondbacks starter Wade Miley allowed just three hits in his eight innings to get the win.

What it means: The Diamondbacks swept the Cubs, who fell to 6-16 in June.

Outside the box: The Cubs have won just three of their 19 games against left-handed starters for the majors' worst mark.

Up next: The Cubs face another lefty when they return home on Monday to face the New York Mets. Travis Wood (1-3, 4.14) will start for the Cubs against the Mets’ Johan Santana (5-3, 3.00).
