Dbacks drop 2nd straight, are shut-out by trophy fish

From the article: “If you were swimming and went underwater, and somebody standing next to the pool shouted to you, you would hear them,” Ruane said. “You might not be able to make out the details … That’s sort of what snakes are hearing at higher frequencies.”
