After the late inning drama of Tuesday night's extra innings game in St. Louis, the Diamondbacks did not leave much to chance on Wednesday. The offense racked up eleven hits and ten runs on the night, with the nail in the Cardinals' coffin coming from Paul Goldschmidt in the seventh inning as he hit his second grand slam in less than a week. Martin Prado added two doubles and scored twice.
On the mound, Wade Miley bounced back from his past few rough outings, helping out a Diamondbacks bullpen that wanted some rest. Miley went 6.2 innings and looked like he might escape the seventh with only one run allowed on the night, but a potential double play deflected off everyone's favorite umpire and extended the inning. Brad Ziegler, Will Harris, and Tony Sipp filled in the rest of the game, and the Diamondbacks took an easy win and assured themselves of at least a series split against the Cardinals.
