The Diamondbacks offense took a while to wake up on Tuesday night, being held hitless through the first three innings by Travis Wood. But when the bats started working, they came alive with a vengeance, hammering the Cubs pitching for 14 hits and 10 runs, the most hits the team has put up since their 15 inning marathon with the Mets on July 4th. Adam Eaton lead the charge with three hits and three runs, while AJ Pollock and Eric Chavez both contributed three RBIs apiece.
Patrick Corbin turned in another strong performance in his first start after the All Star Game for his twelfth win, striking out six batters and holding the Cubs to four hits and one run in six innings. Chicago added home runs off of David Hernandez in the eighth and Tony Sipp in the ninth inning, but that didn't do much more than chip away at the deficit, as Arizona took the second game of the series.
