Diamondbacks 5, Reds 2

Jamie Sabau

Game two in Cincinnati featured a dominating performance by Patrick Corbin and a grand slam by Paul Goldschmidt.

Game two of the Diamondbacks and Reds started off with the first 15 batters of the game being retired by the starting pitchers. In the 4th inning for Arizona, starting pitcher Tony Cingrani gave up a solo home run to Martin Prado, a walk to Paul Goldschmidt and a double to Aaron Hill before being removed from the game with a lower back strain.

Patrick Corbin dominated Cincinnati this fine evening. In addition to retiring the first six in a row, he retired 10 Reds in a row from the 4th to 7th innings. He allowed just two hits through the first six innings. He allowed two hits in the 7th inning for the Reds' first threat with runners on the corners with two outs. In the 8th inning, he gave up a single to Zach Cozart and a home run to Chris Heisey to give the Reds their first two runs of the game.

Luckily, by then, the Reds' runs hardly mattered. In the top half of the 8th inning, Corbin, A.J. Pollock and Prado singled to chase reliever Sam LeCure. That brought Paul Goldschmidt to the plate, and he chose that time to smash his 3rd grand slam of the year and bring in RBIs #97, #98, #99, and #100.

Patrick Corbin pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning for the complete game.
