Guess soco will be along in due course with the full recap, but while we're waiting... Both starters got out of the gate well, trading no hitters until the bottom of the fourth, when Chris Owings singled with one out. However, it was the visitors who got on the board first, scoring twice in the fifth, the first run coming on an RBI double by former D-back Lyle Overbay. Arizona got one back in their half, on a groundout by Didi Gregorius, but a Chase Anderson throwing error helped lead to a third run for Milwaukee. He left after six, having allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits, with no walks and four strikeouts.
Oliver Perez, Matt Stites and J.J. Putz took things the rest of the way. Stites made his major-league debut, working two-third of an inning, and giving up a hit which allowed a runner inherited from Perez to score. The score would have looked a bit uglier, except for the Brewers running into some outs on the basepaths, courtesy of Tuffy Gosewisch and Gerardo Parra. David Peralta and Cody Ross each had two hits for the D-backs, who now wait for the arrival of the slumping Giants, hoping they'll be easier prey for the snakes.
