Early hopes for the Diamondbacks fell apart in the later innings in New York this evening. Arizona took an early lead on a two run home run from Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning, and added to that lead with a sacrifice fly by A.J. Pollock in the fifth. Wade Miley kept the Yankees bats quiet through the first six innings, but finally ran into trouble in the seventh, giving up a double and a walk to load the bases with two outs for New York and then walking in the Yankees first run. Tony Sipp was called on to relieve Miley, but gave up a two run single to Brett Gardner to tie the game. A two out home run by pinch hitter Travis Hafner gave New York a lead in the bottom of the eighth, and Mariano Rivera came in for a 1-2-3 inning to close out the game for the Yankees. C.C. Sabathia pitched 8 innings for New York to earn the win.
