Anyone who came into Wednesday night's game looking for more tension from yesterday's brawl was disappointed, but what they got instead was a pretty exciting ball game, giving us plenty of hits, double plays, and extra innings drama. Patrick Corbin didn't manage to rack up his tenth win of the season, only going five innings and allowing four runs, but the offense did enough to keep him off the hook for the loss by stringing together a lot of singles in the fourth inning to scratch out three runs for an early lead and then tying it in the seventh.

The rest of the excitement came in extra innings, though, with the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks trading zeroes on the scoreboard up until the twelfth. Los Angeles's luck finally ran out there, as the DBacks batted around, starting with a Cody Ross double to start the inning and a single from Miguel Montero. Martin Prado finally broke the tie with a ground rule double to score Ross, and an intentional walk to Didi Gridorius loaded the bases as Brandon League, LA's villain from Monday's game, took the mound. League struggled again, giving up hits that brought in three more runs and an 8-4 lead for Arizona. Heath Bell wobbled as he took the mound to close the game, giving up a solo home run to Ramon Hernandez to start the inning, but he whittled down the Dodgers chances and Arizona won, 8-6.
