Diamondbacks 3, Padres 4

Arizona couldn't quite complete the sweep, as San Diego walked off winners, on an infield squibber on the ninth. A key play in the inning was one of two calls overturned in favor of the Padres

Wade Miley wasn't quite as good as Arroyo or McCarthy the past couple of days, but was still serviceable enough.  He allowed a total of three runs over seven innings, on six hits and a walk, with four strikeouts - the key blow was a two-run double to Padres' catcher Rene Rivera in the fourth. After a scoreless inning from Randall Delgado kept things tied after eight, Kirk Gibson went to Oliver Perez, but a bang-bang play at first, initially called out, was reversed on appeal. One out later, Rivera clubbed the ball over Gerardo Parra's head for a double, putting the winning run at third. Perez then opted to try and strike out a left-handed batter. It didn't work out too well.

The Diamondbacks couldn't take advantage of a trio of Padres errors, but did score three times in their half of the fourth inning. Paul Goldschmidt got his fifth home-run of the year, and Tuffy Gosewisch drove in two runs with a single later in the same inning. Goldschmidt and Parra each had a pair hits for Arizona, Goldie also drawing a walk. The team now moves on to Milwaukee for a three-game series which starts tomorrow. Mike Bolsinger will take on Matt Garza in the opener, with a first pitch of 5:10pm, Arizona time. preston.salisbury will be along in a little while with the detailed recap, so stick around for that.
