Bronson Arroyo pitched 7.1 solid innings for the Diamondbacks, keeping the Brewers offense off balance. Milwaukee's only run came in the first inning, an unearned run thanks to a fielding error by Martin Prado, but Arroyo kept the Brewers bats fairly quiet for the rest of his outing. Milwaukee hit into four double plays to help keep the bases clear, including one when Brad Ziegler replaced Bronson Arroyo and allowed a single to load the bases. Addison Reed came in and allowed one run in the ninth, but struck out Mark Reynolds to earn the save.

The Arizona offense was more active than the home team's, putting up fourteen hits on the afternoon, but they stranded a baker's dozen of players on the bases. The majority of Arizona's runs came early on, thanks to a two run Paul Goldschmidt home run in the second inning, his seventh of the season. Bronson Arroyo scored an insurance run in the top of the eighth, scoring on Lyle Overbay's fielding error. The win gives Arizona a series victory over Milwaukee as they head to Chicago to face the White Sox on Friday.
