The game started off fairly quiet for both teams. Both the Padres and Diamondbacks only managed one hit through the first three innings. The first scoring play of the game came in the top of the fourth thanks to a two-run single from David Peralta off Tyson Ross.That ended up being the game winning hit.
Brandon McCarthy was on top of his game tonight. After dominating through the first four innings, McCarthy ran into trouble in the fifth. Maybin led off the inning with a single, followed by a double from Armarista. Tyson Ross helped himself with a sac fly, but that was all the damage McCarthy would allow. After a TOOTBLAN from the Padres in the sixth, McCarthy finished off with seven great innings. Brad Ziegler pitched a 1-2-3 inning in the eighth, followed by another one from Reed in the ninth.
With the win, the Diamondbacks are now a game back of the Padres for fourth place. (Woot!)
