Josh Collmenter continued his run of solid outings, and a five-run fifth inning was enough for the Diamondbacks to snap their six-game losing streak as they opened a series in Minnesota

The Twins got on the board first, with a two-out RBI single in the third inning. However, Josh Collmenter did a very solid job of shutting them down otherwise, and pitched into the seventh inning. His line would have looked better, save for Oliver Perez doing a poor job of stranding the runner he inherited, but even so, Collmenter still ended up being charged with two runs in 6.1 innings, on five hits and a walk with five strikeouts. After Perez retired one of three batters faced, Evan Marshall and Will Harris finished things off with zeroes in the eighth and ninth innings.

The offense largely consisted of one inning, which opened with back-to-back-to-back hits by Jake Lamb, Chris Owings and Didi Gregorius, the latter an RBI double. A groundout and wild pitch scored two more runs, and later in the inning, Mark Trumbo clubbed his 12th home-run of the season, and third in the last two games, to right-field. Gregorius had three doubles on the night, with three hits for A.J. Pollock as well, and two apiece for Ender inciarte, Owings and Aaron Hill. However, Hill left the game in the eighth, injuring his hand as he slid in to score the taco'th run in the eighth. Word is he dislocated the tip of his right pinky, and he is "day to day". But I'm betting tomorrow is not that day.
