Arizona blew a three-run lead, but eventually came through in the bottom of the 10th inning, Ender Inciarte winning it for the home team with a walk-off single.

Chase Anderson became the fourth consecutive D-back starter with a short outing, making it only through five innings before being lifted, after 100 pitches. He allowed three runs on five hits and three walks, with six strikeouts. However, Andrew Chafin followed with three perfect innings, and we'd need it, as this was the first edition of free D-backs baseball in 2015, the scores tied at three after nine. Paul Goldschmidt swatted his first home-run in the third inning, scoring Ender Inciarte and A.J. Pollock, but the Dodgers scratched one back in the fourth, then tied things up in the fifth on a two-run single by Jimmy Rollins.

The Dodgers threatened in the ninth off Addison Reed, putting two on with one out, but the go-ahead run was stranded at third. After a scoreless top of the tenth from Oliver Perez, Cliff Pennington drew a walk, and took second base on a wild pitch, then stole third as Pollock drew a walk. Inciarte punched the first pitch he saw through the right-hand side of the infield, and the Chase Field crowd got to enjoy the first walk-off celebration of the 2015 campaign.
