Archie Bradley's first start back was disappointing, and even a rain delay couldn't save the Diamondbacks

Bradley's departure from the game coincided with the rain delay, both happening with no outs in the bottom of the third inning.  Bradley had already conceded two runs and had loaded the bases with no outs, allowing five hits and three walks over two innings. J.C. Ramirez did as well as could be expected, inhering that mess, getting a run-scoring double-play and a fly-ball, so we closed the third inning 4-0 down. Arizona clawed back, mostly courtesy of a two-run homer from Paul Goldschmidt, but it seemed that every time we scored, the Phillies would respond in kind. Andrew Chafin and Enrique Burgos both allowed runs, though Addison Reed worked two scoreless.

The other good news on offense was Yasmany Tomas finally hitting his first home-run as a Diamondback, going opposite field off Ken Giles in the eighth inning. That brought the Diamondbacks within two, but the Phillies sent out Jonathan Papelbon for the ninth, who took Arizona down in order. Tomas picked up a pair of hits, while Chris Owings had three, raising his season average to .270. We'll try and avoid the sweep tomorrow, and will need to improve our level of play if that's going to happen.
