Archie Bradley was wobbly again, as was Randall Delgado, but the rest of the bullpen was great, and the offense pulled out a win, to complete the four-game road sweep of the Marlins

Arizona took the lead in the top of the first, but Archie Bradley's day started badly, as the first four Marlins reached base, on their way to a three-run first inning. Bradley lasted five innings, allowing four runs on nine hits and two walks, striking out four, but was briefly in line for the win, as the Diamondbacks scored four times in the top of the sixth, to take a 6-4 lead. However, Randall Delgado immediately gave up the lead, allowing Miami to tie things up on a pair of run-scoring singles with two outs in the bottom of the sixth, and had to be bailed out by Andrew Chafin. He, Addison Reed and Brad Ziegler combined to retire the last ten Marlins batters.

We loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the eighth, but the chance looked like it would go begging, as Jordan Pacheco was out at home, trying to score on a sacrifice fly by Ender Inciarte. However, A.J. Pollock's speed turned the game in our favor, as he legged out an infield hit to score Cliff Pennington. Ziegler notched a 1-2-3 ninth for his first save, and the Diamondbacks have our first four-game winning streak since July 2013. It was also our first victory this season where the team was trailing after three innings. Inciarte has three hits, Pollock and Yasmany Tomas two each, the latter notching his sixth straight multi-hit game, one off the team record.

Full recap might be a bit, since soco has to get home from work first. Bask in the reflected glory of a four-game sweep and a winning road-trip.
