Diamondbacks 7, Brewers 5

It looked a tad dicey, as Rubby De La Rosa coughed up multiple leads, but the bullpen held strong, and a pair of late home-runs proved decisive, as the D-backs ended their three game losing streak.

Rubby De La Rosa repeated Josh Collmenter's trick, allowing a home-run to the first batter of the game he faced, after an RBI double by David Peralta had given the Diamondbacks an early lead. Solo homers in the third inning, by Ender Inciarte and Peralta, made it 3-1 to Arizona, but the Brewers struck back immediately, getting a two-run bomb in their half of the inning. The visitors went ahead again in the fifth, as Yasmany Tomas brought Paul Goldschmidt home with a ground-out - but once more, the home team responded, and De La Rosa's night ended after five, with the score tied at four. He was charged with all the runs, on six hits and two walks, with four K's.

Daniel Hudson had a good sixth, but got into trouble in the seventh. Oliver Perez didn't retire a batter, and we turned to Addison Reed with the bases loaded and one out for Milwaukee. Impressively, he escaped the jam, and then added a scoreless eighth. Arizona had taken the lead in between times, on Nick Ahmed's third home-run of the season, and A.J. Pollock's fifth, a two-run shot, added some insurance in the ninth. Brad Ziegler allowed a run but closed things out in the ninth. Goldschmidt had three hits, all doubles, and there were two-hit games for Inciarte, Peralta and Owings. Jarrod Saltalamacchia was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his Arizona debut.
