Diamondbacks 6, Padres 4

A long-ball barrage erupted at Petco, six home-runs being responsible for all ten tallies this afternoon. But our home-runs were better than their home-runs.

It didn't take long for the Home-Run Derby to start, the Padres' first batter of the day, Matt Kemp, giving them a 1-0 lead. But the Diamondbacks answered back immediately, taking advantage of a San Diego error, as Welington Castillo delivered the beef with a three-run shot, his fourth in the short time since being traded from Seattle.. David Peralta followed in the third with a solo shot, his sixth, and Jake Lamb made the most of a rare chance against left-handed pitching, greeting the Padres bullpen with a two-run shot, his first since the second game of the season. Offensive otherwise was limited: singles by Lamb,. Aaron Hill and Paul Goldschmidt, with no walks.

Meanwhile, Chase Anderson was doing much the same thing: not allowing much, except for home-runs. He gave up three of those, for the second consecutive start, two of them to Padres' catcher, Derek Norris. But he worked through seven innings, being charged with four runs on five hits and a walk, with just the one strikeout. Daniel Hudson worked a perfect eight, before turning the ball over to Brad Ziegler, who issued a two-out walk before striking out a pinch-hitter to end the game and notch his 12th save. The win snaps our three-game losing streak, and moves us back to third-place in the National League West.
