After last night's game, the Diamondbacks were looking for a bounce back game. It wasn't pretty, but they got it. Josh Collmenter did better tonight than he has for a while. He lasted 5 and 2/3 innings, gave up six hits, no walks, three earned runs, and no walks. He left the game with a lead, but J. C. Ramirez came in, allowed two inherited runners to score, taking Josh out of the decision, and then was responsible for three more runs of his own.
The offense picked the pitching up tonight, though. They tagged Braves' starter, Shelby Miller, for three earned runs. This was the first time in ten starts that Miller had actually given up more than two earned runs in a start. That knocked him out of the game in the fifth inning, and then over the course of the next four innings, the Dbacks tagged the Braves' bullpen for three more runs, including a two-run, go ahead homer off the bat of A. J. Pollock in the seventh to give the Dbacks the final score of 7-6. Full recap to follow shortly!
