Diamondbacks 9, Braves 8

New, comments

The starting pitching disappointed once again but the offense never let down and allowed the Dbacks to take the game and the series.

In what has become a consistent theme with our starting pitching, Rubby de la Rosa only went 5 innings, giving up 7 runs on 9 hits but struck out 8. The bullpen was quite the opposite, with 4 innings and only 1 run given up to give the offense a chance to come back against the Braves.

And boy did they ever. Down 6-0, the team kept chipping away at the lead and before you knew it they had the lead. From the 2nd inning on, they would score at least 1 run in every inning except the 4th. Yasmany Tomas had 3 hits with A.J. Pollock, David Peralta, Chris Owings and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all having 2 hits a piece to pace the team on a rare Paul Goldschmidt off night at the plate.

With the win, the D-backs took the series from the Atlanta Braves and continue their homestand with a 4-game series with the Mets.
