It Happened Last Night
Zack Godley managed to put in six innings of three-run ball despite giving up two home runs to the Mariners on Tuesday night. A.J. Pollock proved that, despite the legend, Iwakuma can be stolen on, and the Diamondbacks found some timely hits to extend their winning streak to four games.

Randall Delgado sprained his right ankle during pregame drills, requiring a trip to the 15-day DL. This paved the way Arizona to recall its embattled closer from Reno.
The Diamondbacks entered Tuesday with a .188 average with runners in scoring position in 14 games since July 8, the day they pulled their record even at .500 in Texas. It was the third-worst average in the majors during that span, and, not surprisingly, they entered the day tied for the third-fewest runs scored.
