Dbacks 6, Phillies 7

After a string of solid performances, the pitching staff struggled and the offense couldn't pick up the slack, denying the team a sweep of the Phillies.

Looking for the series sweep before embarking on a long road trip, the Dbacks pitching staff struggled starting with Chase Anderson, making just his second start off the disabled list. While he struck out 5 batters, he allowed 9 hits and 5 runs in his 5 innings of work. Keith Hessler struggled in relief, allowing an RBI single and 2-run home run to put the Dbacks in a 7-4 hole that they would not come back from.

The Dbacks offense had their opportunities however, getting 2 runners on in the 6th with 0 outs but scored no runs. In the 8th, they had runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out but A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt couldn't capitalize, with a ground out and a strikeout respectfully. In the 9th, Peralta had a 2-out single before Ken Giles struck out Romak for the final out.

There were plenty of contributors on offense however, with the team combining for 15 hits. Ender Inciarte and Paul Goldschmidt had 3 hits with Pollock, Hill, Romak and Owings each tallying 2 hits.
