Diamondbacks 8, Braves 4

Patrick Corbin looked REALLY good, and the offense finally showed up in Atlanta.

The D-backs got on the board in the first, on a David Peralta single, but it was the middle innings where they opened the flood-gates scoring two in the fourth and three more in the next inning, to generate a six-run lead. Peralta homered and had a sacrifice fly, while there were also RBI for Chris Owings, Aaron Hill and Jake Lamb. Meanwhile, Patrick Corbin seemed to take another step forward, with six dominating innings of shutout ball. He ended up going 6.2, giving up only three hits, with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Things did get a little nervous on the fringes later on. Corbin flagged in the seventh, and David Hernandez got a K for the final out with the bases loaded. Keith Hessler and Daniel Hudson did not get it done in the eighth either, as the Braves scored four times to pull within two. But Paul Goldschmidt retired the natural order of things with a two-run single in the eighth, and Brad Ziegler than closed things out in the ninth. A.J. Pollock, Goldschmidt, Peralta and Lamb each had two hits for the Diamondbacks, and the team evened the road-trip record at 1-1.
