Diamondbacks 5, Dodgers 9

Ah. So THAT'S where Bad Rubby went...

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The early going was a mirror-image of last night's game, as the Dodgers took Rubby De La Rosa to the wood-shed over the first three innings. He didn't retire a batter in the third, allowing nine hits and a walk with one strikeout. His issue with the long-ball resurfaced, allowing a pair of home-runs. Andrew Chafin relieved him with no outs in the third, and allowed a home-run, to put the Dodgers 7-0 up after three. Yet the Diamondbacks managed to make a game of it, and had the tying run at the plate in the next inning, after scoring three times and loading the bases; unfortunately, David Peralta was not able to come through.

In the end, it was just too big a hole for the offense to dig themselves out from. They did get ten hits, with two apiece for Ender Enciarte and Paul Goldschmidt, and Welington Castillo reached base three times, on a hit and a pair of walks. Peter O'Brien continues to hit 1.000, with his second pinch-hit RBI single since joining the roster, The bullpen pitched reasonably well in a lengthy outing, allowing three runs over their seven innings of work. Matt Reynolds worked a pair of scoreless innings in relief. The rubber game is tomorrow, with the SnakePit in attendance, and we'll see if we can beat Zack Greinke....
