Diamondbacks 3, Padres 5

New, comments

Shelby Miller was forced out of the game in the second inning with a finger injury, and the Diamondbacks had to battle back from a 3-0 deficit to force extra innings. However, they were unable to prevail, as the Padres evened the series.

Shelby Miller's outing was cut unfortunately short, after he appears to injure his pitching hand hitting the ground on his follow-through. He ended up leaving the game with two outs in the second inning after having just walked in the Padres' second run - he was charged with two runs on two hits and three walks with a strikeout. That left the bullpen in for a long night, but they kept the game close, with Matt Buschmann allowing one run over two innings, Randall Delgado working two scoreless frames, and scoreless innings from Andrew Chafin, Daniel Hudson and Tyler Clippard.

The offense gradually clawed their way back from the early deficit, with single runs in the fifth, seventh and eighth innings, on a Jean Segura ground-out, Brandon Drury sacrifice fly, and a wild pitch which scored Rickie Weeks Jr with the tying run. That left things tied up at the end of regulation. Jake Barrett threw two good scoreless innings to hold the game there, and so did Brad Ziegler, but the D-backs hitters continued to struggle in the clutch going hitless with RISP on the night.  The long evening's work just proved too much for the bullpen and we ran out of relief arms: in the 14th inning, we had to turn to Rubby De La Rosa, who got a pair of strikeouts before allowing a walk-off homer to Upton.

No, the other one...
