When's the next road trip?

The balls were fair flying at Chase Field tonight. Patrick Corbin coughed up three home runs by the middle of the third, and the Pirates took a 5-1 lead. But the D-backs clawed their way back to 5-4, and Corbin managed to get through six innings without any further damage. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for Silvino Bracho and Randall Delgado, who combined to allow three runs over their two innings of work, and the Pirates stretched their lead back to four. Back came the D-backs once more, scoring three in the eighth, and leaving the tying run on third, to set up a dramatic ninth inning

However, Arizona couldn't quite finish the comeback, despite Jake Lamb coming off the bench, in a quest for more last-strike heroics, as in San Francisco. The Diamondbacks' winning streak ended at five games, as they came up just short and on the losing end, despite accumulating 15 hits - one off the franchise high for a regulation loss. Jean Segura had three hits, while there were two apiece for Brandon Drury, Welington Castillo - both of his were home-runs - David Peralta (including one home-run) and Corbin, who went 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI.

Turambar will be along in a bit with the beercap.
