Well, the Diamondbacks at least did not lose to Jake Peavy. But they did a very poor job of hitting against a pitcher who came into the game with an ERA in seven starts that was north of eight. Arizona managed only three hits in six innings from Peavy, with their sole tally coming in the second, when Chris Owings doubled and scored Chris Herrmann. Meanwhile, Patrick Corbin was pitching merely okay. He actually outlasted Peavy, going 6.1 innings, but allowed a run in the first and then a two-run homer to Hunter Pence in the fourth. He was charged with three runs on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts.
The Diamondbacks did claw their way back into the game, getting an RBI groundout from Jean Segura in the seventh, and then tying things up in the eighth, as a Phil Gosselin sacrifice fly allowed Paul Goldschmidt to scurry home. However, Daniel Hudson had a rare stinker in the top of the ninth, giving up two hits, a walk and a hit batter, with the deadly blow a bases-loaded ground-rule double with two outs from St. Buster of the Flowers. Owings and Yasmany Tomas each had two hits, with Herrman reaching base twice, on a hit and a walk, as the D-backs dropped their fourth game in a row.
