Zack Greinke was almost back to his vintage self, and the offense delivered tacos as the Diamondbacks won both consecutive home games and a series at Chase for the first time in 2016

It was the Yankees who got on the board first, Starlin Castro murdering a hanging pitch from Zack Greinke to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the second. However, Greinke settled down thereafter and that was the only runs he allowed before leaving the game after allowing the first two to reach in the eighth inning. Both of those men came around to score, but Greinke worked seven innings, allowing five hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. Daniel Hudson took over in the eighth, and did allow an RBI groundout and RBI single, but then got consecutive strikeouts to keep Arizona in the lead.

For the offense had got to Yankees' starter Michael Pineda. Nick Ahmed singled in the bottom of the second, to score Chris Owings and tie the game, then Paul Goldschmidt and Welington Castillo singled in the third. With one out and one on, Jake Lamb delivered his sixth home-run to make the score 5-1 to Arizona after five. The Yankees' late surge made it a save situation for Brad Ziegler, but he worked around a two-out walk to nail down the save. Jean Segura, Goldschmidt and Ahmed each had two hits for the D-backs on offense. ish95 was at the game, so the detailed recap might be a little while.
