Dbacks 4, Blue Jays 2

One of those nights where good enough really was good enough. Patrick Corbin wasn't spectacular tonight, but he was good enough. He ended up going six and a third innings, with eight hits, three walks, and a couple of strike outs. For the most part, he spread out the baserunners, and didn't really let Toronto put anything together. The only time they had anything going was the fourth and seventh. In the fourth, Corbin gave up a two run double to Kevin Pilar to get the Blue Jays on the board, and left the game in the seventh after allowing runners on first and third,which Jake Barrett came in and handily got Josh Donaldson to ground into a double play and end the inning.

On the offensive side of the ball, it was the bottom of the line up carrying the team. Herrmann, Goldschmidt, and Lamb combined to go 1-for-12, but Weeks, Tomas, and O'Brian did the needed damage, and were responsible for three of the four runs on the night. In the end, a solid, if not spectacular, starting pitching performance and the bottom of the lineup stepping up added up to the Diamondbacks winning the series opener and extending their winning streak to five.
