No lead is ever safe in Denver. Both teams seemed intent on wasting a plethora of chances early on. Neither starter got through six, but the score was only 2-1 to Arizona in the middle of the sixth. A Jake Lamb error led to two Colorado runs in the bottom of the inning, but Arizona put up a six-spot immediately. Yasmany Tomas smashed a three-run homer and Lamb redeemed himself - temporarily - with a two-run triple. The Diamondbacks were 8-3 up in the middle of the seventh inning, but the bullpen suffered another horrific meltdown
Zack Godley allowed two runs in the seventh, and Daniel Hudson didn't retire any of the three batters he faced in the eighth. Randall Delgado didn't do much better, though wasn't helped by more Lamb errors - he ended up with three on the night, and has the team lead now, with 11. But a Yasmany Tomas HR and Michael Bourn single gave Arizona their third lead in the ninth, and Brad Ziegler started a new save streak. Lamb, albeit not without some... issues, shall we say. Tomas, Segura and Chris Herrmann each had three hits, and Paul Goldschmidt got on base five times, with two hits and a pair of walks - he is now batting .300 on the season. The team stole a total of six bases.
Something beercap shaped will be along... eventually.
