Diamondbacks 3, Phillies 4

The D-backs were 32-0 when leading after seven innings. That perfect record is no more.

The starting pitchers in this one also provided the early offense. First, the Phillies' starter got them on the board with an RBI single in the second, but Zack Greinke then tied things up in Arizona's half of the inning, with a sacrifice fly. That was his last contribution, however: after throwing some warm-up tosses and a visit to the dugout, Greinke ended up leaving the game with an injury to his oblique. There's no word as yet how serious this or whether it was just a precautionary move; it may have been tweaked when Greinke hurried to cover first earlier in the game.

That sent the D-backs scrambling for cover, with long relief man Josh Collmenter used last night in mop-up. Randall Delgado allowed a run on a solo home-run in his three innings, but the Diamondbacks tied things up in the sixth, with Yasmany Toma's 13th of the season. Jake Lamb then gave Arizona their first lead of the game with his team-leading 16th, the next time up. The A-bullpen of Tyler Clippard and Daniel Hudson took things to the ninth, but Brad Ziegler allowed five of the first six he faced to reach, scoring the tying and losing runs. Welington Castillo had three hits, while there were two apiece for Jean Segura, Lamb and Tomas.
