Things started poorly for the team.
It quickly turned around.
Jake Lamb with a three-run home run. That's No. 17. #Dbacks— Jesse Sanchez (@JesseSanchezMLB) June 29, 2016
And fans were happy for runs.
Archie Bradley was cruising, supported by a TOOTBLAN in the 4th.
Nice play by Bourn to cut the ball off on Hernandez's double, #Dbacks execute perfect relay to get Galvis by about 5 steps at the plate.— John Marshall (@jmarshallap) June 29, 2016
But the 5th was trouble for Bradley.
He settled in, leaving the game after 6 innings with a 4-3 lead.
The bullpen immediately blew their first lead of the day.
But the offense responds!

Daniel Hudson and Co. made sure that lead didn't hold up.
Daniel Hudson gets just 1 out, gives up 4 Hits, 2 Runs. He came into the 8th w/ a 3 run lead, now he's out leaving tying run on 1st..#Dbacks— Ed Staley (@TheMoneyline411) June 29, 2016

The D-backs tie things up!
The #Dbacks try so hard to lose, then so hard to win. You just wonder: what if they only tried to win? Really makes you think...— Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24) June 29, 2016
After Brad Ziegler shut the Phillies down, the D-backs threatened.

The bullpen tried to keep the game tied.

Michael Bourn bunted to get a runner on in the 10th, but...

Another matinee home loss for the D-backs and 23 brave souls came out to support the team. AzDbackfanInDc did his best with 205 comments, but it wasn't enough. Comment of the thread goes to preston.sailsbury who said what we were all thinking.
Off-day tomorrow. Enjoy it.
