Arizona were actually ahead after the third inning here. A two-run triple by Michael Bourn, and a ground by Paul Goldschmidt had helped the team overcome a two-run deficit. However, Patrick Corbin could not protect the lead he was given, coughing up a five-run fourth innings as the Dodgers surged back to take the lead. Corbin's night was done there: he was charged with seven runs (one unearned) on seven hits and three walks, but did strike out seven. Outside of Josh Collmenter's two scoreless frames, the Arizona bullpen was unimpressive, and Los Angeles pounded out a season high with 18 hits tonight.
The offense had its moments, with Michael Bourn, Jake Lamb and Paul Goldschmidt all getting out of the gate hot with two hits apiece. Jean Segura had his seventh home-run and Goldschmidt his 16th, both coming as part of a three-run seventh for the Diamondbacks. Goldie also stole his 12th base and Nick Ahmed his 5th, but there were more defensive issues for Lamb, who committed two errors in the third inning, contributing to a Dodgers run. But this was a highly forgettable way to start the second half - and, at close to four hours in duration, it was a long, drawn out kind of unpleasantness as well, as the D-backs lost their fifth game in a row.
