Bit of a contrast to last night's slug-fest, but the D-backs walked off winners after tying the game in dramatic fashion.

Yesterday, these two teams combined for 20 runs. This evening, there was a total of three runs scored, and that was over rather more playing time. Both Archie Bradley and Brandon McCarthy pitched well, going six innings apiece. Bradley allowed one run on six hits and a walk, with three walks and three strikeouts, but McCarthy blanked the D-backs over his six frames, striking out eight. The D-backs were trailing by one in the ninth, and were down to their last strike when Jake Lamb flipped the ball into the left-center gap, allowing Michael Bourn to score from second, and tag the Dodgers' closer Kenley Jansen with the blown save.

The D-backs bullpen did deliver six scoreless innings, with Enrique Burgos and Tyler Clippard throwing two apiece. But it wasn't pretty, with a lot of traffic: the Dodgers stranded a total of 15 men and were 1-for 15 with runners in scoring position. However, it didn't matter, because in the 12th inning, it was that man Lamb again, who led things off with a triple. The Dodgers intentionally walked the next two to load the bases, but Brandon Drury then poked the ball through the infield for the team's second walk-off win of the season. Lamb had three hits and Nick Ahmed a pair.
