The Diamondbacks jumped out quickly, scoring three in the first on an RBI single from Jake Lamb and two-run double by Brandon Drury. The Dodgers threatened to strike back immediately, loading the bases with no outs, but Robbie Ray got a pair of strikeouts and a fly-ball, to end the threat, and was rarely troubled thereafter. He ended up going seven innings, allowing four hits and a pair of walks with seven strikeouts. Ray also needed only 101 pitches this outing, which was remarkably efficient by Ray's standards.

Jake Lamb also homered in the third, to make it 4-0; Michael Bourn added an RBI double to left in the fifth, and a wild pitch scored Bourn in the seventh to give the Diamondbacks a 6-0 lead. The Arizona bullpen sucked. They lost the shutout in the eighth, as Daniel Hudson's struggles continued with a two-run homer. Then Tyler Clippard and Jake Barrett combined to allow three runs and put the tying run on third with one out. But Barrett got consecutive K's to preserve the win. This was the first time the Diamondbacks had won consecutive games at Chase in almost five weeks, since beating the Marlins and Dodgers on June 12-13.
