The Diamondbacks succeeded in getting to Johnnie Cueto early, scoring three times in the first inning. Paul Goldschmidt drove in the first one, blooping an RBI double down the right-field line, to score Jean Segura. Welington Castillo followed one out later, with his ninth home-run of the season, and Miller had an early lead. He gave up a run in the second inning, but Arizona got the run back in the bottom of the third, as Jake Lamb cranked his 18th homer, to right-field. But that was all the offense would muster in the way of runs. The nine hits were divided among eight different players - Castillo got two - and we struck out 10 times, with one walk.
Miller only walked two tonight, but of those came around to score, on two-run hits with two outs. The likely questionable decision was not walking the #8 hitter with a base open in the fourth inning to face Cueto. Instead, a two-run single pulled San Francisco back within one. And in the sixth, Miller allowed a two-run double that just went fair down into right field, scoring the tying and go-ahead runs. His final line was five runs over six innings, on eight hits, with five K's. Andrew Chafin worked a scoreless seventh, then Randall Delgado allowed a solo home-run to give the Giants some insurance.
