Zack Godley delivered a decent enough start for the Diamondbacks. He held the Dodgers to three runs over six innings, on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts, as LA scored two in the second and one in the fourth. That looked like it might be enough, as the D-backs struggled to come to terms with Kenta Maeda, who blanked them through six innings of his own. But Arizona then exploded for seven runs in the seventh inning, capped off by a bases-clearing double from Paul Goldschmidt, as they turned a 3-0 deficit into a 7-3 lead, batting around.
Unfortunately, the Dodgers responded by batting around themselves. Daniel Hudson and Zack Curtis couldn''t get an out between them, both allowing two-run homers, to let Los Angeles tie it back up. Randall Delgado then allowed an RBI single to give Los Angeles back the lead, before their five-run seventh came to an end. Dominic Leone then gave up his contractually-obliged run in the eighth, to give LA some insurance they wouldn't need. Goldschmidt had three hits, to see his season average back above .300, and Welington Castillo got a pair of hits.
