Diamondbacks 4, Red Sox 9

The four-game winning streak didn't so much end, as implode in a mess of three-run homers and sloppy fielding.

Things looked bright early, even after a Jean Segura TOOTBLAN, as Rickie Weeks' Jr clubbed his sixth home-run of the season in the first inning, to give Arizona a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately, his error in the bottom of the first helped open the door for the Red Sox to score four unearned runs off Patrick Corbin. Things went downhill from there, as four thoroughly earned runs followed off Corbin in the second inning - Hanley Ramirez had a three-run homer in both the first and second innings, which can't be something that happens often. Corbin was done after five outs, allowing nine hits and eight runs.

Zack Godley rescued the bullpen, throwing 5.1 innings of one-run ball, allowing only two hits - he walked none and struck out four. Tuffy Gosewisch set a career high with his third home-run in the fifth, his second in consecutive games. He also singled, and there were other two-hit games for Weeks, Segura, Phil Gosselin and Chris Owings, while Brandon Drury singled and walked. But all told? This was a severe reality check, after the pleasant feelings which resulted from the sweep in New York. Tankapalooza Lives!
