Braden Shipley looked good, and extremely efficient early on, getting a lot of quick out through the start of this game. However, he gave up a towering two-run homer with two outs in the third inning. He settled down in the fourth, but San Diego posted a pair of crooked numbers against Shipley in the fifth and sixth, the latter leading to his departure. He ended up working 5.1 innings, and being charged with seven runs on hits and one walk, with five strikeouts. Dominic Leone allowed the inherited runner to score, but left two of his own on second and third. Patrick Corbin worked a scoreless seventh, but then gave up two in the eighth.
Meanwhile, the offense was largely handcuffed by Luis Perdomo, who allowed an unearned run over his seven innings. The Diamondbacks managed five hits, none of them for extra bases and no walks. Two of those came off the bat of Brandon Drury, who also broke up the shutout with an RBI single in the seventh. The D-backs now return to Chase Field for a four-game set against the Braves, which promises to be a thrilling display of well-played baseball between two sides with everything to play for.
