Braden Shipley was not as effective as in his previous outing, and struggled to throw strikes - he walked six batters in his six innings of work. However, he was generally effective at making the big pitch when he needed it, and got some help from the defense behind him. As a result, he held Milwaukee to two runs on four hits with a pair of strikeouts. There was a two-out RBI single in the fourth, and a solo home-run to lead off the seventh, his last batter of the game. Each of those tied the game up, the Diamondbacks having scored in the second and fourth, both times on solo home-runs by Yasmany Tomas, his 20th and 21st of the season.

With very similar lines for both starters - Shipley and Chase Anderson both went six, allowing two runs on four hits - this was then turned over to the bullpens. They did their job the rest of the way, with good defensive plays for the home and visiting outfielders keeping the scored tied through the end of regulation. The Diamondbacks 'pen threw five scoreless frames, which kept the game going until the 11th. There, Paul Goldschmidt and Jake Lamb singled to lead the inning off, and one out later, David Peralta reached on an error, loading the bases. Welington Castillo then worked a walk, and the four-game losing streak was at an end.
