So much for playing "spoiler", eh? This one lasted two pitches, as the Giants led off the game with a home-run against Zack Greinke. To our ace's credit, he did then settle down considerably, at least until the sixth inning where he walked four batters, two of whom came round to score. He ended up going six innings, allowing three runs on six hits and those four walks, with three strikeouts. The margin of defeat then showed up in the seventh, as Randall Delgado allowed a two-runs double to Hunter Pence. Jake Barrett and Enrique Burgos then worked scoreless innings for the D-backs.
The home team tied things up in the second, on a Jake Lamb triple and Brandon Drury single. They then briefly took the lead in the fifth, Welington Castillo driving in the go-ahead run. Beef then made it a two-run game with his 13th home-run in the eighth, and Socrates Brito got the tying run to the plate after he led off the bottom of the ninth with a double. That proved false hope, as the next three batters failed to trouble the scorer and the Diamondbacks had lost their sixth game in a row. Castillo, Drury and Paul Goldschmidt each got two hits,
