A Kyle Jensen home-run put the Diamondbacks on the board in the bottom of the second inning, and was the first run Rich Hill had conceded in his four starts as a Los Angeles Dodger. Chris Owings drove in another run in the third, but the talking point came in the fifth. Hill tried to bunt his way on, but Archie Bradley’s pitch was inside - as Hill ran up to first, he was yelling at Bradley, who was standing for none of it and yelled back. Both benches emptied, but nothing happened, although both sides were warned. Los Angeles scored in the frame, but the D-backs blew the game open in the bottom of the sixth, scoring five times, topped off by Mitch Haniger’s three-run homer.
Bradley looked really good through six, but ran out of gas in the seventh, giving up two more runs before being lifted with no outs. He scattered nine hits and two walks with seven strikeouts. Patrick Corbin came in and picked up another nine-out save for the Diamondbacks - this seems to be a recent trend! He looked very good, retiring all nine batters he faced, with four strikeouts. There were only six hits for the Arizona hitters tonight, with Jensen and Tuffy Gosewisch each getting a hit and a walk.
