Diamondbacks 2, Dodgers 3

A couple of defensive shortfalls and a failure to take advantage of opportunities ended the Diamondbacks four-game winning streak at Chase Field.

The Dodgers struck for two runs in the first. A lead-off double came in to score as Yasmany Tomas made an underwhelming effort on a fly ball to right-field, and that runner then scored on a passed ball by Welington Castillo. Zack Greinke settled in after that, and didn't suffer anything like the same fate as when he faced Los Angeles in Dodger Stadium. The only run he allowed in the remainder of his six inning stint, came when Jean Segura threw the ball away as he attempted to turn a double play. Greinke was charged with three runs on four hits and four walks with four strikeouts, but only one of the runs was earned.

The Arizona bullpen tossed a trio of scoreless innings, but the offense was unable to take advantage of its opportunities, going hitless with runners in scoring position. The first run for the Diamondbacks came on a bases-loaded groundout by Mitch Haniger in the second inning. That was it until the ninth inning, when Chris Owings tripled, and came home on a sacrifice fly from Paul Goldschmidt, to make it a one-run game, but Arizona could pull no closer. Welington Castillo and Brandon Drury each reached base three times on a hit and a pair of walks, and Haniger drew two bases on balls.
