I'm so confused...

Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

2:15pm. The Diamondbacks score their sixth run, and end the fourth inning with a 6-0 lead. Robbie Ray is throwing a perfect game.

4:01pm. The Dodgers score their ninth run of the game, to take a two-run lead in the eighth inning.

Seriously, what the hell happened?

The answer? The Diamondbacks bullpen couldn't throw strikes. Randall Delgado in particular, who walked the two batters he faced with two outs in the sixth. Both scored. The second was with the bases loaded, and came in as the tying run on Adrian Gonzalez's bases-clearing double. Enrique Burgos then walked the Los Angeles lead-off hitter in the eighth, and he ended up being the go-ahead run.

With the D-backs 9-7 down in the middle of the eighth, hope seemed scant. But Chris Owings tied things up with  a two-run homer. Arizona left the bases loaded there and the winning run on third in the ninth. But in the twelfth, Brandon Drury won it with an RBI single.

The long recap may be a while. We've lost the wireless here, so have to go to Best Buy.
