A solid outing from Archie Bradley and a three-run homer from Socrates Brito were the main forces behind the Diamondbacks' win this afternoon, to take the series in Denver.

The team trades runs in the first. Arizona scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Paul Goldschmidt, only for Colorado to level it. They then took the lead with another run in the fourth, but that was all that Archie Bradley would allow, in a very acceptable outing at Coors Field. He worked six innings, with those two runs allowed on six hits and two walks, with six strikeouts. The bullpen was.. good enough. Patrick Corbin worked two innings, and it looked easy with a five-run lead for Arizona in the ninth. However, Corbin and Daniel Hudson combined to bring the trying run to the plate with one out, before Huddy struck out D.J. LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez for the win.

Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks put up a nice crooked number in the seventh, with a four spot. They tied the game on a Brandon Drury single, and Socrates Brito then delivered his third home-run of the season, with two on base. A two-run Drury single in the eighth and a Chris Owings RBI double completed the scoring for Arizona. Jean Segura had a three-hit afternoon, and also walked. Owings and Drury picked up two hits apiece, and Jake Lamb got a single and a base on balls.
