IIn what seemed very much like a rerun of last night, Arizona broke out the bats early, providing a helping of first inning tacos, and largely cruised to victory. Paul Goldschmidt got the D-backs on the board with a two-run single, with a Jake Lamb double, and Chris Herrmann's homer with a man aboard completing a five-run first. Yasmany Tomas drove in a pair in the second, and Lamb added another RBI in the fourth. A wild pitch completed things in the ninth.
Meanwhile, Robbie Ray was almost as good, if less dominating, as last time he faced San Diego. He threw 7.2 innings of scoreless ball, giving up just two hits. Ray walked three and struck out six. Tom Wilhelmsen escaped with the bases loaded in the eighth. J.J. Hoover came in for the ninth, and like last night, Arizona was not quite able to complete the shutout. It was still the D-backs' fifth win in a row, and puts them one game behind the Rockies.
