This one looked like it was going to be a laugher early on. Four batters into the game, the D-backs had a 3-0 lead, after a Paul Goldschmidt RBI triple was followed by a two-run shot off the bat of Jake Lamb. Though the White Sox got one back, the Diamondbacks responded quickly, with a solo home-run for Chris Herrmann, and the Chicago starter was lifted, with an apparent injury, after only 2.1 innings, trailing 4-1.
However, the D-backs could manage only one more run the rest of the way, and the White Sox got themselves back into it with a two-run homer off Corbin. He went six innings, scattering eight hits and a walk, while striking out five, and allowing three runs. Archie Bradley had a scoreless seventh, but Jorge De La Rosa nearly blew it, allowing Chicago to pull within one, and bequeathing a bases-loaded one out situation to J.J. Hoover. He didn’t suck, getting back to back K’s to escape, and Fernando Rodney worked a clean 1-2-3 ninth for the save.
ish95 will be along with the recap when he gets back from Chase Field!
