Both starting pitchers did their job, and so this one was decided late. Very late.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Milwaukee Brewers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Zack Godley was excellent through the front five innings, blanking the Brewers almost entirely and keeping them off the board. He needed to be that good, as the D-backs’ hitters were stifled almost as much by the Milwaukee starter. However, they had the game’s only run, courtesy of Jake Lamb’s 14th home-run of the year, an utter bomb into the second deck at Miller Park. Godley seemed to flag in the sixth, and was lucky to get out of his final inning, a wild pitch almost scoring the tying run, becoming the third out instead.

That play was upheld on appeal, leading to home manager Craig Counsell being ejected from the game. But if his intent was to fire up his players, it worked, as the second batter faced by the D-backs bullpen in the seventh tied the game up, homering off Jorge De La Rosa. Andrew Chafin also had a tough outing, allowing an RBI single in the eighth which gave the Brewers the lead. However, with two outs in the ninth, Chris Iannetta homered to tie the game back up, and the D-backs scored two more in the 10th, on a wild pitch and Lamb double.
