The D-backs started their series in Philadelphia with a come from behind win.

After getting their leadoff man on base in the first three innings without success, the D-backs finally managed something in the fourth inning. Jake Lamb and Chris Owings singled, and both came around to score, giving Arizona a 2-0 lead. However, the Phillies chipped away, getting runs in the fourth and fifth to tie things up, then taking advantage of a Lamb error to score two in the sixth. That marked the end of Patrick Corbin’s night: he went six innings, allowing four runs on five hits, but half of those were unearned. He walked none and struck out five.

The D-backs wasted no time coming back from 4-2 down, courtesy of Gregor Blanco’s second home-run of the season, without an out in the seventh. They then took the lead later in the frame on a Lamb sacrifice fly. Andrew Chafin wobbled in the seventh, and had to be bailed out by Archie Bradley, but they were able to hand the ball to Fernando Rodney for another one-run save opportunity. He retired the Phillies in order, and if the Rockies lose, Arizona will in a virtual three-way tie for the lead in the NL West. Stay tuned...
