Arizona 5, Philadelphia 4

Patrick Corbin had his longest outing in a while now, pitching six full innings. He started with three perfect innings, but then started hanging pitches and the results were predictable. Jake Lamb clanked a hot shot off the heel of his glove in the sixth, leading to two unearned runs. However, Gregor Blanco tied the game up with a two-run homer in the seventh, and Jake Lamb found redemption by driving the winning run home three batters later.

A.J. Pollock will start his rehab assignment in Reno today and is currently expected to only need 10-15 at-bats before returning to the 25-man roster. That would put Pollock on track to rejoin the team when Arizona returns home to Phoenix to face the Phillies.
