A 7th inning which took over 40 minutes proved decisive as the D-backs won their fourth straight on the road.

The D-backs had done little against Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff, getting one run over his six innings. But they fare much better against the home bullpen, sending nine to the plate the first inning they say them, and scoring four. Daniel Descalso had a go-ahead RBI, then Paul Goldschmidt added a two-run double and Brandon Drury an RBI single. The Phillies threatened in the bottom half and it took three Arizona pitchers to negotiate it. Goldschmidt helped end that, snaring a liner at first, on a full count pitch with the bases loaded.

Zack Godley didn’t quite stick around for the win, but pitched another very solid outing for Arizona. He gave up one run over 5.2 innings, on five hits with three walks and eight strikeouts. In general the D-backs were helped by the Phillies’ lack of clutch as they went 0-for-5—ith runners in scoring position. Goldschmidt and Descalso each had two hits, and Jake Lamb reached base four times, on a hit and three walks. T.J. McFarland worked the final two scoreless innings.
