The D-backs wasted no time in putting the three-game losing streak behind them, as they opened a home-stand at Chase Field tonight. Jake Lamb had a two-RBI hit in the first inning, followed it up with another two-run hit in the second inning, and the latter was immediately followed by Chris Owings reaching a career high with his seventh home-run. That three-run shot gave Arizona a 7-0 lead after two innings, and effectively ended this as a meaningful contest. Gregor Blanco had two hits and a walk for the Diamondbacks.
Robbie Ray’s scoreless streak ended when Hunter Renfroe homered with two outs in the top of the fourth, but not before it had become the third-longest in franchise history, trailing only a couple by Brandon Webb. There was no further damage, and Ray exited with two outs in the seventh, allowing one run on three hits and two walks, striking out a season-high 11. Tom Wilhelmsen tided up the seventh and worked the eighth, before allowing another home-run to Renfroe in the ninth,
