Arizona were not quite able to pull off a fourteenth consecutive win, the eight-run hole dug by Patrick Corbin being too much for the offense. They certainly gave it a shot, though. After three scoreless innings, San Diego scored six runs with two outs in the fourth, and chased Corbin with a further pair of scores in the fifth. Considering how good Corbin had been for the past montb, this was certainly an unpleasant surprise.

At 8-0, this seemed over, but the Diamondbacks did not go quietly. Two-run homers by Rey Fuentes and J.D. Martinez keyed a comeback which had the tying run in scoring position, just four outs later. However, the one last clutch hit to tie the game up eluded Arizona, and San Diego added two runs in the seventh, to provide insurance down the stretch. With both Milwaukee and St. Louis winning, Arizona's magic number for a postseason spot remains unchanged at 13.
