This was a pitching duel early, the game remaining scoreless through the middle of the fifth. The Diamondbacks broke through there, scoring four times: two came home on David Peralta’s single, and later in the inning, bloop singles by Paul Goldschmidt and J.D. Martinez each drove in a run [Goldschmidt, in his first game for a week, went 1-for-4 with that RBI] Two more runs were added the next time Arizona was up: Daniel Descalso got his 10th homer of the year, and a Chris Iannetta RBI single made is 6-0 to the Diamondbacks after six.

Zack Godley retired 16 in a row after a leadoff single in the first inning, but eventually flagged a little in the seventh, allowing a two-run homer to Wil Myers. He held San Diego to four hits and no walks, striking out nine over seven innings. Arizona went into the ninth 7-2 up, but Andrew Chafin and Fernando Rodney combined to allow six runs while retiring one batter, in a disastrous meltdown. The D-backs left the bases loaded, and have their first multi-game losing streak since the Twins series.
