A very solid outing by Patrick Corbin, who went six innings, allowing one run on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. The sole run against Corbin came in the second, when an RBI double by Austin Slater gave the visiting Giants a 1-0 lead. Meanwhile, Andrew Suarez of San Francisco was proving every bit as tough an opponent, with the D-backs having trouble making hard contact. He too allowed one run over six innings, scattering seven hits - a remarkable five of those being infield hits. Arizona’s run came in the bottom of the sixth, Jake Lamb’s sacrifice fly scoring Ketel Marte to tie the game at one.
Unfortunately, it didn’t last, with Andrew Chafin immediately allowing a run in the top of the seventh, to give San Francisco the lead back. The D-backs were unable to get anything going against the Giants’ bullpen, not managing a base-runner. Though congratulations to Yoshihisa Hirano, who set a club record with his 25th consecutive scoreless appearance. Turambar will be along with some kind of leisure-cap in a bit!
