It appears a trip to the spa by the bay of San Francisco was just what the doctor ordered for Paul Goldschmidt. After a three-hit game yesterday, he got his first four-hit outing in more than a year, but it wasn’t enough as the Diamondbacks lost two of three on the road from the Giants. San Francisco took the lead in the first, on a Pablo Sandoval home-run, but Arizona took the lead on a two-run double by Daniel Descalso, coming after the Giants’ catcher dropped a foul ball. The home team came back to tie things up, only for RBI doubles from Goldschmidt in the fifth and sixth innings to push Arizona back ahead.
Clay Buchholz had another solid outing, allowing two runs over six innings. He gave up sevne hits and a walk, but also struck out seven, throwing 92 pitches. The A-bullpen came on in relief, with Yoshihisa Hirano and Archie Bradley posting scoreless innings, but Brad Boxberger allowed a two-run, two-out homer to push us into the tenth. The sun then apparently caused Jarrod Dyson to miss a fly-ball in center, and a questionable decision to pitch to Brandon Crawford allowed him to deliver a walk-off single. Chris Owings had a hit and two walks, while Descalso, Jarrod Dyson, Jake Lamb, and Nick Ahmed all reached base safely twice, on a hit and a walk.
