With David Peralta mysteriously MIA and Torey Lovullo working with a short bench, the Diamondback offense once again struck early, this time with a Paul Goldschmidt 2 run homer in the first. They scored 2 more in the second, and would knock Joey Lucchesi out of the box in the 4th, scoring their 5th run. Nick Ahmed was ejected arguing balls and strikes in the 3rd.

Meanwhile Robbie Ray struggled with his control and pitch counts once again, walking 5, going to full count 10 times, and allowing the Padres back in the game by giving up a run in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th. The run in the 5th scored off a controversial homerun to left by Eric Hosmer that surely looked like fan interference on the replay. With 107 pitches thrown and still unable to complete 5 innings Ray was finally pulled.

A bases loaded double from Steven Souza Jr. put the Diamondbacks up 8-3. Homeruns from Eduardo Escobar and Padres Manuel Margot closed out the scoring, for a 9-4 final. Full recap may take a while with this one.
