Astros 5, Diamondbacks 4

The Diamondbacks predictably couldn’t hit Verlander and Greinke had to pitch in the 7th inning for lack of a bullpen as the D-backs fall. A late rally of 3 runs in the 9th was not enough. At this point in the season, a late-season winning rally will probably fall short as well. At least, the D-backs showed their fans something this year, unlike the Arizona Cardinals who might as well not even show up.
