The Arizona offense got off to a quick start against San Francisco in Scottsdale. CF Jarrod Dyson singled, taking second on an error, and after another single by 3B Eduardo Escobar, Dyson came across for the first run of the game. The D-backs advantage was doubled in the third inning on LF David Peralta’s first homer, coming with two outs. Robbie Ray was looking good, striking out seven of the first ten Giants he faced. But he ran into trouble in the fourth, allowing four consecutive SF batters to reach, as the Giants leveled the game, scoring twice. Still, Ray ended the day with 11 K’s over 5.1 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and a pair of walks.
Yoan Lopez tidied up the sixth inning, but the Giants took the lead in the seventh on a solo home-run off Archie Bradley. That was the end of the day's scoring, neither side being able to do anything the rest of the way. Robbie Scott loaded the bases with one out in the eighth, but something called a Michael Kohn got a double play. Escobar had two of the D-backs nine hits, while C Alex Avila singled and walked.
Tomorrow. the D-backs face the Brewers in the final game for the year at Salt River Fields, with a slightly earlier than usual start, at 12:10 pm. Zack Godley is the scheduled starter for Arizona.
