Arizona 2, San Diego 3 (11)
Zac Gallen emptied the tank to give Arizona six innings of two-run baseball, but Arizona’s offense was unable to overcome that modest total, eventually falling victim to the obscenity that is the Manfred Man in the 11th inning.

Jordan Luplow’s Wild Night
Jordan Luplow was at the center of many events in last night’s game. There was the crazy inside-the-park home run which left the outfielder gassed. There was the generous non-error which extended Zac Gallen’s third inning significantly. Then there was the outfield assist, Luplow gunning down Alfaro trying to stretch a double into a triple.
