Last Night’s Win

Diamondbacks 13, Phillies 7: Corbin dallies, multi-passes lead to victory

Oh, ye of little faith! 7-0 deficit? No problem!

[Alex Weiner | Arizona Sports] D-backs finish largest comeback in team history in Corbin Carroll’s debut

“Arizona Diamondbacks right fielder Corbin Carroll dug in with the bases loaded in a 7-7 game during the fifth inning against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night.

Just hours after getting called up to the big leagues, Carroll had an opportunity to give Arizona its first lead of the night after it trailed 7-0.

On a 2-2 count, the D-backs’ top prospect bent down and sliced a low breaking ball the other way, into the left-center field gap at Chase Field.”

The D-backs overcame a seven-run deficit to beat the Phillies, 13-7, in Corbin Carroll’s big league debut on Monday night at Chase Field.”

[Nick Piecoro | Arizona Republic] Corbin Carroll’s double in debut caps comeback, Diamondbacks beat Phillies

“Carroll’s first career hit was a tiebreaking, two-run double that helped the Diamondbacks execute the largest come-from-behind win in club history, a 13-7 shocker over the Philadelphia Phillies, who led by seven runs before even allowing their first hit.”

“The 22-year-old outfielder beats out Archie Bradley (No. 5, 2014), Trevor Bauer (No. 6, 2012) and Justin Upton (No. 7, 2006 and 2007) at the top of the archival rankings. And now he’s headed to the Majors, making him arguably the most highly anticipated debutant since Arizona’s franchise began in 1998.”

[Alex Weiner | Arizona Sports] D-backs’ Torey Lovullo calls Corbin Carroll’s rise a story of development

“The D-backs called up Carroll, their top prospect, Monday ahead of a game against the Philadelphia Phillies after the 22-year-old had played only 49 minor league games and none above Single-A heading into the season.”

Rest of the West

Dodgers defeat the Marlins 3-2, but lose starter Tony Gonsolin to the dreaded “right forearm strain”. Gonsolin was their most consistent performing starter who had been healthy up to this point, which could cripple their rotation for the postseason if he has an extended absence.

Padres edge out the Giants 6-5 at AT&T park. The Padres built up a 6-2 lead, which they needed to withstand a late Giants rally. Former Diamondback Brandon Drury hit a big home run in this game.

The Rockies had the day off, as they travel to Atlanta to play the hottest team in baseball in the Atlanta Braves.
