Diamondbacks 10, Giants 4

The cure for what ailed the D-backs offense was clearly a trip to San Francisco

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

The D-backs offense reached double digits for the second day in a row, though fell six runs short of yesterday’s tally. Again, however, the damage started early, with Arizona scoring twice, including once on a Kevin Cron sacrifice fly double-play [just go find the video, it’ll be quicker...]. A three-run third and a four-run fourth kept things going, including Cron’s first major-league hit, a double - he could easily have had three. Ketel Marte, Adam Jones and Tim Locastro all had three hits. The D-backs last reached double digits in consecutive games against the Padres and Marlins last September. They also tied the record for runs in back-to-back games, which is 28, most recently on June 4-5, 2014.

Taylor Clarke got his first major-league win as well, allowing three runs over 6.1 innings, on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts. He probably deserved better, two of the runs coming after Clarke left the game, courtesy of Andrew Chafin. Archie Bradley and Greg Holland tidied things up, and Arizona will go for the sweep tomorrow afternoon. We should have a guest recap, but I am a little concerned, since I haven’t had a confirmation. So this may be all you get...
