Diamondbacks 3, Brewers 2: Bronson
Arroyo was dominant through 7 1/3 innings and Paul Goldschmidt homered
as visiting Arizona took the rubber game against Milwaukee.—
Arroyo (3-2) allowed only an unearned run and five hits - all
singles - while striking out four to continue his turnaround from a
rough start to the season. Goldschmidt also singled as part of a
14-hit attack for the Diamondbacks, who improved to 11-4 in their
last 15 games against the Brewers.
Wily Peralta (4-2) let up two runs on a career high-tying 11 hits
while striking out three in six innings to get the loss. Carlos
Gomez had a pair of hits and scored the only run for Milwaukee,
which is 6-13 in its last 19 games versus Arizona at home.
Gomez reached on a bunt single on the first pitch of the game from
Arroyo and moved to third on an error before scampering home when
Jonathan Lucroy bounced into a double play. Martin Prado led off the
top of the third with a base hit and Goldschmidt followed with a
shot over the wall in left for his seventh blast and a 2-1 lead.
Arroyo helped himself out in the eighth by reaching on a base hit
and coming around to score on a wild pitch and an error to make it
3-1. Milwaukee loaded the bases in the bottom half against Arroyo
and reliever Brad Ziegler, but Gomez hit into a rally-killing double
play and Addison Reed picked up his 10th save after allowing a run
in the ninth.
