[May 08, 2014]  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.
