Boxscore

The Diamondbacks outhit the Brewers 10-9. But that was all they were able to beat Milwaukee in.

The Brewers jumped out to early 1-0 and 3-1 leads after a solo Carlos Gomez home run to lead off the top of the first inning and, surprisingly enough, a two-run homer off the bat of Martin Maldonado in the second inning. The Diamondbacks would keep it close with a run of their own in the first and two more in the third.

Then Milwaukee decided enough was enough. A Khris Davis sacrifice fly in the fifth gave the Brewers the lead, a four-run sixth inning sealed it. That sixth inning featured a two-run home run by Jean Segura. Segura, in his familiar second spot in the order, ended up with a couple hits in this game along with a stolen base.

Carlos Gomez was the star of this game offensively, though. He reached base in all five of his plate appearances, going 2-2 with three walks. Remember when he couldn't even manage a .300 OBP. Now he's all of a sudden drawing three walks in a game. I like it.

Maldonado, who also has not been known for his bat, also reached base three times with two runs and two RBI.

Meanwhile, Matt Garza was just fine in this game. He didn't stand out, but he wasn't bad. He allowed eight hits and a pair of walks while giving up three runs in six innings. It's a quality start, but it wasn't the most quality of quality starts. It was good enough for a Brewers win, though, when the offense actually manages something like they did today.

The Brewers and Diamondbacks will play another tomorrow. First pitch is at 7:10 CT.
