Diamondbacks 8, Brewers 1: Tonight's Turning Points

Not many surprises here:

1) Paul Goldschmidt's fifth inning grand slam: -.150 WPA (Video)

The Brewers were one out away from getting out of the inning and maintaining a 3-1 deficit when Shaun Marcum hung a pitch over the middle and Goldschmidt hit his second homer of the series, giving Arizona a 7-1 lead.

2) Miguel Montero's third inning single: -.109 WPA (Video)

After getting Willie Bloomquist to ground out to lead off the inning, Shaun Marcum walked the next two batters he faced. That put a runner in scoring position for Montero, who gave the Diamondbacks a 3-1 lead with an RBI single.

3) Corey Hart's third inning home run: +.100 WPA (Video)

Hart led off the third inning with a home run to left center, cutting Arizona's lead in half at 2-1. Unfortunately, after this the Brewers didn't collect another hit until the ninth.

4) Miguel Montero's first inning double: -.100 WPA (Video)

Willie Bloomquist led off the game with a single, but the Brewers were one out away from getting out of the inning unscathed when Montero doubled to right and plated the game's first run.

5) Paul Goldschmidt's first inning single: -.082 WPA (Video)

Goldschmidt followed Montero to the plate with two outs in the first and singled to right to bring him home.
