Merrill Kelly got the start for the D-backs; he would go six innings, allowing three earned runs on just three hits. But it was four walks that allowed the Phillies to pounce on the Diamondbacks early.

After falling behind 3-0, the Diamondbacks offense looked dead in the water. Ranger Suarez tossed seven shutout innings, allowing only four hits.

It was when the Phillies turned towards the bullpen that the D-backs were finally able to put some runs on the board.

The D-backs would tie the game at three with a monster two-out 427-foot blast from Christian Walker in the 8th inning.

Unfortunately for Arizona, these would be the only runs for them on the night. Despite a wonderful performance from the bullpen, zero runs in the bottom of the tenth would ultimately end it.

However, this is not to say they did not have their chances. The Diamondbacks left runners on first and second base in the 8th inning, a runner on second in the ninth, and two more in the 10th.

It will be a quick turnaround for the series finale tomorrow at 12:40 PM. With hopes of ending the series in a tie, the Diamondbacks will have rookie Ryne Nelson on the mound up against the Phillies’ Aaron Nola.
