D-backs use three home runs, youth to come back and beat Brewers: By The Numbers
On Tuesday, the Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander gave up four hits -- and five runs (one earned) -- in the opening frame.
His offense, however, was unfazed by the deficit, chipping away at the Brewers' 5-2 lead before ultimately using a three-run eighth inning to top them, 7-5.
What's more? The Brewers had as many hits in innings 2-9 as they tallied in the first -- four. And they didn't get past second base after the first inning either.
The Diamondbacks' pitching efforts were perhaps highlighted by rookie Evan Marshall, who was called up from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day. The hard-throwing right-hander ended up with the win after tossing 1.1 scoreless innings -- spread between the sixth and seventh innings of the game -- with the help of two strikeouts.
Here's a look back at the win by the numbers:
Paul Goldschmidt raised his batting average to .342 on Tuesday, thanks to a 3-for-5 night at the plate which included a home run, a pair of RBI and runs scored and a double. He was a triple shy of the cycle and he now has a .939 on-base-plus-slugging percentage on the year.
Recently-announced NL Rookie of the Month, Chris Owings, hit his first career major league home run Tuesday with a sixth inning solo shot to leftfield.
The Diamondbacks' three home runs -- from Goldschmidt, Owings and Aaron Hill -- were a season-high for a game this season.
The Diamondbacks' seven runs scored on Tuesday tied for the second most they've scored in a single game all season. In their highest-scoring game, on March 31 when they scored eight runs in their Chase Field opener against the San Francisco Giants, they lost 9-8.
Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero has reached base safely in 16 of his last 17 games. On Tuesday, he was 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI. Since April 17, Montero is hitting .321 with a .458 on-base percentage and 11 RBI.
Marshall has allowed just one earned run in 18 innings pitched between the Triple-A and major league levels this season, good for a 0.50 ERA. On Tuesday, in his major league debut, the right-hander was practically perfect by not allowing a baserunner and getting four outs with 19 pitches -- 15 strikes. Marshall topped out at 95 mph with his fastball Tuesday, throwing seven four-seamers with such a velocity. He became the third Diamondbacks relief pitcher to earn a win in his major league debut with the outing.
