Big inning, retaliation fuels Brewers' defeat of D-backs: By The Numbers
Neither of those things changed by the end of the night.
Evan Marshall and the Diamondbacks found themselves in the midst of a dramatic seventh inning, in which Ryan Braun was hit, the pitcher was ejected and Jonathan Lucroy hit his second home run of the night -- a grand slam.
The Brewers took a 7-4 lead on the slam and didn't turn back, though allowing a run in the ninth inning on Roger Kieschnick's first career home run.
Here's a look at Tuesday's heated contest by the numbers:
The day after recording his first career hit for the Diamondbacks, recent call-up Roger Kieschnick hit his first career home run Tuesday. It was also the 46th all-time to land in the pool in right centerfield at Chase Field.
In 2011, when Braun's Brewers beat the Diamondbacks in the National League Division Series, the slugger had a 1.460 on-base-plus-slugging percentage with four doubles, a home run, four RBI and a .500 batting average. Last season, when Braun was suspended for violating Major League Baseball's steroid policy, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson was frank about his lack of respect for his then-opponent. That all came to a head Tuesday.
Though something of an afterthought by game's end, Diamondbacks starting pitcher Mike Bolsinger tossed the second quality start of his career, going 6.1 innings while allowing three runs on seven hits and striking out six.
The grand slam given up by Brad Ziegler marked just the third time the Diamondbacks relief pitcher has allowed a home run to a right-handed batter in his career.
Though failing to record a hit for the first time in his last 11 games, Paul Goldschmidt reached base three times -- scoring twice -- on a trio of walks. It was the ninth career time the Diamondbacks first baseman has accomplished as much in his career.
Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero has reached base safely in 18 of his last 20 games.
Ziegler has faced batters with the bases loaded 76 times over the course of his eight-year career, but Jonathan Lucroy's grand slam Tuesday was the first time the submarine-throwing right-hander has ever allowed a home run in that situation.
