The Arizona Diamondbacks (32-39, 4th NL West) came alive against the Philadelphia Phillies (30-40, 4th NL East) yesterday as Archie Bradley got his first win for the Diamondbacks since may, allowing only one unearned run over six innings in a 5-1 win. They will look to go for the sweep today at 12:05.
“Not a whole lot to be happy about except for (Zach) Eflin,” Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. “It was a good confidence booster for him, as well as the team. We were in the game until the ninth inning, so that’s a step in the right direction. However, the three hits, once again is our bane.”
Elfin pitched five and a half innings allowing only two Diamondbacks runs.
