With two outs in the fourth, Orlando Arcia hit a single to right as he also collected a RBI. It wasn’t enough as the Milwaukee Brewers fell to the D-Backs.
Box Score – Arizona Diamondbacks 3, Milwaukee Brewers
It was just Arcia’s third major league game and his eighth at-bat in the big leagues. On finally getting his first career hit with the MilwuakMilwaukees the prospect had this to say:
“I’m very happy,” Arcia said. “I finally got what I wanted, that first hit. You just have to thank God about it and move on, hopefully get more.”
“He swung the bat very well tonight. That was good to see,” Counsell said.
Chase Anderson got the nod to start on the mound, going up against his former team. The starter pitched six quality innings, giving up just two runs in that frame. After the game, he had this to say about his performance:
“It was fun, you know? I’m very familiar with the surroundings, obviously. … But the only time I’ve been in [the visitors’] clubhouse was for FanFest, when fans come in here. So it’s a little bit different.
Arcia’s RBI tied the game at 1-1 in the fourth, but the D-Backs would regain the lead in the bottom frame of the fourth. The Milwaukee Brewers weren’t done as Keon Broxton hit a solo shot homer in the seventh to tie the game.
The D-Backs would eventually win in 11, as Blaine Boyer gave up a walk with the bases loaded. Making in D-Backs 3, Cream City 2.
The Milwaukee Brewers continue the series tonight at 7:10 CT as Matt Garza squares off against lefty Patrick Corbin. Garza hasn’t been playing the greatest since coming back to Cream City, but he has had two quality starts, including one against the D-Backs.
