Diamondbacks 6, Rangers 4: Goldy Leads Offense, Corbin Quiets the Rangers

Goldschmidt got the game started on the right foot, and it just kept getting better from there. It didn’t take long for the Diamondbacks to get on the board in Arlington, and it came from a familiar source. With one out, Paul Goldschmidt worked a 2-0 count against Yovani Gallardo and deposited the third pitch into the seats for his 27th home run of the season. 1-0 Diamondbacks They kept it going in the second inning as well. A single from Steven Souza Jr. and a double from Ketel Marte to move him to third started the inning, setting things up for Daniel Descalso. He grounded out to first...

The offense went quiet, and the D-backs had to settle for a split against Los Angeles. The D-backs took the lead in the second innings, on Steven Souza Jr’s third home-run of the year, a solo shot. However, the Giants rallied to tie the game at one in the third. And after Ketel Marte’s RBI single in the fourth gave Arizona another lead, San Francisco knotted things up at two in the sixth. That was Robbie Ray’s last inning, as he was replaced by Yoshihisa Hirano with two outs. Ray went 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits and four walks with eight strikeouts. After Andrew...
