Four home runs propel Diamondbacks over Brewers: By the Numbers

Four home runs propelled the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 7-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday night.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak and showcased four-baggers by Ender Inciarte, David Peralta and A.J. Pollock, respectively.

Paul Goldschmidt lent three doubles to the effort and Addison Reed pitched 1.2 shutout innings with two strikeouts in relief. He bailed out Oliver Perez, who loaded up the bases in the seventh with only one out — Reed earned his second win of the season for his effort.

Arizona struck first off back-to-back two-out doubles by Goldschmidt and Peralta. Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez hit a home run off D-backs starting pitcher Rubby De La Rosa in the bottom of the first to even the score.

Inciarte homered in the third inning and was followed by Peralta’s two-out home run, but Milwaukee’s Adam Lind hit a two-run dinger of his own to make it 3-3. Lind tied it up again in the fifth after Yasmany Tomas’ groundout double pushed Arizona ahead.

Ahmed’s solo homer came in the eighth inning to break the final tie, and the floodgates crashed open with Pollock’s two-run shot to end it, 7-5.

Here were the numbers:
