Have yourself a night, Chris Iannetta.

As the Arizona Diamondbacks trailed 9-8 in what had been a back-and-forth contest all night up to that point, the D-backs’ catcher came to the plate with the bases juiced.

Iannetta had already hit a home run earlier in the ballgame and had four RBI on the day. With one out and a full count, Iannetta launched a Dustin McGowan pitch onto the porch in left-center field to make it 12-9 D-backs.

Coming into the game, C.I. had 14 home runs on the season and was hitting .249. The 34-year-old had seven RBI against the Padres on June 8.

The D-backs’ franchise record for most RBI in a single game is nine, set by Erubiel Durazo in 2002.

Arizona went on to win 13-11.
