Diamondbacks rally from early deficit, win series over Braves: By the Numbers

Early in Wednesday afternoon’s rubber match, it appeared the Braves would run away way with the game and the series over the Diamondbacks.

A Freddy Freeman home run, his third of the series, staked the visitors to a 6-0 lead in the second inning, and at that point it would have been understandable if the D-backs folded up shop and called it a day.

But they didn’t.

Arizona chipped away with one run in the second, two in the third, one each in the fifth and sixth and then three in the seventh. They tacked on one more in the eighth, and when it was all over, the D-backs left Chase Field with a 9-8 victory.

Here’s a look at the series clinching win, by the numbers:

0

D-backs reliever Addison Reed pitched a clean inning Wednesday, allowing zero hits, zero walks and zero runs. Since being demoted from the closer’s role following a blown save on May 13, the right-hander has pitched 10 innings, allowing just five hits and two runs.

2

In 15 appearances before being named the team’s closer, Brad Ziegler had allowed zero home runs. In 11 since getting the nod, he’s surrendered two — including one to A.J. Pierzynski in the ninth inning Wednesday. Ziegler is five for six in save opportunities since the bullpen switch.

4

D-backs reliever Andrew Chafin earned his fourth win with one inning of two hit, zero run baseball. That total ties him with starter Rubby De La Rosa for tops on the team.

9

After scoring just one run against Atlanta starter Alex Wood Monday night, the D-backs combined to score nine against Shelby Miller (4) and Mike Foltynewicz (5) over the next two games. They also tallied six runs against the Braves’ bullpens in the two victories.

12

The D-backs pounded out 12 hits Wednesday afternoon, with Yasmany Tomás’ three leading the way. The only Arizona starters not to record at least one hit were Ender Inciarte, Paul Goldschmidt and Cliff Pennington.

15

Arizona and Atlanta combined to leave 15 runners on base after batting six-for-22 (.272) with runners in scoring position.

6

The six run deficit the D-backs erased in order to win ties a franchise record for largest comeback.
