The Arizona Diamondbacks won their second series of July and sent the scuffling Cincinnati Reds back to below .500.

The Diamondbacks held on to a 5-4 win with all four of the Reds’ runs coming int he final two frames.

Here’s a look at Wednesday’s early game, by the numbers:


Earned runs allowed by D-backs pitcher Wade Miley. It’s his second scoreless outing in his last four starts after giving up at least one earned run in each of his first 19 starts. Miley had an ERA of 2.45 in six July starts.


Didi Gregorius homered on Wednesday and drove in two runs. He was the only player to have a hit in all three games of the series — he actually had multi-hit games in all three. Gregorius has hit .310 in his past 18 games with eight RBI.


The Diamondbacks were without a hit in five at-bats with a runners in scoring position. For the series, they were 4-for-17.


Closer Addison Reed made the game interesting when he allowed a three-run homer to Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco, but he ended up converting his sixth straight save opportunity. Reed also had six consecutive scoreless outings before Wednesday.


The game featured 11 walks — six from the D-backs and five from the Reds. Reds pitcher Carlos Contreras allowed two walks in one-third of an inning and threw strikes on just seven of his 21 pitches.


Outfielder David Peralta had another multi-hit game, his 20th in just 47 games in MLB.


Manager Kirk Gibson tied Bob Melvin for the most wins in franchise history with 337.
