The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided a sweep against the Cincinnati Reds with a 9-8 victory in the series finale on Sunday.

Paul Goldschmidt broke a 5-5 tie in the fifth inning with his 17th home run of the season to give the D-backs the lead.

The offense pushed the lead to 9-5, but things got interesting in the bottom of the ninth.

Tyler Clippard walked Zack Cozart and Joey Votto before allowing a three-run bomb to Jay Bruce that cut the lead to 9-8.

The right-handed pitcher settled down after the big fly and struck out the side, in addition to a walk to Brandon Phillips, to end the ball game.

Here are the headlines from the final game of the D-backs and Reds series, by the numbers:


Yasmany Tomas, who has 15 home runs on the season, has hit multiple home runs in the same game for the fourth time this year. Other dates include: April 17 against the Padres, June 17 against the Phillies and June 24 against the Rockies. All four games have occurred in D-backs road games, which is tied for the second-most in team history in a single season.


The amount of victories that the D-backs have over the Reds in their last 13 contests.


The number of Reds starters who had a base hit off of Zach Godley. The only starter who failed to get a hit was starting pitcher Brandon Finnegan.


Tyler Clippard’s ERA has raised from 2.97 to 4.17 since July 10, as he has allowed six earned runs in 4.1 innings.


Godley became the first pitcher in D-backs history to win eight games in his first 10 career starts. On Sunday, he pitched 5.2 innings and gave up five earned runs and 10 hits, while striking out three Reds hitters. He holds an 8-2 record with 4.34 ERA in his time at the big league level.


After batting .611 in five rehab starts in Triple-A, Chris Owings holds a .111 batting average (1-for-9) in his first two games back with the D-backs.


The amount of runs scored between the two teams in the first three innings of the series finale.


Goldschmidt hit his 133rd home run of his career in the fifth inning. The home run put him in third place in D-backs history as he passed Chris Young (132) and now just trails Luis Gonzalez (224) and Steve Finley (153).
