The best team in the National League dropped two out of three games at home to the worst team in the National League as the Arizona Diamondbacks took the rubber game Wednesday afternoon beating the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2. Paul Goldschmidt homered for the second straight day, a two run shot and that was plenty for Bronson Arroyo who pitched into the 8th, giving up a run on five hits. Milwaukee helped by grounding into four double plays. A Jonathan Lucroy ground out plated a run in the first to give the Brewers the lead. Goldschmidt took Wily Peralta deep in the third. Peralta (4-2) lasted six innings, giving up just the two runs, but allowed 11 hits. In the 8th, the Diamondbacks got a huge insurance run thanks to a pair of Brewer mistakes. Will Smith uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Arroyo to race from first to third and he came home on a Lyle Overbay error. In the bottom of the 8th, Carlos Gomez bounced into a bases loaded, inning ending double play. Overbay delivered a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth. The Brewers (22-13) have dropped four out of five games and their lead in the NL Central is down to 4 over St. Louis. After an off day Thursday, Milwaukee welcomes the New York Yankees for a weekend, interleague series beginning Friday night.
