Diamondbacks vs. Brewers: Chris Young Homers Again, Arizona Piles On

In the top of the sixth inning, the Brewers turned a 7-3 game into a 7-4 game, and very narrowly missed turning it into a 7-7 game. Spooked by how quickly runs can appear on the board, the Diamondbacks responded by scoring once in the sixth, and then twice more in the seventh.

Chris Narveson was entrusted to handle the bottom of the seventh, and he got off to a pretty crappy start by walking Paul Goldschmidt on five pitches. Up next was a guy who made an out, but up next after that was Chris Young. Chris Young followed Ryan Roberts' grand slam in the first inning with a solo home run, and in the seventh, he ripped Narveson's fourth pitch of the at bat - an inside fastball - up and over the left field fence for his second dinger of the game.

That extended Arizona's lead to 10-4, and the Brewers have but six outs remaining until they're forced to go home for a Friday Game 5. Which is better than being forced to go somewhere else for a Friday Game 5. Who doesn't love being at home!

...aaaaaand as I was writing this, Carlos Gomez lined a two-run homer in the top of the eighth. 10-6 now. See? Runs! Really fast! Randy Wolf and Joe Saunders can feel just a little bit better about themselves now.
