Phillies beat Arizona 9-8 in 10 innings for sweep
PHOENIX (AP) — Pinch-hitter Tyler Goeddel hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Philadelphia Phillies completed their first sweep at Chase Field in 10 years with a 9-8 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
The Diamondbacks went up 7-4 in the seventh inning on Paul Goldschmidt’s two-run double, but the Phillies rallied with four runs in the eighth to go up 8-7.
Jean Segura tied it in the bottom half on an infield single, but the Diamondbacks allowed Jeanmar Gomez (3-2) to escape a jam in the ninth.
Peter Bourjos, who earlier had a two-run homer, hit a two-out single off Silvino Bracho (0-2) in the 10th and moved to third on Cody Asche’s single. Goeddel followed with a line drive to right for the go-ahead run.
Brett Oberholtzer worked around a single in the 10th for his first save.
Asche had three RBIs and Cesar Hernandez finished with four of Philadelphia’s 17 hits.
Jake Lamb hit a three-run homer for Arizona, which had 15 hits.
Phillies starter Zach Eflin struggled early before settling into a rhythm.
Lamb, who hit a solo homer in Tuesday’s loss to the Phillies, hit his ninth homer in June in the first inning off the rookie right-hander, a three-run shot to center.
Segura added a sacrifice fly in the second inning, but Eflin retired 10 of the next 11 batters.
Eflin allowed four runs — three earned — on six hits and struck out three in six innings.
Arizona starter Archie Bradley was sharp in his previous two starts, allowing a run in 11 innings.
The right-hander gave up more than that in the first inning against the Phillies, when Bourjos hit a towering two-run homer to left.
Eflin hit a leadoff double against Bradley in the fifth inning for his first big league hit and later scored his first run on Asche’s double that pulled Philadelphia to 4-3.
Bradley allowed three runs and eight hits and struck out four in six innings.
Phillies: Top prospect Mark Appel, the first overall pick in the 2013 draft by Houston, is out for the season after having surgery to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.
Diamondbacks: Arizona had no update on Zack Greinke a day after the right-hander strained his left oblique and left after two innings against the Phillies. Manager Chip Hale said the team should have a better idea by Friday.
Phillies: Jeremy Hellickson could be making one of his last starts for Philadelphia against Kansas City on Friday with contending teams expected to be interested in the right-hander at the trade deadline.
Diamondbacks: RHP Shelby Miller will be making his first start at Chase Field since May 18 and third overall since returning from the DL with a sprained right index finger when he faces the San Francisco Giants on Thursday.
