Manager Lovullo misses Diamondbacks game with illness
PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo missed Friday night's game against the San Francisco Giants due to illness, the club announced before first pitch.

Godley matched a career high with 10 strikeouts, leading the Diamondbacks over the Texas Rangers 6-0 to leap ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks brought back a familiar sidearm right-hander and acquired a left-hander who happened to be just down the hall in a pair of trade deadline moves designed to bolster the bullpen.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jon Jay is getting into a more of a groove in his second month with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Obtained from Kansas City on June 8, Jay has come out of a slump that started in late June and extended into July.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Colorado Rockies scored 17 runs in winning their first two games in Arizona over the weekend.
Then they ran in to Zack Greinke.
The Arizona ace shut down one of baseball's most powerful offenses on Sunday in a 6-1 victory that snapped the Rockies' seven-game winning streak.
"Zack came out on a day when we could have been flat-lined and picked us up," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "And we jumped on his back and he carried us a long way today."
ATLANTA (AP) — Arizona manager Torey Lovullo asked his team for a strong finish before the All-Star break.

Godley helps Diamondbacks beat Padres 3-1
PHOENIX (AP) — Zack Godley followed one of his worst outings of the season with perhaps his best. Perfect timing for Arizona, too.
Godley pitched six effective innings in his 10th win, helping the Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 3-1 on Friday night.
Arizona improved to 2-6 on its 10-game homestand and regained sole possession of first place in the NL West from the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost 3-2 to the Angels.
