Big First Inning Helps Propel D-Backs Over Reds 5 - 3

The Diamondbacks used a big four run first inning to help Wade Miley get through some shaky innings of his own en route to a 5 - 3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Miley gave up three runs off of six hits through the first two innings before settling down to throw 3.2 scoreless innings. He left the game after 5.2 IP, eight hits, three earned runs, one walk, and six strikeouts.

Miguel Montero fueled much of the Diamondbacks offense against Bronson Arroyo throughout the night, hitting a double that cleared the bases with the bases loaded in the first inning. He added his fourth RBI of the night with a deep home run to right field in the fourth inning. Montero racked up another double in the top of the ninth inning to end the night 3 - 4.

Justin Upton also went 3 -4 with a RBI, a stolen base, and a walk.

The bullpen combined for 3.1 innings of one hit ball with J.J. Putz shutting the door to record his 18th save on the season.

Tomorrows game features Trevor Bauer (1-1, 5.40 ERA) going up against Reds ace Johnny Cueto (10-5, 2.39 ERA). First pitch is at 4:10 PST.
