Arizona Diamondbacks On The Verge of Sweeping Philadelphia Phillies After 7-5 Win
Don't look now, but the Diamondbacks are on the doorstep of their first series sweep of the season. And it's against one of the best teams in Major League Baseball no less.
Arizona beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5 last night at Chase Field in the second game of the series thanks to a good effort by Daniel Hudson (1-4, 5.64 ERA), who notched his first win of the year in the process.
The night started out a bit rocky for the Snakes starting pitcher, as he allowed a lead-off triple by Philadelphia's Shane Victorino, who
was then driven to the plate by a single from Placido Polanco to make things
1-0. Hudson settled things down and began dispatching the Phillies, scattering
10 hits over six innings of work and earning only three additional runs.
