The Arizona Diamondbacks are at home to the St. Louis Cardinals for a three-game series, after a 5 to1 game one loss the Dbacks look to get back into the series with their supposed ace on the mound.
Madison Bumgarner had another rough outing in his 18th start of the year, recording 93 pitches in 5.1 innings, giving up seven hits, and two home runs to Albert Pujols.
The game was tied through five innings at 4-4, and then Nootbaar tripled to right, Nootbaar scored on a fielding error by right fielder Varsho, Edman scored and Knizner scored.
That made the score 7-4, but not for long.
One thing that has been consistent with this years DBacks, has been the fight until the end.
Playing a team that is on another level, shows the Diamondbacks how far away they truly are from being a playoff team.
The night was a night of breaking records, as Albert Pujols hit home runs 691 and 692, leaving him only 8 away from 700 and capping off his bid for the HOF.
Paul Goldschmidt added to the beat down, returning to Chase field and did what he usually did in that stadium.
Goldie hit the teams second grand slam of the night in the top of the 9th, and that was his 100th RBI on the season and keeps him in the close running for MVP.
The Dbacks had gotten within one run with a late 8th inning rally, but up until that point they just could not find a away to stop the Cardinals offense.
St. Louis finished the game with an 8 run top of the 9th inning, and concluded things with a 16-7 final score.
