Game Report: D-Backs 6, Cardinals 5 (10 innings)

Trevor Rosenthal and Seung Hwan Oh could not protect a 5-2 eighth-inning lead as the Diamondbacks rallied to beat the Cardinals Tuesday night in Arizona.

Rosenthal gave up two runs in the eighth as he allowed two hits, walked one batter and hit another. A diving catch by Randal Grichuk in left on a sacrifice fly prevented the Diamondbacks from tying the game in that inning.

They did that in the ninth, however, when David Peralta greeted Oh with a home run.

The Diamondbacks won it in the 10th against Matt Bowman on a leadoff single, a sacrifice bunt and a single by Chris Herrmann.

The loss was the 17th this season for the Cardinals in a game in which they led by at least two runs.

Here is how the game broke down:

At the plate: The Cardinals took the 5-2 lead with three runs in the seventh inning, thanks in part to three Arizona errors. They had only two hits in the inning which went out of the infield, a pinch-hit single by Luke Voit and a single by Yadier Molina, which extended his hitting streak to 13 games … Jedd Gyorko drove in two runs without a hit, on a groundout in the first and a sacrifice fly in the seventh … Stephen Piscotty and Paul DeJong had the other RBIs … The Cardinals’ streak of hitting at least one home run was snapped at 15 games. They were limited to six hits, all singles, and were 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

On the mound:
Carlos Martinez did not allow a run and gave up just three hits through the first five innings before the Diamondbacks scored twice in the sixth to tie the game. Martinez gave up a pair of walks in the inning and both runners scored on a double by Chris Iannetta … Martinez finished with 10 strikeouts … Brett Cecil pitched around a two-out walk in the seventh before Rosenthal and Oh could not protect the lead … Oh has allowed at least one run in five of his last appearances dating back to June 11, a total of seven runs in eight innings. It was the sixth homer he has allowed this year, one more than his total for all of last season.

Key stat: The Cardinals had been 30-3 this season when leading after seven innings and 30-1 in games in which they led going into the ninth inning.

Worth noting: This was the fourth game this season in which Martinez struck out 10 or more batters. The last Cardinal to reach double digits in strikeouts four times in one season was Chris Carpenter in 2005 … Arizona shortstop Nick Ahmed suffered a “small fracture” in his right hand when he was hit by a pitch from Rosenthal in the eighth inning … Although the signing has not been announced by the Cardinals, reports Tuesday night said that their top pick in this year’s draft, outfielder Scott Hurst, has agreed to terms. Hurst was picked in the third round, the 94th overall choice, and reportedly agreed to a $450,000 signing bonus.

Looking ahead: Adam Wainwright will get the start in the second game of the series on Wednesday night. Zack Godley is scheduled to start for the Diamondbacks.
