Last night, the D-backs defeated the Phillies, 12-7 and among the notable records and occurrences were:
The D-backs drew 18 walks, a team record and the most in Major League Baseball since July 2, 2004 when the Phillies drew 18 vs. Baltimore
Cliff Pennington and Tony Campana each drew a franchise-record five walks, becoming the first set of teammates with five walks in a game since at least 1916
The D-backs used 22 players, tied for the second-most in club history and the most since a club-record 25 on Sept. 16, 2006 vs. Colorado
The D-backs are the first team in baseball with three games of at least 16 innings in one season since the 1989 Dodgers
Josh Collmenter pitched 2.1 innings giving him 25.2 IP in extra innings this year, the most in MLB since Cleveland's Dan Spillner's 27.2 in 1982.
