Hill homers to give D-backs 7-5 win over BrewersPosted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Aaron Hill hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning after Miguel Montero had a tying single, rallying the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Milwaukee Brewers 7-5 Tuesday night.
Evan Marshall (1-0) pitched 1 1-3 innings of scoreless relief in his major league debut for the victory. Addison Reed pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his ninth save in 10 opportunities.
Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Owings also homered for Arizona, which has won five of its last seven games on the road.
Brandon Kintzler (1-1) gave up the three runs in the eighth.
Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Milwaukee starter Marco Estrada. The Brewers scored for five runs in the bottom half off Josh Collmenter.
The Diamondbacks entered the eighth trailing by a run. But Goldschmidt hustled for a double and scored on Montero's single. Hill hit a drive over the left-center field fence.
Goldschmidt's homer came immediately after Arizona challenged a call in which leadoff hitter Gerardo Parra, who had singled, had been ruled out at first base on a pick off. The call was overturned by review.
Lyle Overbay had an RBI single, Ownings' two-out throwing error allowed another run to score, Jean Segura followed with a run-scoring single and Logan Schafer capped the inning with a two-run double.
Both pitchers settled down after that. Estrada retired 11 of the next 12 batters following Goldschmidt's home run before issuing a walk to A.J. Pollock leading of the fifth. Pollack later scored on Collmenter's ground out, cutting the lead to 5-3.
Owings hit his first big league homer leading off the sixth. Two spectacular plays by Brewers shortstop Segura, including recording an assist on the final out as he ranged behind second base to field a grounder, prevented any additional damage in the inning.
Collmenter gave up just four singles after the first. He departed in the sixth after consecutive two-out singles to Schafer and pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks. Marshall came on to record the final out of the inning.
Collmenter gave up five runs - one earned - and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out three and walked one.
Estrada yielded four runs and four hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked two.
NOTES: The Diamondbacks placed reliever J.J. Putz on the 15-day DL with right forearm tightness and optioned pitcher Mike Bolsinger to Triple-A Reno. The team called up Marshall from Reno and Chase Anderson from Double-A Mobile. . Wily Peralta (4-1) will take the mound for Milwaukee against Arizona's Bronson Arroyo (2-2) in the three-game series finale on Wednesday.
