Goldschmidt’s single has D-Backs in lead
Paul Goldschmidt’s run-scoring single in the fourth gave the Diamondbacks a 1-0 lead over the Phillies, and right-hander Randall Delgado and reliever Rubby De La Rosa have been able to make it stand through six innings.
Goldschmidt’s single drove home Nick Ahmed, who doubled to open the inning, fouling off four two-strike pitches before hitting a drive to deep left.
Ahmed scored despite a couple of hesitations. He had wait before breaking off second base to make sure the ball got through the infield. Then he slowed as he approached third, probably assuming he would be held, but then turned it on again when third-base coach Tony Perezchica waved him in.
He still easily beat the relay throw from left fielder Cameron Perkins and third baseman Maikel Franco.
It was Goldschmidt’s 65th RBI this season, the most in the majors.
Delgado tossed five shutout innings – his latest strong effort in his fifth start for the Diamondbacks – before handing off to De La Rosa, who tossed a scoreless sixth, working around a two-out triple by Aaron Altherr by striking out Tommy Joseph to end the inning.
D-Backs, Phillies scoreless through 3
Right-hander Randall Delgado has tossed three scoreless innings against the Phillies on Sunday afternoon, once again throwing well in a spot start for the Diamondbacks.
The game is scoreless through three innings.
Delgado appeared to be in a minor jam in the second after Maikel Franco led off the inning with a double into the left field corner.
But left fielder Gregor Blanco made a diving catch to take a hit away from Odubel Herrera, then Delgado picked off Franco for the second out of the inning.
The Diamondbacks have been unable to get anything going offensively against Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson, who had five strikeouts through three innings.
Lamb gets day of rest
A number of Diamondbacks regulars weren’t in the starting lineup Sunday against the Phillies after Saturday’s night game, a 9-2 win for Arizona.
“Sunday mornings are tough on everybody, and that’s part of the reason why I give guys days off,” manager Torey Lovullo said. “If you’ve seen the lineup, you know that several of our guys are down today. It’s a hard, grinding moment to get up for, day game after a night game coming out of Colorado. These guys need some rest.”

Diamondbacks RHP Randall Delgado (1-1, 3.48) vs. Phillies RHP Jeremy Hellickson (5-5, 4.61)
Randall Delgado is getting a spot start so Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo can give his regular starters an extra day of rest.
In four previous starts this year, Delgado had a 3.15 ERA, striking out 20 batters in 20 innings while walking just four.
Jeremy Hellickson, the former Diamondback, has lost four of his last five starts and hasn’t won since May 19.
He pitched well in his last time out, however, giving up just one run in seven innings against St. Louis.
