Milwaukee Brewers 3  Arizona Diamondbacks 9: A rare game of the Diamondbacks actually coming from behind to win a game, with Archie Bradley striking out 8 in the win but leaving before the end of the fifth. Jake Lamb hit his 24th home run of the season, and Phil Gosselin hit a two-run homer in a pinch hit appearance.

Philadelphia Phillies 6  San Diego Padres 5: The Phillies pulled off the first triple play in Petco Park thanks to some daring from Maikel Franco, coming after the Phillies took the lead for good off of a Tommy Joseph RBI single.
