CINCINNATI — Left-hander Wade Miley didn’t feel all that great. Against the Reds, it didn’t matter.
Miley blanked Cincinnati into the seventh inning, Paul Goldschmidt hit a 2-run homer and the Arizona Diamondbacks held on for a 5-4 victory on Wednesday, taking a series between two teams with struggling offenses.
Goldschmidt’s 19th homer off Alfred Simon (12-6) gave the Diamondbacks 2-of-3 in the series. Simon has gone 0-3 since his first All-Star selection. Didi Gregorius added a 2-run homer in the ninth.
Two homers in one game?
“That’s something we haven’t been doing a lot lately,” manager Kirk Gibson replied.
Neither team had been doing much of anything.
The Reds fell to 2-10 since the All-Star break. Devin Mesoraco’s 3-run homer in the ninth off Addison Reed ended a streak of 11 straight games with three runs or fewer, Cincinnati’s longest such stretch of futility since 1967.
