D-backs rally in 11th after blowing lead in 9th

April 15, 2010 by  

Rodrigo Lopez made his second start of the season for the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight and allowed eleven hits in five innings that lead to five runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers sent Chad Billingsly to the mound and Billingsly lasted 5.2 innings allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks.

The D-backs were able to get to Billingsly for three runs in the fourth inning including Stephen Drew’s second homer of the year. After the D-backs tied the game with their three run fourth inning the Dodgers jumped back up 5-3 off Matt Kemp’s third of the season with one on and two out.

Arizona would take a 7-6 lead into the 9th inning with their closer Chad Qualls on the mound. Qualls would not be able to hold the lead as he allowed one run to score on two hits and a walk. The D-backs would get to former teammate Russ Ortiz for the second night in the row, this time in the 11th inning. Drew would get the 11th going with a leadoff single and was followed by Adam LaRoche who reached on a walk moving Drew to second. Mark Reynolds would load the bases before Chris Young would line a pitch into left field scoring two runs and giving the D-backs the 9-7 victory.

Chris Young continued to be one of the hottest hitters in the NL early in the season going 2-for-4 with a walk and raising his average to .344. Young’s 14 RBI’s are among the leaders in baseball.
