Diamondbacks rally for 9-8 win over Braves

 A.J. Pollock homered for the second consecutive game, and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied for a wild 9-8 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

Atlanta jumped to a 6-0 lead in the second inning, but Arizona chased Mike Foltynewicz in the sixth and grabbed the lead for good with three runs in the seventh. Yasmany Tomas and Chris Owings each had an RBI single, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia made it 8-7 with a tiebreaking sacrifice fly. David Peralta’s slide at home plate beat Cameron Maybin’s throw from mid-center field.

Tomas had three hits, and four relievers combined for four innings of four-hit ball. Andrew Chafin (4-0) got the win, and Brad Ziegler allowed A.J. Pierzynski’s pinch-hit homer in the ninth before finishing for his fifth save in six tries.
