Final: Phillies 4, Diamondbacks 3 ❖ Attendance: 19,645
ARIZONA — The Philadelphia Phillies (34-45) were 0-41 when trailing after eight innings, while the Arizona Diamondbacks (36-44) were 30-0 when leading after eight.
Both streaks came to an end early Wednesday morning in the second of the three-game series, as the Phillies completed a two-run comeback victory — their first of the 2016 season — against right-hander Brad Ziegler in the top of the ninth inning at Chase Field.
Closer Jeanmar Gomez successfully recorded his 21st save, securing the series victory, the Phillies' first since May 16-18 and their first road series win since May 10-12, ending a 0-10-2 and 0-5-1 respective series skid.
For the first time since June 20 — the finale of a four-game series against the Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park — the Phillies defense did not commit an error. They have 17 total errors in their last 13 games, with at least one in 11 of the contests.
The Phillies will send rookie right-hander Zach Eflin to the mound later Wednesday afternoon in search of their third series sweep.
