 'Banner Times' photo (c) 2011, Joshua Mayer - license: The up and down play of the Arizona Diamondbacks continued in game two of the Milwaukee Brewers series, as the team was able to get a comeback win 7-5 and got a pretty good pitching outing from the bull pen.

Reliever Evan Marshall was called up from Triple-A Reno to replace the injured J.J. Putz whom was placed on the disabled list with right forearm tightness.

Marshall made his relief debut in Milwaukee tonight and also in front of a small crowd of his family, Marshall had a very good outing retiring four batters to help seal a comeback victory and got his first major league win.

The D-backs got off to a similar start going down early in the game by 3 runs or more and the consensus is to get off to a fast start, as they went down 5-2 early off an error throw by Chris Owings.

The loss of J.J. Putz just adds to the teams injury list that caused them to suffer in the pitching department all season long. Marshall said afterward he was really jacked up to get the opportunity to go after the Brewer batters "I just made a couple good pitches and he got out and the next inning was more back to calmed down, back to the usual, getting ahead of guys and throwing strikes" said Marshall speaking of facing Carlos Gomez to get out of a jam.

Diamondbacks having an up and down year mainly in the pitching department and an outing like Marshall had on Tuesday night can help the team continue what they have been pretty ok at , and that is wining on the road at 9-8 on the year.
