Jay Bruce launched his second homerun of the night to give the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth inning but Aroldis Chapman couldn't seal the deal as the Arizona Diamondback plated two runs to down the Reds 4-3.
It was a pitchers duel at Chase Field as Mike Leake and Patrick Corbin both threw gems for their respective teams. Leake took a perfect game into the sixth inning and Corbin allowed a single run and three hits in eight innings.
"He did great," said Jay Bruce of Leake. "He pitched a great game. We just have to play better as a team. I think Leake has arguably been our best pitcher, and the most consistent pitcher all year."
"You just hate to lose it like that," Dusty Baker said. "We've lost quite a few of them late. It seemed like Chappy was overthrowing some today. He was wild, high. It was just a tough ending."
