PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Corbin Carroll singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning for his third hit and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Tuesday night for their ninth victory in 11 games.

At 29-20, Arizona moved nine games over .500 for the first time since Sept. 11, 2018, when it was 77-68.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. extended his hitting streak to 16 games — the longest active run in the majors — with a leadoff double in the eighth off Seranthony Dominguez (1-2). After advancing to third on a passed ball by J.T. Realmuto, Gurriel scored on Carroll's single to left field through a drawn-in infield.

Dominic Fletcher added a big defensive play in the bottom of the eighth, making a sliding catch on Kyle Schwarber's liner in center with two on and two out.

Arizona has followed all four innings where the Phillies have scored in the series with runs of its own in the top half of the following inning to either regain or extend the lead.

Gabriel Moreno hit a two-run homer for the Diamondbacks, and Emmanuel Rivera had two hits. Arizona starter Ryne Nelson allowed one run and three hits in six innings. José Ruiz (2-0) got the win and Miguel Castro earned his fifth save with a clean ninth inning.

Kody Clemens drove in two runs, and Bryce Harper had two hits for the Phillies. They have lost seven of their last nine.

Alec Bohm had a pinch-hit RBI single in the seventh for Philadelphia to tie it.


Phillies: OF Brandon Marsh was scratched from the starting lineup an hour before the first pitch because of right shoulder inflammation. Marsh has been in a slump at the plate and has seen his average dip from .329 on April 30 to .262, going 6 for 45 in May.


The final game of the series is Wednesday, with the Diamondbacks sending RHP Zac Gallen (6-2, 2.95 ERA) to the mound against LHP Ranger Suárez (0-1, 10.50).
