Brad Ziegler recorded the final two outs of Monday's 6-4 win against the Nationals to earn his 19th save.

The Diamondbacks entered the bottom of the ninth with a 6-0 lead and Daniel Hudson on the mound, but the right-hander allowed a solo home run followed by three singles and a double, leading to four runs scoring before departing. Ziegler entered and got Jayson Werth to ground out and Yunel Escobar to foul out to end the contest. He moves to 19-for-21 in save situations with a 1.17 ERA and a 28/14 K/BB ratio over 46 1/3 innings.

Welington Castillo hit another home run in Monday's victory versus the Nationals, finishing 1-for-4.

Castillo went back-to-back with David Peralta in the fourth inning against Doug Fister. His solo blast made it a 4-0 ballgame. The catcher has five home runs in his last six games, giving him 12 on the season and 10 since joining the Diamondbacks in early June.

David Peralta went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, aiding in Monday's win against the Nationals.

Peralta boosted the Diamondbacks' lead to 3-0 with a two-run home run off of Doug Fister in the fourth inning. It was his first home run since July 18, but he had hit .316 (12-for-38) in that span of time, so it wasn't a slump. On the season, the outfielder is batting a healthy .284/.353/.503 with 10 home runs and 50 RBI.

Doug Fister was hit hard in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Monday, serving up five runs in six innings.

Four of the five runs scored on home runs. Nick Ahmed hit a solo shot in the third inning, David Peralta whacked a two-run homer in the fourth and Welington Castillo went yard for a solo shot in the same frame. Fister allowed eight hits overall, walking none and striking out six. The right-hander hasn't been able to make much progress in lowering his ERA, which currently stands at 4.60 along with a 1.42 WHIP and a 48/18 K/BB ratio over 86 innings. Fister will try to get back in the win column when he faces the Rockies at home next.
Aug 3 - 9:53 PM

Zack Godley tossed six scoreless innings to beat the Nationals on Monday.

Godley scattered three hits and a pair of walks while fanning six batters in the effort. The 25-year-old has had terrific results in his first three major league starts, sporting a 1.50 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP and a 17/5 K/BB ratio over 18 frames. He'll look to continue the trend with a weekend start at home versus the Reds. The Diamondbacks plan to move Godley to the bullpen soon, so it could be his final start of the season.
Aug 3 - 9:49 PM

Nick Ahmed went 4-for-4 with a solo home run as the Diamondbacks beat the Nationals on Monday.

Ahmed broke a scoreless tie in the top of the third inning with a solo home run off of Doug Fister. It was one of four Arizona homers on the evening. The shortstop hasn't exactly been an offensive dynamo, as Monday's performance still leaves him with a lackluster .232/.289/.348 batting line along with seven home runs and 26 RBI.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that Andrelton Simmons experienced a "really big improvement" with his sprained right thumb from Sunday to Monday.

Dr. Gary Laurie still needs to read the results of Simmons' MRI before more is known on his status, but it's sounding like the shortstop has a shot to avoid the disabled list. Simmons suffered the injury after trying to make a diving catch during Saturday's game.
Aug 3 - 9:34 PM

Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wright injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time.
