PHOENIX (AP) — Daniel Descalso lined a run-scoring single in the 11th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks extended the best start in franchise history with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
Paul Goldschmidt, who had a run-scoring single in the fourth inning, hit a single off Edubray Ramos (0-7) in the 11th and Chris Owings walked after fouling off several pitches. Descalso lined a ball through the right side and Goldschmidt scored just ahead of the throw. Arizona has won 11 of 13 and is 48-28 overall.
T.J. McFarland (4-1) worked around a walk in the 11th for the Diamondbacks.
Arizona had a runner on in the ninth, but Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera made a leaping catch on Descalso’s drive to the wall to end the inning.
