Godley pitches Diamondbacks to win over Padres

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Zack Godley pitched six effective innings in his 10th win this season, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 3-1 on Friday night.
    
Godley (10-6) allowed one run and four hits while improving to 5-1 in his last six starts. He was rocked for seven runs in four innings in a loss to San Francisco in his last outing.
    
Steven Souza Jr. drove in two runs with a single and fielder's choice in his second game back from the disabled list.
    
Joey Lucchesi (4-4) retired 14 in a row before Arizona scored twice in the sixth. Lucchesi went 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs and three hits with two strikeouts, one walk and two hit batters.
    
He grazed A.J. Pollock with a pitch with the bases loaded to bring in the tying run.
    
Nick Ahmed doubled, singled and scored twice for the Diamondbacks, who improved to 2-6 on a 10-game homestand. Brad Boxberger threw a perfect ninth for his 21st save in 25 tries.
    
The Padres have lost 14 of 18.
    
Lucchesi's first big league hit helped the Padres take the lead in the third. The rookie singled to left, advanced to third on Travis Jankowski's long single to the right-field corner and scored when Carlos Asuaji grounded out.
    
The Diamondbacks threatened in the first when David Peralta was hit by a pitch and Paul Goldschmidt lashed a ground-rule double that bounced into the Arizona bullpen. But they came up empty when Pollock grounded out and Souza struck out looking.
    
Arizona didn't get another baserunner until Godley drew a leadoff walk in the sixth. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases with one-out singles by Ahmed and Goldschmidt and Lucchesi hit Pollock to bring in the tying run.
    
That was it for Lucchesi. Reliever Adam Cimber bobbled Souza's slow grounder and still got the out at first, but Ahmed scored and the Diamondbacks led 2-1.
    
Ahmed led off the eighth with a double and scored on Souza's two-out single.
    
TRAINER'S ROOM
    
Padres: RHP Phil Hughes (right rhomboid strain) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and RHP Kirby Yates returned from paternity leave. RHPs Kazuhisa Makita and Robert Stock were optioned to Triple-A El Paso.
    
Diamondbacks: RHP Randall Delgado (strained left oblique) was reinstated from the 60-day DL. RHP Fernando Salas was designated for assignment.
    
NOT SIGNING
    
California high school shortstop Matt McLain, Arizona's first-round pick and the 25th overall player taken in the draft, informed the Diamondbacks he will not sign with them and will instead enroll at UCLA. The Diamondbacks will get a compensatory pick, the 27th overall, next year.
    
UP NEXT
    
Arizona LHP Robbie Ray (3-1. 4.89 ERA) makes his third start since returning from the disabled list and San Diego counters with RHP Tyler Ross (5-6, 3.89 ERA) on Saturday night in the third game of the four-game series.
