Diamondbacks Blast 4 Home Runs In 10-6 Victory Over Brewers, Game 5 Friday
Home Runs from Ryan Roberts, Chris Young and Aaron Hill lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a victory over the Milwaukee Brewers to force another game five in the Major League Baseball playoffs.
Both starting pitchers, The Brewers Randy Wolf and The D-Backs Joe Saunders lasted only 3 innings.

Wolf had a scoreless 2nd but gave up two more runs in the 3rd off the bat of pinch hitter Collin Cowgill. Saunders wasn’t as bad but he didn’t have his best stuff giving up a run in each of his 3 innings. Arizona Manager Kirk Gibson not risking any more runs, went to his bullpen in the 4th.
Both the 4th and 5th innings were scoreless but the Brewers would score in the 6th with a Corey Hart Sacrifice Fly. The Diamondbacks would in turn get their 4 run lead back with a solo home run by Aaron Hill.
In the Bottom of the 7th, Chris Young would blast his second Home Run of the night, a two run shot off reliever Chris Narveson. The Brewers didn’t go down without a fight as Carlos Gomez would hit a two run shot off of reliever David Hernandez in the top of the 8th.
