Jake Lamb homered in the fourth inning and hit an RBI double in Arizona’s two-run 10th, and the Diamondbacks extended their winning streak to five games with a 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
Chris Owings scored the first run in the 10th on a wild pitch by reliever Wily Peralta (5-3) before Lamb added the insurance run by doubling to the right-field corner.
Chris Iannetta had tied it for Arizona with two outs in the ninth, hitting a solo homer off a 98 mph fastball from Brewers closer Corey Knebel.
T.J. McFarland (2-0) got the win after pitching a scoreless ninth. Fernando Rodney picked up his 13th save by tossing a scoreless 10th, but provided a couple nervous moments after allowing two flyouts to the warning track.
For the Brewers, it was a disappointing finish to a tense final few innings. They had rallied for a 2-1 lead in the eighth on Hernan Perez’s RBI single off Andrew Chafin.
