PHOENIX (AP) — Ketel Marte hit a tying home run in the third inning and go-ahead, two-run single in the fourth, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks stop a 13-game losing streak with a 9-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Arizona, which overcame a 2-0 deficit, is just 19-35 and had been on the National League’s longest losing streak since the Diamondbacks’ 14-game skid in 2004.
Matt Peacock got his first big league win as a starting pitcher, throwing 78 pitches in his third career start. He gave up two runs and six hits in six innings, struck out six, and walked none.
