D-backs win 2nd straight road series

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE, WI (AP) -

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer for the second straight game to back Bronson Arroyo and lead the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 on Wednesday.

Goldschmidt hit an 0-1 pitch for his seventh homer of the year after Martin Prado led off the third with a single. Goldschmidt went 7 for 15 in a three-game-series and is batting .450 over a nine-game hitting streak.

Arizona took two of three from the team that entered Wednesday an NL-best 22-12.Arroyo (3-2) allowed an unearned run and five hits in seven innings, his third straight outing holding an opponent to no more than two runs.

Arroyo has begun to settle in for the Diamondbacks. He's 2-0 in his last three starts having allowed just two earned runs in 20 and 2/3 innings pitched (0.87 ERA). His overall earned run average has dropped from 7.77 to 4.89 over that stretch.

Addison Reed got his 10th save in 11 chances despite giving up a run in the ninth.

Wily Peralta (4-2) allowed 11 hits, tying his career high, and two runs in six innings.
