1. The Az Diamondbacks defeated the San Diego Padres 7-6 last night at Chase Field. The Dbacks jumped out to a 7-1 lead thanks in part to a Chris Owings grand slam but the Dbacks bullpen, in relief of starter Zack Greinke, allowed the Padres to get back into the game before closer Fernando Rodney pitched a 1-2-3 9th for the save.
2. In other Dbacks news, starting pitcher Shelby Miller will be getting a 2nd opinion on his right elbow as it may require Tommy John surgery.
3. In the NBA playoffs last night, Toronto beat Milwaukee 118-93 to take a 3-2 series lead, Atlanta beat Washington 111-101 to tie the series at 2-2, and Golden State beat Portland 128-103 to sweep that series.
