Diamondbacks offense leads them to game 5 in Milwaukee

The Diamondbacks forced a game 5 against the Brewers for Friday after they beat them 10-6 at Chase Field on Wednesday night. After getting a commanding lead in the bottom of the first thanks to a Ryan Robert's Grand Slam and a Chris Young solo homer, the Diamondbacks held a lead they would not relinquish. The Brewers actually came within inches from tieing the game when Cory Hart launched a ball to the fence with bases loaded, but Gerarrdo Parra caught the ball at the warning track to save a 4-run lead. Micah Owings earned the win and Randy Wolf had the loss as Milwaukee let up 4 home runs. This NLDS series will head back to Milwaukee as Ian Kennedy will look for revenge against Yovani Gallardo and the Brew Crew. If the snakes can win on Friday, they will become the first team in NLDS history to come back from a 2-0 series deficit and advance to the NLCS. It will be interesting to see if the D-backs can come back one more time against the Brewers. Anybody, Anytime
