Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Adam Eaton deposited the first pitch he saw in
the ninth inning into the pool beyond the wall in right-center, and the
leadoff home run sent the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Baltimore Orioles,
7-6, in the first of three interleague games at Chase Field.
Chris Davis tied things in the away eighth with a solo home run -- his league-
leading 43rd of the season -- and Wil Nieves answered in the bottom half with
his first of the year to nearly the same spot, though his hit the top of the
wall and bounced halfway up the left-field bleachers where Davis' landed.
Brad Ziegler was unable to close out the victory in the ninth, as he loaded
the bases with one out and gave up a sacrifice fly to Nick Markakis.
Ziegler (6-1) retired Manny Machado to get out of the inning, and Eaton
connected on his first home run of the season on Darren O'Day's (5-2) first
pitch to give the D'backs their eighth walk-off win and the 24th victory in
