    Zack Godley followed one of his worst outings of the season with perhaps his best. Perfect timing for Arizona [url=http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-will-dissly-jersey]http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-will-dissly-jersey[/url] , too.

    Godley pitched six effective innings in his 10th win, helping the Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 3-1 on Friday night.

    Arizona improved to 2-6 on its 10-game homestand and regained sole possession of first place in the NL West from the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost 3-2 to the Angels.

    Godley (10-6) allowed one run and four hits while improving to 5-1 in his last six starts. He was rocked for seven runs in four innings in a loss to San Francisco in his last outing.

    ”The way this game works you kind of have to let it go and move on,” Godley said. ”Baseball is a short-memory sport.”

    Asked what was working, he said: ”my curve and my defense.”

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Godley’s command was ”as good as I can remember.”

    ”There’s been a couple of games so far this year where he has had outings like that,” Lovullo said. ”But today’s was one of the better ones that I’ve seen in a long time.”

    Steven Souza Jr. drove in two runs with a single and fielder’s choice in his second game back from the disabled list. Souza has played in just 17 games this season due to a right pectoral injury.

    Joey Lucchesi (4-4) retired 14 in a row before Arizona scored twice in the sixth. Lucchesi went 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs and three hits with two strikeouts, one walk and two hit batters.

    He grazed A.J. Pollock with a pitch with the bases loaded to bring in the tying run.

    Nick Ahmed doubled, singled and scored twice for the Diamondbacks. Brad Boxberger threw a perfect ninth for his 21st save in 25 tries.

    The Padres have lost 14 of 18.

    Lucchesi’s first big league hit helped the Padres take the lead in the third. The rookie singled to left [url=http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-michael-dickson-jersey]http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-michael-dickson-jersey[/url] , advanced to third on Travis Jankowski’s long single to the right-field corner and scored when Carlos Asuaji grounded out.

    The Diamondbacks threatened in the first when David Peralta was hit by a pitch and Paul Goldschmidt lashed a ground-rule double that bounced into the Arizona bullpen. But they came up empty when Pollock grounded out and Souza struck out looking.

    Arizona didn’t get another baserunner until Godley drew a leadoff walk in the sixth. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases with one-out singles by Ahmed and Goldschmidt and Lucchesi hit Pollock to bring in the tying run.

    That was it for Lucchesi. Reliever Adam Cimber bobbled Souza’s slow grounder and still got the out at first, but Ahmed scored and the Diamondbacks led 2-1.

    ”He threw the ball well,” Padres manager Andy Green said of Lucchesi. ”We didn’t do too much for him offensively. You get to that sixth inning, his pitch count is low. You want to see him attack that inning. The thing that hurts him is the walk to Godley. Outside of that I think it was a very good day for him.”

    Ahmed led off the eighth with a double and scored on Souza’s two-out single.

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    Padres: RHP Phil Hughes (right rhomboid strain) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and RHP Kirby Yates returned from paternity leave. RHPs Kazuhisa Makita and Robert Stock were optioned to Triple-A El Paso.

    Diamondbacks: RHP Randall Delgado (strained left oblique) was reinstated from the 60-day DL. RHP Fernando Salas was designated for assignment.

    NOT SIGNING

    California high school shortstop Matt McLain, Arizona’s first-round pick and the 25th overall player taken in the draft, informed the Diamondbacks he will not sign with them and will instead enroll at UCLA. The Diamondbacks will get a compensatory pick, the 27th overall, next year.

    UP NEXT

    Arizona LHP Robbie Ray (3-1. 4.89 ERA) makes his third start since returning from the disabled list and San Diego counters with RHP Tyler Ross (5-6, 3.89 ERA) on Saturday night in the third game of the four-game series.

    Another strong effort from Anibal Sanchez has the first-place Atlanta Braves facing a sudden surplus of starting pitchers.

    Sanchez allowed only four hits in seven scoreless innings [url=http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-alex-mcgough-jersey]http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-alex-mcgough-jersey[/url] , Ender Inciarte homered and scored two runs and the Braves, helped by a strange replay ruling, beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 on Thursday night.

    The Braves (40-28) moved 12 games over .500 for the first time since ending the 2013 season on top of the NL East. They haven’t been back to the playoffs since 2013, but now they’re again leading the division.

    Sanchez has won two straight starts. With the emergence of rookie Mike Soroka and the expected return of Julio Teheran from the DL this weekend, Braves manager Brian Snitker could soon face difficult decisions in his rotation.

    ”We’ve got a good problem because we’ve got more starters than we can probably use right now,” Snitker said. ”That’s something that not a lot of teams can say. So it’s going to be some tough decisions going forward.”

    Sanchez (3-0) did not walk a batter as he earned his first win in six career starts against San Diego. The 34-year-old right-hander lowered his ERA to 1.93 in seven games, including six starts. He signed with Atlanta in spring training following his release from Minnesota.

    ”He’s been a man on a mission,” catcher Tyler Flowers said.

    Sanchez outpitched Tyson Ross (5-4), who allowed only three hits and three runs in six-plus innings.

    Ozzie Albies added a run-scoring double for Atlanta. Inciarte [url=http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sebastian-janikowski-jersey]http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sebastian-janikowski-jersey[/url] , who singled and scored in the third, had two hits.

    Atlanta led 3-0 before Eric Hosmer’s double off Dan Winkler in the eighth drove in Jose Pirela and Cory Spangenberg, cutting the lead to one run.

    Freddie Freeman doubled and scored on Adam Cimber’s throwing error on Flowers’ grounder in the bottom of the eighth to cap the scoring.

    Arodys Vizcaino pitched the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances.

    The Padres were upset a video review affirmed the ruling from home plate umpire Mark Ripperger that Flowers was hit by a pitch from Sanchez in the seventh. The review lasted 2 minutes, 39 seconds.

    Flowers said he told Ripperger he didn’t think he was hit by the pitch.

    ”The more I thought about it sitting there, and then seeing the replay, I know it hit something,” Flowers said. ”It might have been me. I don’t know. I wear so many guards and stuff, it might have been one of those.”

    TV replays seemed to show the ball didn’t hit Flowers or his bat.

    San Diego manager Andy Green said the call changed the game because Flowers scored on Inciarte’s groundout against Robbie Erlin.

    ”In those moments as a manager I’m not even sure why you have replay,” Green said. ”I mean [url=http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-byron-maxwell-jersey]http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-byron-maxwell-jersey[/url] , it’s blatantly obvious it didn’t hit him. There’s no situation where that hit him and it changed the game. … Every single way you look at that one they blew it and that cost us.”

    Inciarte pulled a pitch from Ross over the first level of right-field seats and into the open doors of a restaurant in the fifth. It was Inciarte’s fifth homer and his first since May 15.

    Sanchez escaped sixth-inning trouble after the Padres had runners on first and third with one out, following a double by A.J. Ellis and an infield single by Pirela. Spangenberg and Hosmer ended the inning with infield popups.

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    Teheran (right thumb contusion) is on track to come off the DL and start on Sunday after throwing a bullpen session with no problems. Teheran has been out since June 5. … Braves OF Ronald Acuna Jr. (left knee sprain) hit before the game. He is expected to run the bases at a moderate pace on Friday and then give the knee a more strenuous test on Saturday.

    SLOW STARTERS

    The Padres fell to 5-18 in series openers this season, the worst mark in the National League. Despite those poor starts, San Diego has won five straight series.

    RARE WALK

    Ross went four innings without a walk before putting Albies on base with two outs in the fifth. It ended a stretch of 32 innings without a walk for San Diego pitchers, matching the longest streak in franchise history from July 28-31, 1971.

    UP NEXT

    Padres: LHP Clayton Richard will start Friday night’s second game of the series. He is 4-2 with a 3.04 ERA in his last seven starts.

    Braves: RHP Brandon McCarthy was announced as Friday night’s starter.
