LHP Wade Miley gave up two earned runs on seven hits and a walk against the Nationals on Wednesday. He struck out four in seven innings. He has made 15 starts and has thrown 88 innings. "He pitched a solid game for us," manager Kirk Gibson said. Arizona starting pitchers have not won in the past 18 games -- Miley was the last to do so.
1B Paul Goldschmidt began the day as the league leader in RBI, and he hit an RBI double in his first at-bat to give him 67 RBI.
OF Adam Eaton began a new rehab assignment Wednesday, going 1-for-2 with a walk and two RBI while playing for the Diamondbacks' affiliate in the rookie-level Arizona League. Eaton has been out all season due to a torn left elbow ligament, and he had to abandon a previous rehab assignment due to renewed discomfort.
