Tuesday's 6-5, 10-inning victory for the D-backs (50-28) improved their record to 17-7 in one-run decisions and 7-1 in extra innings. It was their 28th come-from-behind victory of the season and improved their home record to 30-10.
"These guys believe, and that's a pretty powerful thing," manager Torey Lovullo said after Chris Herrmann delivered the team's second walk-off victory in three days.
"This team never shuts down. These are the types of wins that show the character and the heart and the desire that we have. That's what we're building here. They believe in one another. They believe in the moment."
The Cardinals (35-41), meanwhile, are 14-26 over their past 40 games.
Godley, who joined the rotation after Shelby Miller sustained a season-ending elbow injury, is 3-1 with a 2.53 ERA. He has not given up more than three runs in any of his nine starts and has not given up more than two runs in his four starts at Chase Field.
He has made seven quality starts in his past eight outings. He limited the Rockies to three runs and four hits over seven innings at Coors Field in his last outing, striking out eight and walking one.

Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright (7-5, 5.75 ERA)
Wainwright has experienced a Jekyll-and-Hyde season for the Cardinals. He's given up two runs or fewer in six of his past eight starts, but the two exceptions were nightmarish outings. He gave up nine runs in 3 2/3 innings of a 13-1 loss at Cincinnati on June 6 and nine more runs in 1 2/3 innings during a 15-7 loss at Baltimore on June 17. As a result of those two blowups, he has a 2-4 record and 9.84 ERA in seven road starts.
Wainwright has made career appearances (10 starts) against the Diamondbacks, compiling a 7-4 record and 2.71 ERA.

It takes a village
The Diamondbacks won Tuesday's game despite an 0-for-4, two-strikeout performance from Paul Goldschmidt, with the winning run fashioned with a Rey Fuentes, a Zack Godley sacrifice bunt and a Chris Herrmann single. Herrmann, Chris Iannetta and Daniel Descalso delivered five of the six RBI in the victory.
Descalso, an under-the-radar off-season free-agent signing, has gotten the bulk of the starts in left field since Yasmany Tomas went on the disabled list, and he's blossomed with the regular playing time. He's 10 for 21 with six RBI on the current homestand. Herrmann is still hitting only .193 on the season, but he's 4 for 9 with seven RBI on the homestand.
And we wouldn't worry too much about Goldschmidt. Even after Tuesday's 0-fer, he's hitting .386 for the month of June, tied with Andrew McCutchen for best in the majors, with six home runs and 26 RBI.

Room for improvement
The one area where the D-backs have not performed like a championship contender is in the field. They made three errors in Tuesday's seventh inning, leading to a pair of unearned runs.
For the season, they are tied for 22nd in the majors in Defensive Runs Saved (-9), tied for sixth in errors (52) and fifth in most unearned runs (35).
By contrast, the only teams in the majors with better records than the D-backs are among the most efficient defensive teams. The Astros have given up 14 unearned runs, and the Dodgers 15.
