D-backs place 3B Lamb on DL with shoulder injury
Lamb sprained his left AC joint when he made a diving catch of a line drive in foul territory in the ninth inning of Arizona’s 8-7, 15-inning victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He stayed in the 5-hour, 45-minute game, singled in the 15th inning early Tuesday morning and scored the tying run with a head-first slide, in obvious pain afterward.
To take Lamb’s place on the roster, Arizona recalled right-hander reliever Matt Koch from Triple-A Reno. Koch has made eight appearances, two starts, with the Diamondbacks the last two seasons, going 1-1 with a 3.50 ERA. Koch provides help to a depleted bullpen since all seven relievers appeared in the series-opening win over the Dodgers.
