Shelby Miller, Jake Lamb lead Arizona past Phillies 3-1
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Shelby Miller threw 6 2-3 sharp innings, Jake Lamb hit a two-run homer and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the reeling Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 Monday afternoon to complete a four-game sweep.
Miller (2-6) allowed one run and five hits, striking out five in his first start since May 24. He had been on the disabled list with a sprained right index finger.
The Phillies went 0-6 on their first winless homestand of six or more games since Sept. 21-27, 1964, when they went 0-7 at Connie Mack Stadium before losing three more games in a historic collapse from first place.
Jeremy Hellickson (4-6) allowed three runs and four hits before recording an out.
Jean Segura led off with a double and scored on Phil Gosselin's single. Lamb hit a towering shot off the scoreboard in right for his 14th homer and a 3-0 lead.
The Phillies got their only run in the second when Tyler Goeddel's double scored Andres Blanco after he started the inning with a double.
