Martinez gave the D’backs the lead with a run-scoring two-base hit of his own. David Peralta had an inside-the-park home run to provide insurance in the eighth. Patrick Corbin pitched into the seventh without allowing a run to earn the win snapping Arizona’s three-game slide. Jon Lester surrendered four runs over six innings to take the loss for Chicago.
