Zack Godley struck out seven in six shutout innings in his major league debut, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to an 8-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night.
Godley, a 25-year-old right-hander called up from Double-A before Thursday's game, held the Brewers to four hits, sprinting off the mound to the dugout after each inning. He got run support from 13 Diamondbacks hits, including three with two RBIs for A.J Pollock.
Yasmany Tomas gave the Diamondbacks an early lead with a solo home run in the second inning. The Brewers failed to score in the third after putting runners on first and third with no outs.
Gerardo Parra grounded back to Godley, who threw to second base for a force out. Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed then threw home, and Arizona got a double play when Oscar Hernandez tagged the Brewers' Hernan Perez at the plate.
