PHOENIX (AP) _ Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam and tied a
franchise postseason record with five RBIs, fellow Arizona rookie
Josh Collmenter befuddled Milwaukee batters again and the
Diamondbacks stayed alive in the NL division series with a 8-1 rout
of the Brewers on Tuesday night.

Goldschmidt, who has made big hits a habit since he was called
up from Double-A Mobile on Aug. 1, gave Arizona a 7-1 lead in the
fifth with a two-out, opposite-field homer to right off Shaun
Marcum after Miguel Montero had been intentionally walked. Montero
drove in two runs with a single and double.

With an unorthodox overhand style he says comes from throwing
tomahawks as a kid in the Michigan woods, Collmenter limited the
Brewers to a run and two hits in seven innings. Corey Hart’s
leadoff homer in the third was the only run Milwaukee has scored
against the 25-year-old in 21 innings this season.

Milwaukee leads the best-of-five 2-1. Game 4 is Wednesday night
in Phoenix.
