The Orioles have claimed utility infielder Jace Peterson after he was placed on waivers by the New York Yankees.
Hernandez led off Philadelphia’s first by lining a double to right and advanced to third on Dyson’s fielding error. He scored on Santana’s groundout.
David Peralta’s sacrifice fly tied it at 1 in the third. Herrera’s sac fly gave the Phillies a 2-1 lead in the bottom half. Descalso’s sac fly put the Diamondbacks up 3-2 in the sixth.
Diamondbacks: RHP Taijuan Walker had Tommy John surgery on Wednesday in New York. RHP Shelby Miller, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery performed last year, threw his first session of live batting practice Wednesday. He could return this summer.
Phillies: GM Matt Klentak said RHP Jerad Eickhoff could return to the starting rotation by the end of May. Eickhoff has been out with a strained muscle in his back since spring training.
RHP Matt Koch (0-0, 1.13 ERA) starts for the Diamondbacks and RHP Ben Lively (0-1, 4.64 ERA) goes for the Phillies in the series finale on Thursday afternoon.
With the Spurs eliminated from the postseason, let’s look ahead to the free-agency, draft and trade decisions facing San Antonio this offseason.
“If you have to try to make yourself fall in love with a player,” Gettleman said, “it’s wrong.”

“Eli texted me right away saying congratulations and if I ever need anything let him know and let’s get ready to work,” Barkley said.
Bronx-born Barkley is Gettleman’s master plan to walk the tightrope between the present and future of the New York Football Giants.
Because to him, Barkley represents both Win Now and Win Later.
He is Gettleman’s God Jacket Giant who not only makes life easier on Manning in his last desperate bid for a third Super Bowl championship, but will also pair for years with his fast friend Odell Beckham Jr. for the quarterback who follows Manning.
