    Diamondbacks rally from 6-run deficit to beat Padres 7-6

    Arizona had two batters hit by pitches with the bases loaded in the same game for the first time in team history — in consecutive plate appearances, no less. San Diego escaped a big jam, thanks in large part to a double play that went from the second baseman to catcher to shortstop. Josh Rojas scored the winning run in the ninth inning when shortstop C.J. Abrams couldn't handle a throw at second base, and the Diamondbacks rallied from a late six-run deficit to beat the Padres 7-6 on Tuesday.
