D-backs thump Phillies with 11-run 2nd

PHOENIX -- The D-backs' bats remained hot on Tuesday night, as they orchestrated an historic 11-run second inning featuring a grand slam by David Peralta and pounded the Phillies, 13-1, at Chase Field.

The D-backs smacked a club-record 10 hits in the second, sending 15 batters to the plate. Aaron Hill hit a two-run homer and starter Jeremy Hellickson drove in three runs in the frame. Over the past three games, the D-backs have scored 30 runs on 47 hits. They've scored 13 or more runs in consecutive games for the second time in club history, the other time being Sept. 26-27, 2001.

"We came out and really swung the bats, very impressive," D-backs manager Chip Hale said. "Good game plan and they executed it and just kept it going, even the pitcher. It's good to see."

Phillies starter David Buchanan didn't make it through the second, lasting just 1 2/3 frames. But before he left, Buchanan became the first Phillies pitcher to allow 11 or more runs in a single inning since Hal Kelleher allowed 12 in the eighth in a relief appearance against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on May 5, 1938. Buchanan also became the first Phillies starter to allow 11 or more runs in a start since Al Jurisch allowed 14 over eight innings against the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds on June 28, 1947.

"There's not a lot to talk about," Philadelphia interim manager Pete Mackanin said. "We were out of it after the second inning."

Hellickson does it all: In the midst of the 11-run rally, Hellickson got in on the action with a two-run single up the middle that pushed the lead to 4-1, becoming the first D-backs pitcher to have two RBIs in a game since Brandon McCarthy on June 16, 2014. It was also Hellickson's first hit since May 30. He added an RBI single in the frame, becoming the second Arizona pitcher to record two hits in an inning. The first was Edwin Jackson on April 11, 2010. Meanwhile, on the mound, Hellickson threw eight innings and allowed just one unearned run. More >

Hellickson's terrific game

Phillies lose Franco: Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco has been one of the team's best stories as he has played himself into National League Rookie of the Year consideration. But he left the game in the first inning with a bruised left wrist after Hellickison drilled him with a pitch. Fortunately for Franco and the Phillies, X-rays were negative. He is not sure how much time he will miss.

"I was scared," Franco said. "The only thing that I think about when the ball hit me was it was broken." More >

Franco exits the game

Peralta is on fire: Peralta matched a career-high with five RBIs when he singled in A.J. Pollock in the fifth, after he hit his second career grand slam in the second. Over the past three games, Peralta has gone 10-for-14 with eight RBIs.

"He's able to obviously hit the inside pitch, but also hit for power the other way, which with his strength he should be able to do," Hale said. "He just keeps getting better and better."

Peralta's RBI single to center

Herrera's streak snapped: Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera went 0-for-4 to snap his hitting streak at 13 games. It was the longest hitting streak by a Phillies rookie since Marlon Byrd had a 15-gamer in 2003.

"In these situations, you've got to man up and get out of it yourself. [Mackanin] gave me a chance. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get out of there." -- Buchanan

"I'll sit in the dugout as long as I need to, let the guys score as many runs as they want. I did get kind of hot out there on the bases that one inning." -- Hellickson, on long layoff from pitching in 11-run second

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Buchanan is the first pitcher in Major League Baseball to allow 11 or more runs in a single inning since the Astros' Jason Jennings allowed 11 in the first inning against the Padres on July 29, 2007. It is the first time the Phillies have allowed 13 or more runs in consecutive games since July 8-9, 1993.

Phillies: Coming off a quality outing against the Padres, Phillies rookie righty Aaron Nola starts Wednesday's series finale at 3:40 p.m. ET. He'll try to cool off the D-backs, who scored 26 runs in the first two games of the series.

D-backs: Chase Anderson makes his second start since coming off the disabled list in the series finale at 12:40 p.m. MST. Last time out, Anderson tossed seven scoreless innings in a win over the Reds. He's faced the Phillies once before in his career, allowing one run in 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision on May 15.
