Jake Lamb provided the power, Ketel Marte supplied the speed and Daniel Descalso brought the hammer as the Diamondbacks pounded their way back from a five-run deficit with some late-inning heroics Monday night on their way to a 9-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Chase Field. The victory pushed Arizona's winning streak to four games. The Diamondbacks have won 10 of their past 13 and have a three-game lead over the Dodgers for first place in the National League West. They wouldn't have secured their 16th comeback win of the season without scoring five runs in the seventh just to tie the score. They blew it open by adding four more runs in the eighth. BOX SCORE: Diamondbacks 9, Pirates
