The Diamondbacks ended a six-game losing streak with the victory when Daniel Descalso singled in a run in the bottom of the eighth. Travis Shaw knocked in Milwaukee’s only run with a double in the fourth. Trevor Williams took the loss, although it was Boone Logan who gave up the game-winning hit.

Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt will have surgery on his shoulder later this week. Vogt sought a second opinion Tuesday and the need for the procedure was confirmed. An M-R-I of his shoulder in Milwaukee had revealed damage to the labrum, rotator cuff, and capsule. That indicates an extensive injury which will be season-ending but could also threaten to end the 33-year-old’s career. He suffered a strained shoulder during spring training and was rehabbing with Class Double-A Biloxi when he did the damage while making a throw to third base.
