Arizona has replaced third baseman Eduardo Escobar, its only star of the season, to the Milwaukee Brewers for two possibilities.

Two days prior the trading deadline, Rangers pulled Joey Gallo minutes prior the game for what they described as non-medical reasons. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the New York Yankees have reached an agreement to acquire the All-Star slugger. The person spoke on condition of anonymity as this move has not yet been announced and is subject to approval by the medical records of the players involved.

David Peralta and Daulton Varsho hit singles for the Diamondbacks, who won despite taking only three hits. They have won only the fourth time in their 25 singles matches this season.

“We had a very emotional day and we won a baseball game,” Diamondbacks manager Tori Lovulue said. “So elated of our guys to divide them from that, and quit them from that.”

Escobar then returned to Phoenix with the team following the game.

Rangers coach Chris Woodward said it took 15-20 minutes prior the start of the game when he learned that Gallo needed to scratch.

“It’s forever painful no matter who he is, especially a guy like that,” Woodward said.

Woodward said he wasn’t really surprised about any potential deals, considering how much Gallo’s name was mentioned, but said there was a bit of a shock realizing it was likely to happen.

Baumgarner (5-6), who turns 32 on Sunday, threw 61 of his 84 attack throws in his first triumph since May 11.

Bumgarner has a 2.00 ERA in 18 rounds since returning from the injured list on July 16 due to a shoulder infection. He attributes his recent success to “just serving the pitches, dominating the area, and staying out of the middle.”

Tyler Kleppard, who got his 60-day injury slate back on July 21, played the ninth game goalless to score his first preserve since July 22, 2018.

Farshaw broke the tie 2-2 ahead of the eighth. Homer pulled his fifth of the season to the right field bench as the first noise Brett Martin faced (2-3).

Texas star Jordan Lyles rebounded following allowing second-placed Homer to Peralta and the Arizona State Palace to two in seven rounds. 14 hitters in a row retired at one time.

Peralta hit the field 0-2 on the fifth of this year, and the first since May 15. That was the number 25 allowed by Lyles this season, who ranks second in the majors in that category.

Texas advanced 2-1 in fourth. Adolis Garcia, unhurt in the previous 15 hits, led twice into the gap left of center. The rookie scored an All-Star over Nathaniel Lowe’s single opposite left. Lowe finished third in the Andy Ibanez double and scored a goal in the sacrifice fly by Charlie Colperson.

Linebacker D tied 2-2 in the seventh inning. Josh VanMeter led with a double third and stole a third, a call following the Texas Challenge was upheld prior he was eventually scored in the sacrifice fly by Andrew Young. Lyle carried the rules by walking to Christian Walker and Peralta.
