Bell allowed a leadoff homer to Justin Ruggiano to open the ninth, and put the tying run on base when he walked Giancarlo Stanton with no out.
He was able to work out of the jam with three straight outs, however, recording his 13th save in 15 tries, in a 3-1 win. Bell allowed a game-winning home run in the teams' first game Monday. He now has a 4.40 ERA on the season, and has allowed one home run in each of the last fur outings.
Ross took Marlins reliever Mike Dunn deep for a three-run home run that provided all of the team's offense, in a 3-1 win. It was just Ross' third home run of the season, and first since May 27, nearly a month.
"Honestly I was going up there with blurry vision half the time at the plate," Ross said. "It's hard enough to hit in this league when you've got good vision, as opposed to going up with blurry vision. But it's just one of those things where you don't want to make excuses, but it's a true story. It was tough."
With starter Trevor Cahill leaving Wednesday's game against the Marlins due to a hip injury, the
Collmenter, who had not pitched since June 12, needed just 78 pitches to work his six scoreless innings, limiting the Marlins to one hit and one walk. He struck out seven batters as well.
"It was a great performance," manager Kirk Gibson told ArizonaSports.com after the game. "He was really rolling there. He had the magic wand out there and got rolling."
Despite Collmenter's big game out of the bullpen, he was saddled with a no-decision, as the Diamondbacks did not score until after he left the game. Collmenter now has a 2.43 ERA on the season, while working mostly in long relief.
Manager Kirk Gibson told the Republic that Cahill's injury is serious, but he was pulled from the start to ensure that he did not change his mechanics while throwing to compensate for the hip soreness.
His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Nationals.
"We haven't talked about it," manager Kirk Gibson told MLB.com. "It's possible he could start again, but it hasn't been determined. A lot depends on how we get through the weekend."
Delgado allowed just two runs in seven innings of work Tuesday against the Marlins, but might be needed to pitch out of the bullpen prior to Sunday, especially after Trevor Cahill lasted just one inning Wednesday. Delgado fought for a spot in the rotation in spring training, but could no win the No. 5 role.
