Suarez homered as part of a 2-for-4 game with two runs scored and two RBI in Monday's win over San Francisco.
Suarez is hitting a ridiculous .375/.423/.708 with two homers, two doubles and four RBI over his past seven games. With 17 home runs, he now ranks 12th among qualified third basemen in homers, but unfortunately, power has been his only bright spot this season. His batting line sits at an underwhelming .234/.301/.414.
DeSclafani (6-0) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts but still picked up the win Monday over the Giants.
This was DeSclafani's first real cheap win, as he had thrown six consecutive quality starts entering Monday night. He was hurt by a pair of home runs, the first time all season he has allowed multiple homers in a start. DeSclafani still owns a solid 3.09 ERA supported by a slick 46:11 K:BB.
Godley (3-1) gave up five runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.2 innings Sunday, but still came away with a win against the Reds.
The Arizona offense blasted four home runs on the day, allowing Godley to pocket a victory despite his rough outing. He's now given up at least four runs in each of his last three starts, pushing his ERA to an unsightly 5.88. Godley's next scheduled to take the mound Friday on the road against the Dodgers.
Clippard was called upon to protect a four-run lead in the ninth inning Sunday and promptly gave up three runs on two walks and a Jay Bruce homer before striking out the side to preserve a 9-8 win over the Reds.
He also walked a third batter after the home run. Clippard hadn't gotten any work since last Sunday, an outing in which he was also tagged for three runs, so his first week as the Diamondbacks' closer hasn't exactly gone according to plan. If he doesn't start stringing together some clean innings, manager Chip Hale may turn to Daniel Hudson or another reliever to handle ninth-inning duties instead.
Gosselin got the start at second base and hit second Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run in a win over the Reds.
It was his first start since July 6, but Gosselin certainly made the most of it. He's now hitting .308/.379/.462 in 26 at-bats on the month though, which might earn him some more playing time going forward.
