Arrieta ripped a home run to left field in the third inning Sunday afternoon at AT&T Park to hand the Phillies a 1-0 lead over the Giants. It snapped the Phillies' scoreless streak at 22 innings. They had not scored since the seventh inning Thursday at Dodger Stadium.

Arrieta's sixth career homer came off a 1-0 fastball from Giants right-hander Dereck Rodriguez. The ball left his bat at 100.8 mph and traveled a projected 375 feet, according to Statcast™.
