Then Wednesday night he beat out an infield hit and eventually came around to score the D-backs' first run.

Thursday, after David Peralta led off the game with a single, Dyson hit a 1-0 fastball from Ben Lively over the wall in right to give the D-backs a 2-0 lead.

Arizona scored a run later in the inning on an RBI double by Chris Owings.
