Christian Walker’s impressive performance led the Arizona Diamondbacks to a resounding 12-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Walker’s solo home run in the first inning set the tone, and he continued to drive in runs with a single and a bases-loaded double in the fourth inning.

The Diamondbacks’ offensive onslaught was supported by starter Jordan Montgomery, who pitched five strong innings, allowing only one unearned run and striking out seven.

Corbin Carroll, the 2023 NL Rookie of the Year, left the game in the seventh inning after making an awkward throw from center field, but is scheduled for an MRI on Monday and is hopeful to return for the Washington series. Manager Torey Lovullo praised Montgomery’s performance, noting his effective off-speed pitches and engagement with the game.

The Diamondbacks’ win was a bounce-back from a tough loss the previous night, and they jumped on White Sox starter Drew Thorpe early, scoring three runs in the first inning.

Thorpe struggled with command, walking five and striking out none, and was relieved by Chad Kuhl in the fourth inning. The Diamondbacks’ offense continued to roll, with Jake McCarthy and Ketel Marte contributing to the scoring.

Despite the White Sox’s 11 hits, they fell short, with Tommy Pham and Andrew Vaughn each having three hits. The Diamondbacks’ win was a testament to their strong team performance, and they look to carry this momentum into their next series.
