Coming into his at-bat in the seventh inning Tuesday night, Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb was hitting .143 against left-handed pitchers this season.
But with the bases loaded and the D-backs trailing the division-leading Dodgers 3-2, Lamb decided those numbers didn't matter, as he hit his second-career grand slam, off southpaw Tony Watson. It was Lamb's second grand slam of his career.
The slam led to "Beat L.A." chants from the D-backs fans, who tolerated "Let's go Dodgers" chants from fans of the visiting team throughout the night.

The win moved the D-backs a half-game ahead of the Rockies for the first Wild Card spot in the National League, and it snapped the Dodgers' four-game winning streak. The Dodgers had won 13 of their last 14 games.
