Nick Ahmed had two hits and three RBIs and Jake McCarthy collected his first two major league hits for the Diamondbacks.

Arizona left-hander Madison Bumgarner (7-9) allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings. The four-time All Star struck out three and walked four.

Segura singled on an 0-2 pitch to start the first, and J.T. Realmuto then worked a walk after falling behind 0-2.

Galvis added a sacrifice fly to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead after the first inning for the second straight game.

McCarthy looped a two-out double down the right-field line in the second inning for his first major league hit and first RBI, cutting the lead to 2-1.

Pavin Smith and Ahmed had back-to-back one-out doubles for Arizona in the seventh to trim the lead to 5-2.
