PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks got to play an early round of Home Run Derby in Philly.

The Diamondbacks hit three straight home runs to open the game against Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jerad Eickhoff on Monday night.

Jarrod Dyson hit the first pitch of the game to right field for his fourth homer of the season. Ketel Marte followed with his 16th home run on a drive to right. David Peralta finished the longball barrage when he went deep to center for his ninth homer.

It was the first time a team had hit three straight home runs to begin the first inning since the Diamondbacks did it on July 21, 2017, at home against Washington ace Max Scherzer.

Eickhoff had allowed 11 homers in 54 1-3 innings this season.

The game had been delayed 35 minutes by rain, and more rain fell once play began.

Arizona connected a day after the Nationals hit four home runs in a row in the eighth inning at San Diego.
