    National League Game Summary - San Francisco at Arizona



    (Tuesday, April 1st)

    Final Score: Arizona 5, San Francisco 4

    Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Gerardo Parra's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth inning proved to be the difference as the Arizona Diamondbacks took a 5-4 win over the San Francisco Giants in the second tilt of a four-game set at Chase Field.

    Parra also had two hits and a run scored while A.J. Pollock finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Paul Goldschmidt and Martin Prado added an RBI apiece for the Diamondbacks, who picked up their first win of the year. Arizona had lost two games to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Australia last month before dropping the series opener on Monday.

    Wade Miley (1-1) allowed four runs on six hits over seven innings to earn the win and Addison Reed, who blew a save opportunity on Monday, bounced back and stranded a runner in the ninth to seal the win.

    "The offense did a great job of kind of picking me up," Miley said. "I was down. I gave up the four-spot and was able to kind of overcome it. I knew if I just held it right there, we've got a pretty good lineup in here, and we'd have a pretty good chance to get back on top."

    Brandon Belt clubbed a three-run homer and Buster Posey drove in a run for the Giants, who saw starter Matt Cain allow three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits over five frames.

    The D-backs entered the sixth trailing 4-3, but scored a pair of runs off Juan Gutierrez (0-1) to take the lead. Chris Owings singled and stole second before Pollock laced a ground-rule double to left-center field. After Miley singled to put runners on the corners, Parra lifted a sacrifice fly to left to plate the go-ahead run. Juan Perez delivered a nearly perfect throw to home, but Posey did not block the plate and couldn't apply the tag to Pollock in time.

    Posey suffered a season-ending injury in 2011 in a play at the plate after a runner attempted to run him over, leaving the 2012 NL MVP with a broken left leg.

    Will Harris and Reed combined for two shutout innings to hammer down the win.

    The Giants scored all four of their runs in the opening inning. After Angel Pagan and Pablo Sandoval singled around a Hunter Pence pop out, Posey singled to left to score Pagan. Two batter later Belt clubbed a three-run shot over the wall in right-center for a 4-0 lead.

    Arizona countered with a pair of runs in the home half. Parra singled to open the frame before scoring on Goldschmidt's double to center. Prado followed with a single to push Goldschmidt across and make it a 4-2 game.

    Arizona added a run in the fourth on a controversial call. Pollock reached on a one-out single and moved to third on a Parra double. With Aaron Hill batting, Cain threw a wild pitch that bounced off the backstop and right to Posey, who shoveled to Cain at the dish. Pollock slid in and appeared to lift his leg over Cain's glove before touching the plate safely. Replays showed that Pollock had slid into Cain's glove, but the Giants elected not to challenge the call.

    "He was out. I had him," Cain said. "I saw what Cooper saw. He saw that it looked like he went over the plate but he went through the top of my glove to go over it."

    Game Notes

    Miley struck out five and walked one ... Arizona's Trevor Cahill is expected to take the mound on Wednesday to battle San Francisco's Tim Hudson ... The D- backs were 3-for-10 with RISP ... The Giants finished 2-for-7 with RISP ... Belt also homered Monday.
