SAN FRANCISCO –
Robbie Ray pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning despite some control issues, Jake Lamb hit a bases-loaded triple and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Chris Iannetta added an RBI single, and A.J. Pollock singled, scored and made a stellar play in center field to rob Aaron Hill of extra bases in the third. The Diamondbacks won for the fourth time in six games against San Francisco.
Arizona improved to 7-2, matching its best start in franchise history.
Ray (1-0) settled in after pitching out of a pair of early jams and overcame matching his career high of five walks. He struck out eight and allowed four hits over 6 2/3 innings.
The left-hander also got some help from Pollock, who made a running catch on Aaron Hill’s deep fly ball to center in the third then slammed into the wall before quickly getting up to hold a runner at first.
BOX SCORE: Diamondbacks 4, Giants 3
Fernando Rodney struck out pinch-hitter Brandon Crawford with the tying run at second to end the game. Rodney allowed two runs but earned his third save.
Eduardo Nunez had four hits and an RBI for San Francisco.
Lamb got to Jeff Samardzija (0-2) with his triple in the third to extend his hitting streak to eight games after the Giants starter gave up back-to-back singles and a one-out walk to load the bases. Gorkys Hernandez crashed into the center field wall chasing the ball, allowing all three runners to score easily.
Samardzija allowed three runs over 6 2/3 innings with four walks and seven strikeouts.
