Diamondbacks 4, Giants 5

Another road-game, another one-run loss. The Diamondbacks couldn't take advantage of their first hit by a pitcher all year: David Hernandez blew a two-run lead in the eighth, and Tony Sipp took the loss in the ninth.

Neither pitcher did well out of the gates, each side scoring twice. The Diamondbacks got their runs on a two-RBI single by Cody Ross, but the Giants came right back, getting three consecutive doubles in the bottom of the first, to tie things up. The tie was broken by, of all people, Wade Miley, who became the first left-handed batting starting pitcher to hit a homer at AT&T Park ever. When Eric Chavez also went deep, in less spectacular fashion, things were looking decent for Arizona, with a 4-2 lead after seven innings.

However, David Hernandez's unfortunate habit of giving up important home-runs continued: in this case, a two-run shot to Buster Posey with one out in the eighth tied the game up. Worse was to follow in the ninth, as Tony Sipp gave up a lead-off single, which was bunted over, and then singled home, giving the Giants a walk-off. Miley deserved a better fate, getting a no-decision for his 6.2 innings, allowing the two first inning runs, but nothing else, and scattering seven hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.

Full recap to follow shortly. Tomorrow, it's another night game, with Patrick Corbin starting for Arizona, while San Francisco counter with Matt Cain.
