Diamondbacks 4, Giants 3

Ralph Freso

Of course, it had to be this way. On Alumni Night, the D-backs manufactured another walkoff win.

Trevor Cahill wobbled out of trouble in the first, leaving the bases loaded, and then settled down nicely for the next five innings. However, the offense struggled early on against Ryan Vogelsong, and so this game remained scoreless until the fourth, when RBI singles by Miguel Montero and Willie Bloomquist, sandwiching a Gerardo Parra sacrifice fly, gave the Diamondbacks a 3-0 lead.

Unfortunately, Cahill seemed to run out of gas entirely in the seventh. After a lead-off home-run, he allowed a walk and and an RBI triple, to put the tying run at third with one out. Eury de la Rosa came on in relief and got the second out with a K, but Josh Collmenter couldn't hold the lead, allowing a single to tie the game and cost Cahill the W. He went 6.1 innings, allowing three runs on nine hits and three walks, with three strikeouts.

Neither side threatened much, but in the bottom of the ninth, Bloomquist singled and was bunted over by Adam Eaton. The inevitable intentional walk to Paul Goldsschmidt followed, but Eric Chavez made the Giants pay, sending Bloomquist home with a hit into the left-center gap. Martin Prado finished the night with three hits, as did Bloomquist, and Brad Ziegler vultured his eighth win of the year.

Full recap will follow, as soon as I find whoever's writing it. :) It's back to Chase tomorrow afternoon, for the series finale, with Patrick Corbin taking on a name from the D-backs past, in Yusmeiro Petit.
