Another Lincecum-Goldschmidt face off- no points for guessing how this turned out

AT&T may be a pitcher's park, but it didn't seem like it in the early innings of Wednesday's game. Starting with a Paul Goldschmidt home run off Tim Lincecum in the first inning for three runs, the Giants and the Diamondbacks combined for four home runs during the game. Gerardo Parra joined the fun with his first home run of the season, falling a double short of hitting for the cycle off of San Francisco.

On the mound, Bronson Arroyo gave up a couple of home runs to Michael Morse and Buster Posey, but at least limited the damage there by doing it with the bases empty. Arroyo's five innings may not have been too impressive, but he kept the DBacks in the lead, and then handed the ball over to Josh Collmenter for the second half of the game. Collmenter is reportedly being stretched out to prepare him for a switch to the starting rotation, and he did well with four scoreless innings, picking up his first career save.
