The Diamondback took advantage of some early wildness by Ryan Vogelsong, and held on to clinch the series, and give Allen Webster a debut W.

Ryan Vogelsong walked four batters in the first inning, taking almost forty pitches and going through the entire order before getting the final out, his opposing number. The frame included two walks with the bases loaded, and ended with Arizona three runs up. Paul Goldschmidt added an RBI single in the fourth that marked the end of Vogelsong's day. It also just about marked the end of the Arizona offense, as they managed only one hit and no walks the rest of the way, against Yusmeiro Petit and the San Francisco bullpen.

Early on, it looked like Allen Webster was doing his best Vogelsong impression, as he walked two of the first four batters faced. However, he then settled down, retiring 14 in a row, and much like Chase Anderson last night, taking a no-hitter of his own into the second half of the game. Webster's effort ended with one out in the sixth, and he was clearly flagging by that point, being lifted with two down. Andrew Chafin mopped up, leaving Webster with a line of two runs, on two hits and three walks, with a pair of strikeouts, over 5.2 innings. Chafin, Randall Delgado and Brad Ziegler took things the rest of the way, and extend the Giants' home losing streak.
