Rubby De La Rosa outpitched Madison Bumgarner, and a big defensive gaffe by the Giants was cashed in by the Diamondbacks as they took the series opener.

Rubby De La Rosa allowed only one hit over his 5.2 innings of work, though did walk four batters, striking out five. Three of those came in the sixth inning, which marked the end of De La Rosa's night, but Andrew Chafin came in and extinguished the Giants' sole threat of the night. Randall Delgado struck out the side in the seventh, Daniel Hudson worked a hitless and eighth, and although Brad Ziegler allowed a one-out hit - only San Francisco's second of the night - he struck out the next two batters faced, to lock down the victory.

The Diamondbacks had their first scoring opportunity in the fifth, when Yasmany Tomas found Triples Alley at AT&T Park, leading off the inning. However - and, stop me if you've heard this one before - Brandon Drury, Nick Ahmed and De La Rosa were unable to get him home from third. Arizona did all their scoring next time up though. A.J. Pollock singled, and one out later, Paul Goldschmidt doubled down the left-field line, the ball skittering under the glove of the left-fielder to the wall. Pollock scored, Goldie ending up on third and coming home on a ground-out by Welington Castillo. Goldschmidt was on base four times, with two hits and two walks, and Pollock had two hits.
