Arizona Diamondbacks 2, San Francisco Giants 1

Anthony Banda and Paul Goldschmidt were the key players as the D-backs won their third in a row.

Anthony Banda gave the D-backs six solid innings. Or, at least, five solid innings and a wobbly one, where he walked in the tying run. But overall: six innings, one run allowed on three hits and four walks was more than good enough. Jorge De La Rosa and David Hernandez worked scoreless frames before Fernando Rodney came in, for his third save in consecutive games.

On offense, once again it was the Paul Goldschmidt show. His fourth-inning triple scored A.J. Pollock and gave Arizona the lead. After Banda's wildness had helped allow the Giants to tie things up, Goldschmidt then banged the ball off the wall in left for a very long RBI single, this time scoring Peralta. That was all the offense the Diamondbacks could muster, but it was just enough. Goldschmidt had half of our teams six hits, with Peralta getting a hit and a walk.
