San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Cody Ross provided a two-run single and
Brad Ziegler benefited from an unconventional double play in the ninth to
secure an Arizona Diamondbacks' 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants.
The D'backs held the Giants scoreless for the first eight frames, but Ziegler
was in a jam after the first two batters for the Giants reached in the ninth.
He got Kensuke Tanaka to ground to short where Cliff Pennington fielded the
ball and flipped to second to get the force out, but second baseman Aaron
Hill's throw sailed wide of first base and Hunter Pence came in to score.
Tanaka tried to advance on the error, but was erased when first baseman Paul
Goldschmidt fired a strike to second from foul territory. That left the bases
empty and the Giants could not produce another threat.
