D-backs offense explodes in third straight win

PHOENIX (AP) – Luis Gonzalez doubled and scored the tying run, then drove in two more with a triple and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants for the third straight time, 11-5 on Thursday night.

Arizona's Doug DeVore had his first two major league RBIs, one on his first home run.

The Diamondbacks scored 25 runs in the three victories that matched their longest winning streak of the season.

The Giants had won 10 in a row before dropping the final three of the four-game series.

Brandon Webb gave up four runs in the first inning, two earned, then blanked the Giants for the next five.

Webb (3-5), who allowed four hits but walked five, became the first Arizona starter other than Randy Johnson to win since May 10 – a span of 22 games.

Six Arizona players had at least two hits apiece.

Alex Cintron was 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBIs.

Giants starter Jerome Williams (4-4) allowed six runs on eight hits in five innings.

With two outs in the fifth and the Diamondbacks down 4-3, Gonzalez doubled down the right-field line, then scored on a single by Shea Hillenbrand, who advanced to second on the throw home.

Chad Tracy lined a single past diving second baseman Neifi Perez to put Arizona up 5-4.

Cintron's double to the left-field gap scored Tracy from third, and it was 6-4.

Gonzalez's two-out triple to the wall in right-center brought two more home in the sixth to make it 8-4.

DeVore's solo homer off Wayne Franklin in the seventh put Arizona up 9-5.

The game got off to an ugly start for Arizona.

Edgardo Alfonzo singled with one out, then Marquis Grissom doubled.

Barry Bonds was walked intentionally for the 38th time this season, loading the bases.

Alfonzo scored from third on a wild pitch when Webb tried to apply the tag before he caught the throw from catcher Brett Mayne.

Pedro Feliz walked to load the bases again, and A.J.

Pierzynski grounded a double-play ball to first.

But Hillenbrand's throw to second bounced off Feliz's helmet, and two runs scored.

Perez's sacrifice fly brought in the fourth run of the inning.

Arizona cut it to 4-3 in the second.

Hillenbrand and Tracy singled, then Cintron doubled a run home.

DeVore brought another run in with an infield single, his first major league RBI.
