Arizona Diamondbacks: Greinke's gem too much for the Giants

Diamondbacks beat Giants 3-2 for Ray's 5th straight win

Diamondbacks beat Giants 3-2 for Ray's 5th straight win

The 2017 Giants are in the midst of one of the worst seasons in franchise history, but that doesn't mean the starting nine is completely unwatchable.

Ray reached 200 in 148.1 innings pitched, the third-fewest innings needed for a D-backs pitcher to get to the total.

Arizona has some solid bats this season.

Greinke and Brandon Drury had two hits apiece for the Diamondbacks, who improved to a season-best 25 games over.500. But they blew a one-run lead in the ninth.

Goldschmidt homered with two outs in the top of the first with David Peralta aboard on a leadoff single. It was the first base on balls a Diamondbacks starter had given up since Wednesday.

The Giants played a clean game, at least.

Paul Goldschmidt provided all the necessary offense in Saturday's win with a two-run home run. Peralta had a hit and a run on Saturday; Goldschmidt popped a two-run homer. He lost his fifth straight decision and is winless in last seven starts.

Goldschmidt also hit the first pitch, raising his season RBI total to 115. Goldy steps up to the plate and gets us two runs.

It has been a difficult and soul-sucking season for everyone in the Giants clubhouse, and one unfortunate consequence is that all the failure has made Pence's relentless optimism harsh on the ear.

Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth for his 38th save.

"When Greinke is on and hitting the edges, he's real tough", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

Greinke has matched up five times against Bumgarner, either with the Dodgers or Diamondbacks, and Greinke's team has won all five times. Greinke slid headfirst into third base during the fifth inning, getting tagged out on a fielder's choice.

Manager Torey Lovullo would rather Greinke be more cautious down the stretch. Walker has been throwing pretty well and I like him to continue here. "Tell him to never do that again". Fellow Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Gaylord Perry were on hand. The club will meet just three more times after Sunday. The rookie has faced the Diamondbacks twice, going 0-1 with a 3.27 ERA. Left-hander Robbie Ray notched his 14th win in a 3-2 triumph Friday night, after which right-hander Zack Greinke picked up his 17th victory in Saturday's triumph.

The team would add another five hits, but no other run would score. The Giants got only two hits, matching a season low, in Saturday's game and were shut out for an NL-leading 11th time. OF Gorkys Hernandez is day to day with a left wrist sprain. Hernandez is doubtful for Sunday's game too, Bochy said.

Diamondbacks: RHP Taijuan Walker (9-7, 3.32 ERA) will pitch Sunday's series finale. Walker is 3-0 with a 1.54 ERA over his last four starts and is 2-0 with a 0.55 ERA in his last three road starts.

Over on the Giants' side, they're going with RHP Chris Stratton on Sunday. He wasn't contributing anything of value, and the only reason that the Giants kept designating other players for assignment is because they didn't have anyone besides Denard Span whom they could stick in center field beyond an emergency assignment.
