Recap: San Francisco vs. Arizona

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Brandon McCarthy tossed eight strong innings to guide the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants in the third of a four-game set.

Just a night removed from nearly having a perfect game thrown against them, the Diamondbacks pounded out 10 hits, with Paul Goldschmidt going 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored, while Gerardo Parra had two hits and an RBI for the Diamondbacks, who have won three of four.

McCarthy (4-9) gave up just six hits and a run with six strikeouts to win for the second time in his past three starts.

"Since he's been hurt he's come back and really worked hard," said Arizona manager Kirk Gibson about McCarthy. "He's been pitching really well for us lately after making some adjustments. He's throwing the ball more natural now."

On Friday, Yusmeiro Petit had a perfect game going through 8 2/3 innings, but Eric Chavez punched a single to right with the count full to spoil Petit's chance at the record books.

Marco Scutaro had an RBI while Matt Cain (8-9) gave up both runs on eight hits in 6 1/3 innings for the Giants, who have lost four of six.

"McCarthy threw the ball really well and it was moving all over," said Cain. "Games like this come down to who makes more mistakes and I did today."

San Francisco got on the board in the third inning as Brandon Crawford led off with a single, moved to second on a sac bunt from Cain, and came home thanks to Scutaro's single.

Arizona, though, tied the game in the fourth. Goldschmidt led off with a single and moved to second on Chavez's walk. Three batters later, Parra singled to right to tie the game.

In the fifth, the Diamondbacks went up 2-1 as Adam Eaton walked and Goldschmidt followed with a triple.

San Francisco left a man on base in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, and McCarthy set the team down in order in the eighth.

Brad Ziegler pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his ninth save of the season.

Game Notes
