Pennington had three hits and two RBIs for the Diamondbacks and
Miguel Montero drove in two runs. Arizona starter Randall Delgado
lasted just 3 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and six hits, before
J.J. Putz (1-0) worked a 1-2-3 ninth and Addison Reed a perfect 10th
for his third save.
Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong went five innings, allowing four runs
and seven hits before Yusmeiro Petit (0-1) surrendered the go-ahead
run in the 10th. Buster Posey, Hunter Pence, Michael Morse and
Brandon Crawford had two hits apiece for San Francisco, with Morse
driving in two runs.
Vogelsong's control got him in trouble in the second as he hit
Montero with a pitch and walked Mark Trumbo with one out before
Pennington knocked in both with a single to center, and Montero's
double drove in two more runs and gave the Diamondbacks a 4-1 lead
in the third. The Giants plated another in their half of the third
on Posey's successful squeeze bunt, another in the fourth on
Crawford's RBI double and took a 5-4 lead when Morse delivered a
two-out, two-run double to right off reliever Oliver Perez.

Arizona looked to have a golden opportunity to take the lead after
loading the bases with none out in the seventh, but Jean Machi got
Martin Prado to hit into a pitcher-to-home-to-first double play and
Montero struck out against San Francisco's fourth reliever of the
game, Javier Lopez. The Diamondbacks got even in the eighth,
however, as Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval made a throwing
error with two out, bringing home Gerardo Parra with the tying run.
GAME NOTEBOOK: Sandoval went 0-for-3 with two walks to drop his
average to .132 and is still looking for his first multi-hit game of
the season. … San Francisco OF Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 but is still
hitting .442 in the leadoff spot. … Trumbo did not drive in a run in
the series after collecting 13 in the first nine games.
