Early runs aren’t enough as Giants lose in Arizona

PHOENIX — A.J. Pollock broke out of an 0-for-13 start to the season with three hits, scoring twice and driving in a run, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants, 5-4, on Tuesday.

Wade Miley (1-1) gave up four runs in the first inning, and then blanked the Giants for the next six, retiring 15 in a row in one stretch.

Gerardo Parra had two hits and the sacrifice fly that scored to the go-ahead run in the sixth inning.

Brandon Belt hit a three-run home run in the first, his second homer in as many games.

Addison Reed, who gave up the game-winning home run to Buster Posey on Monday, pitched a scoreless ninth for his first save with the Diamondbacks.

Pinch hitter Hector Sanchez reached second with one out in the ninth when Arizona rookie shortstop Chris Owings misjudged a pop fly to short left and it dropped for a double. But Brandon Crawford fouled out to the catcher and Juan Perez struck out looking to end the game.

Juan Guiterrez (0-1) went two innings to take the loss in relief of Matt Cain.

The perils of the new challenge rule were on display in the bottom of the fourth inning. With two outs, Giants manager Bruce Bochy challenged a safe call on an attempt to pick off Pollock at first.

Bochy lost the challenge, so he didn’t have one to use moments later when Pollock scored from third on a passed ball. Replays showed Cain’s glove appeared to touch Pollock’s foot before the Diamondback base runner crossed the plate.

The run cut the Giants’ lead to 4-3.

The Diamondbacks scored twice in the sixth to take the lead. Owings singled with one out, stole second and scored on Pollock’s ground-rule double to left-center. Miley singled, then Pollock scored from third on Parra’s sacrifice fly to left, sliding in barely ahead of Perez’s throw.

San Francisco jumped on Miley in a hurry. Singles by Angel Pagan, Pablo Sandoval and Posey brought in the first run. Then Belt hit Miley’s 1-0 pitch into the swimming pool area in right field and it was 4-0.

Arizona got two in the bottom of the first. Parra led off with a single and came home on Goldschmidt’s double to deep right-center. Goldschmidt scored on Martin Prado’s single.

Cain left with a 4-3 lead after five innings. He gave up two earned runs, struck out two and walked two.
