Giants Swept In Arizona By Diamondbacks

PHOENIX (AP) — Miguel Montero hit a two-run double and had three RBIs to support Josh Collmenter’s strong seven innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 5-2 on Sunday for a three-game sweep.

Aaron Hill and Colin Cowgill also had run-scoring hits for the Diamondbacks, who have won six of seven heading into a season-ending series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Collmenter (10-10) allowed five hits and two runs for his second win against the Giants this season. Collmenter struck out four and walked one.

J.J. Putz pitched the ninth for his 45th save.

Diamondbacks right fielder Justin Upton was hit on the front of the helmet by Giants starter Tim Lincecum (13-14) in the first. He initially remained in the game and scored Arizona’s second run, but left after the inning for precautionary reasons.

Arizona remained a game behind Milwaukee in an attempt to gain home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
