Drew lifts Diamondbacks over Giants in extras

Apr 18, 2011 - 2:46 AM Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Stephen Drew singled home Justin Upton in the bottom of the 12th inning to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Chase Field.

Upton and Chris Young drew consecutive one-out walks before San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy replaced Dan Runzler (1-2) with Javier Lopez. Drew then hit a grounder through the right side and Nate Schierholtz's throw home was not in time.

"I got a pitch I could handle and just put a good swing on it," said Drew.

Drew added a two-run triple for Arizona, which salvaged the finale of this three-game set. Upton belted a solo home run.

Diamondbacks starter Barry Enright gave up four runs on four hits with two walks and five strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. Josh Collmenter (1-0) tossed two scoreless frames to pick up the win in his major league debut.

"He did a great job. Overall, just a great contribution from everybody," said Arizona manager Kirk Gibson.

Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval hit back-to-back home runs to highlight a four-run sixth inning for the Giants, who were seeking their fifth straight victory.

"We won our last three series. That's all you really want to do," said Aubrey Huff, who had a solo homer. "It's tough to sweep, especially on the road."

San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner surrendered four runs and eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Arizona loaded the bases in the third inning with three consecutive one-out singles by Willie Bloomquist, Kelly Johnson and Upton. Young then lofted a sacrifice fly before Drew smacked a two-run triple to right field for a 3-0 lead.

Huff belted his solo home run in the fourth, but Arizona got the run back an inning later on Upton's blast to left-center field.

The Giants pushed across four runs to move ahead in the sixth. Aaron Rowand led off with a double, took third on a Freddy Sanchez single and scored on Huff's sac fly. Posey then tied the game with a two-run homer to left field.

Esmerling Vasquez replaced Enright and Sandoval greeted the reliever with a shot to right field to put San Francisco up 5-4.

Arizona rallied with two outs in the eighth. Jeremy Affeldt took over on the mound after Ramon Ramirez issued a walk to Xavier Nady. An infield hit by Miguel Montero put men on the corners for Ryan Roberts, who grounded an RBI single to left field. Both runners moved into scoring position when Affeldt uncorked a wild pitch, but the left-hander fanned Juan Miranda to end the inning.
