Diamondbacks hope to extend Giants' home skid

Jun 13, 2015 - 2:18 PM ( - The Arizona Diamondbacks aim to secure a series victory and extend the San Francisco Giants' recent home struggles on Saturday evening in the second contest of a three-game series between NL West rivals.

The Diamondbacks got an excellent outing in last night's opener from Chase Anderson, who took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of a 1-0 win.

Anderson hit Matt Duffy twice in the game, walked a batter and struck out two. He didn't allow a hit until Buster Posey's liner hit off his right calf and towards the third base line, allowing the Giants catcher to easily reach first.

Anderson was checked out by the medical staff, but remained in the game and retired the next two batters before giving way to Daniel Hudson for the eighth.

"He was changing speeds, moving it around," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said of Anderson. "His changeup was very good today."

Ender Inciarte drove in the only run of the game with a single in the second inning as Arizona snapped a four-game slide. Welington Castillo went 3-for-4 and scored the run.

Madison Bumgarner gave up nine hits, walked three and struck out seven over eight innings of one-run ball for the Giants, who have lost six in a row at home for the first time since May 14-31, 2008 when they dropped seven straight as the host.

"(Anderson) was mixing his speeds, throwing everything in the count and he was able to control it," said Giants second baseman Joe Panik, who had his 15-game hitting streak snapped.

Allen Webster is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Reno and join Arizona's rotation tonight. It will mark his debut with the D-backs and the 20th appearance of his career. He appeared in 19 games with 18 starts over the previous two years with Boston.

Webster will take the rotation spot of Opening Day starter Josh Collmenter, who hasn't won since May 6 and gave up four homers in his last start. Collmenter will now work out of the bullpen.

The 25-year-old Webster was acquired from the Red Sox this past offseason in the trade that sent Wade Miley to Boston. The righty recently missed time in the minors with shoulder fatigue and has gone 1-2 with a 9.00 earned run average in five starts this season with Reno.

"He's got good stuff," Hale told his club's website. "He's had mixed results in Reno, but they like the way he's throwing the ball right now, and we're going to give these guys a shot. Now it's time to see what we have."

Ryan Vogelsong tries to avoid a third loss in a row when he takes the mound for the Giants.

The 37-year-old Vogelsong had a four-decision win streak halted with a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh on June 1, touched for four runs -- three earned -- over six innings. He then yielded five runs on seven hits and two walks over 6 2/3 frames on Sunday in a 6-4 setback in Philadelphia.

The right-hander is now 4-4 with a 4.52 ERA on the year and 3-7 with a 4.85 ERA in 23 games (16 starts) versus the Diamondbacks. He has allowed eight earned runs over 6 2/3 innings in a pair of meetings this season.

The Diamondbacks are 5-3 versus the Giants this season, winning three of four in San Francisco from April 16-19.
