PHOENIX, April 17 (UPI) -- Joe Saunders held the Pirates to one run over seven innings and Chris Young hit a two-run homer Monday in Arizona's 5-1 victory over Pittsburgh.

Saunders (1-0) yielded six hits, walking two and striking out five as the Diamondbacks won the opener of a three-game series.

Young went 3-for-4 while Gerardo Parra and Aaron Hill each added a solo homer for Arizona.

Pirates starter Erik Bedard (0-3) was saddled with the loss despite yielding only a pair of runs on three hits. He walked four batters and fanned three.

Neil Walker notched the lone RBI for Pittsburgh, which lost its sixth game in seven outings.
