June 9, 2013 at 7:42 PM

PHOENIX, June 9 (UPI) -- San Francisco's Chad Gaudin made it through six innings Sunday for his second win in two starts, a 6-2 Giants victory over Arizona.

After Gaudin (2-1) notched a win over St. Louis last week in his first start in three years, the converted reliever again pitched well for the Giants, holding the Diamondbacks to two runs on five hits.

The right-hander walked one and struck out seven as San Francisco took two out of three in the match-up between National League West contenders.

Marco Scutaro went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and Brandon Belt also supplied a bases-empty blast for the Giants.

Andres Torres, Buster Posey, Joaquin Arias and Juan Perez each added an RBI for San Francisco, which pulled 1 1/2 games behind Arizona in the NL West.

Diamondbacks starter Tyler Skaggs (1-1) was roughed up for five runs on eight hits in five innings.

A.J. Pollock delivered Arizona's only RBI.
