July 20, 2013 at 1:10 AM

SAN FRANCISCO, July 20 (UPI) -- Chad Gaudin and a parade of five relief pitchers held Arizona to five hits Friday and brought San Francisco a 2-0 win over the Diamondbacks.

The Giants scored twice in the first inning and then turned things over to Gaudin (4-1), who gave up three hits, walked no one and struck out eight in seven innings.

San Francisco sent four pitchers to the mound in the eighth to work out of a bases-loaded jam and Sergio Romo struck out one while retiring the side in order in the ninth for his 22nd save.

Gregor Blanco walked to open the San Francisco first and scored on a double by Buster Posey. A single by Hunter Pence delivered Posey.

Those runs were charged to Ian Kennedy (3-7), who gave up five hits in seven innings.
