MLB: Arizona 4, San Francisco 3

Sept. 1, 2013 at 1:45 AM

PHOENIX, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Eric Chavez sent home the winning run with a ninth-inning RBI Saturday, enabling Arizona to edge San Francisco 4-3.

The Diamondbacks led 3-0 during the middle innings but the Giants forged a tie with three runs in the seventh before Arizona finally struck for the game-winner.

Willie Bloomquist (3-for-5, RBI) led off the ninth with a single against Sandy Rosario (3-2) and went to second on Adam Eaton's sacrifice.

After Paul Goldschmidt was intentionally walked, Chavez cracked the first pitch he saw into the left-center field gap to end the game.

Brad Ziegler (8-1) pitched a 1-2-3 top of the ninth for the D-backs, who bounced back from a 1-0 loss in Friday's three-game series opener.

Gregor Blanco belted a homer and Hunter Pence had three for San Francisco.
