SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- A two-run double by Paul Goldschmidt was the highlight of a four-run fifth inning Thursday that pushed Arizona to a 4-2 decision over San Francisco.

The Diamondbacks stayed within seven games of the second National League wild card berth thanks to one big inning and four shutout frames from their bullpen.

Arizona trailed by two heading into the fifth and the first two batters in the inning were retired by San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong (3-6).

Adam Eaton then started the two-out rally with a double, Willie Bloomquist drew a walk and both runners scored on Goldschmidt's double.

Martin Prado doubled Goldschmidt home with the go-ahead run and Prado came in on a single from Aaron Hill.

The win went to Trevor Cahill (6-10), who allowed two runs on six hits in five innings. Brad Ziegler wrapped up the effort from the relief corps with a 1-2-3 ninth that brought him his eighth save.
