Qualls Picks Up Save in D'Backs 2-0 Win Over Giants

By  | 

Chris Young hit a two-run double in the ninth and Doug Davis pitched eight shutout innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 2-0 on Saturday.

Davis scattered eight hits and struck out six while pitching out of trouble all afternoon to earn his first win since Aug. 29, 2008.

Chad Qualls worked the ninth for his second save in three opportunities.

Young struck out twice against San Francisco starter Tim Lincecum, but jumped on a fastball from closer Brian Wilson and lined it down the left-field line for a double to drive in pinch-runner Eric Byrnes and Mark Reynolds.

Lincecum also pitched eight shutout innings and matched his career high with 13 strikeouts but remains winless in three starts this season.
