Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer and a pair of sacrifice flies for a career-high five RBIs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the NL West champion San Francisco Giants 7-2 on Tuesday night.
Goldschmidt on his own gave Josh Collmenter (5-3) plenty of support as Arizona won for the seventh time in its last nine games. The D-backs are trying to keep their slim NL wild-card hopes alive.
Aaron Hill had three hits and scored three runs, and Arizona also scored two of its runs on wild pitches on a cool night featuring swirling mist above the field in the early innings.
Tim Lincecum (10-15) had his start pushed back two games from Sunday after San Francisco clinched its second division crown in three years with a win against San Diego on Saturday night.
