McCarthy (4-9) gave up one run and six hits while striking out six. Brad Ziegler pitched a scoreless ninth for his ninth save in 11 chances.

Goldschmidt broke a 1-1 tie with a triple to right center in the fifth inning that scored Adam Eaton, who walked.

Matt Cain (8-9) allowed eight hits and two runs in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out three and walked four.
