Collmenter shuts down Giants, gets 3 hits in D-backs win

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Josh Collmenter pitched a four-hitter and had a career-high three hits, and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the World Series champion San Francisco Giants to an eighth straight loss with a 9-0 win Friday night.

Jake Lamb hit a two-run triple in the third and Collmenter (1-2) added an RBI single as Arizona knocked Jake Peavy out of the game after only 3 2-3 innings. Paul Goldschmidt singled in a run for the Diamondbacks.

A.J. Pollock matched his career high with four hits for Arizona, including an RBI double. David Peralta doubled in a run and Tuffy Gosewisch added an RBI single on a chilly Bay Area night.

The Giants’ eight-game skid is their longest since June 13-22, 2007, in home run king Barry Bonds’ final season.
