PHOENIX (AP) – Arizona shortstop Chad Pennington’s throwing error allowed the go-ahead run to score in the 12th inning and San Francisco beat the Diamondbacks 6-5 on Friday night, the Giants’ fourth straight victory.
With the bases loaded and one out, Pennington – who entered the game in the 11th inning – fielded Angel Pagan’s bouncer and threw home to try and get the forceout. But the throw bounced in front of the plate and got past catcher Welington Castillo.
Hunter Pence of the Giants had tied the game with a two-run homer in the three-run seventh and added a double and single. Joe Panik and Matt Duffy also had three hits apiece for the Giants.
Ryan Vogelson (7-6), the last of 10 pitchers used by the Giants, threw two scoreless innings to get the victory.
