SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Zack Greinke and Madison Bumgarner both pitched well in a showdown of NL West aces, but Welington Castillo hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning to help the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Greinke (1-2) got his first win with Arizona and remained undefeated against the Giants — he’s 8-0 in 11 starts against San Francisco and 3-0 against Bumgarner. He gave up a run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings, walking one and striking out seven.

Brandon Drury added two hits for the Diamondbacks, who won their fourth straight and have taken 11 of their last 13 in San Francisco.

Bumgarner (1-2) went seven innings, giving up the two runs on five hits. He walked one and struck out eight as the Giants lost their fourth straight and seventh of eight.

Brad Ziegler earned his fourth save, extending his team record to 32 consecutive.
