San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Trevor Cahill took a no-hitter into the seventh inning on Wednesday and the Arizona Diamondbacks topped the San Francisco Giants, 6-2, in the finale of a three-game series at AT&T Park.
Cahill (10-11) was charged with two runs on two hits and a pair of walks with five strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings to earn his first win since July 30.
"Your adrenaline starts getting up and I was trying to maybe do too much at the end and just kind of got a little bit tired," Cahill said, referring to his early success.
Chris Johnson clubbed a two-run double, while Aaron Hill, Paul Goldschmidt, Miguel Montero and John McDonald all knocked in a run for the Diamondbacks, who have won back-to-back games on the heels of a three-game slide.
Brandon Belt smoked a two-run single for the Giants, who have lost two straight after winning three in a row. Madison Bumgarner (14-10) was saddled with his third straight loss after allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.
The Diamondbacks jumped out front with a run in their first at-bat when Adam Eaton singled to begin the game and came around to cross the plate later in the inning via a base hit by Montero.
Johnson smoked a triple into the right-center field gap with one out in the fourth and scored on a single by McDonald to stretch the lead to 2-0.
The D-backs broke the game open with four runs in the seventh. Eaton started the rally with a one-out infield single and scored when Hill ripped a double into the left-center field gap. Goldschmidt drove home Hill two batters later with a base hit and Johnson capped the inning with a two-run double down the right field line, making it a 6-0 game.
San Francisco finally got on the board with a pair of runs in the home seventh. Scutaro ended Cahill's no-hit bid with a single into right leading off the inning. Buster Posey beat out an infield hit and Hunter Pence walked to load the bases.
Cahill was removed for Mike Zagurski, who allowed a two-run single to Belt, pulling the Giants within 6-2.
"The game wasn't very pretty for us tonight," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Their guy pitched pretty well. The two-out hits killed us."
