Associated Press - Coming off a three-game sweep at San Diego, the San Francisco Giants were looking for a way to finish off their road trip with something positive. A third straight comeback victory against Arizona should do it.
Brandon Belt hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied against Arizona's bullpen for the third straight game, beating the Diamondbacks 9-6 Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep.
Belt finished off the series of comebacks with his homer off David Hernandez (1-2), giving San Francisco its first road sweep over the Diamondbacks since July 22-25, 2010.
Angel Pagan led off the game with a homer, Hunter Pence added a 460-foot solo shot and George Kontos (2-1) pitched 1 2/3 innings after starter Tim Lincecum struggled.
Sergio Romo extended his scoreless streak against Arizona to 27 innings in the ninth for his 11th save, finishing off San Francisco's ninth come-from-behind victory of the season.
Just like it did the series' first two games, Arizona got off to a solid start. Chad Pennington hit a three-run homer off Lincecum in the second inning and added a run-scoring double, matching his career-high with four RBIs. The Diamondbacks had 15 hits after getting 11 the previous two games combined.
Brandon McCarthy put Arizona in position to win with six decent innings. But Hernandez couldn't hold a 6-4 lead. He walked Pence and Gregor Blanco in the eighth, then served up an 0-2 pitch that Belt hit out to right, setting off a round of boos from the home fans before the ball even landed. It was Arizona's majors-leading 10th blown save of the season.
