Arizona Diamondbacks recover to beat San Francisco Giants 6-4 in 11

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Didi Gregorius scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the 11th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 6-4 Tuesday night after blowing a late four-run lead.

Gregorius hustled for a one-out double off reliever Santiago Casilla (2-2) when left fielder Andres Torres fielded the ball nonchalantly. Pinch-hitter Alfredo Marte reached when first baseman Brandon Belt was charged with an error for bobbling a throw from third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Casilla then threw a pitch to Gerardo Parra that bounced to the backstop, allowing Gregorius to score.

Parra followed with an RBI double to make it 6-4.

San Francisco got the potential tying run to the plate in the bottom of the 11th, but Matt Reynolds got Torres to ground into a double play and then retired Brandon Crawford for his first career save.
