PHOENIX — Seth Beer launched a game-winning, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres.

Beer’s blast to deep right field off Craig Stammen spoiled a stellar outing by San Diego starter Yu Darvish, who fired six no-hit innings before being pulled with a 2-0 lead after throwing 92 pitches.

The Padres lost because of a ninth-inning bullpen meltdown.

Robert Suarez and Craig Stammen were unable to get an out in the ninth.
