AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
• Summary: Pinch-hitter Jeff Salazar hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the ninth inning to lift the Diamondbacks over the Giants 5-3.
• Giant killer: Both of Salazar's two career homers came as a pinch-hitter against the Giants. He hit the first on Sept. 18, 2006, while with the Rockies.
• Unsung hero: Emilio Bonifacio drove in two for Arizona in his first MLB start.
• Figure this: Bengie Molina hit a pair of solo home runs for the Giants. Molina has a career-high 79 RBIs -- 76 of them as a catcher, second-most in San Francisco history. Dick Dietz had 104 in 1970.
• Hunt for October: With their sixth straight win, the D-backs increased their NL West lead to 3½ over the idle Padres.
