Belt homers as Giants beat Diamondbacks 4-3

Brandon Belt hit a two-run homer with two out in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Wednesday night to stop a four-game slide.

Tough blow for Taijuan Walker and the Diamondbacks as he'll undergo Tommy John surgery. The D-backs are off to a 12-4 start even though their top two starters, Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray, have ERAs over 5.00. The depth of the rotation will now be tested and you wonder if they'd consider signing knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, who is still a free agent, and was a durable back-end starter last season for the Braves (190 innings, 4.26 ERA).

D-backs' Walker to have Tommy John surgery

Arizona right-hander Taijuan Walker, who has been on the 10-day disabled list since Sunday with what the team initially described as forearm tightness, has a torn ulnar collateral ligament and will need Tommy John surgery.

Patrick Corbin finishes off his first career shutout with a 1-2-3 ninth inning, allowing just the infield single and a walk while striking out eight. It's just the ninth time the Diamondbacks won a 1-0 game at home in franchise history. Corbin is off to a great start at 3-0 with a 1.65 ERA and a 37/5 strikeout/walk ratio in 27.1 innings.

Pollock's diving grab keeps Corbin's no-hit bid alive (0:24)

Patrick Corbin loses his no-hitter with two outs in the eighth in frustrating fashion: Brandon Belt sends a check-swing dribbler to where a third baseman normally would play, but with a shift on, shortstop Nick Ahmed had to range too far to his right and Belt beat the throw to first.

Fastball, sinker, change and slider, Patrick Corbin is using all four well to hold the Giants hitless. This is the second time he's faced them in a week, but after starting the season with 29 K's in his first 18.1 IP, this time around he's working more efficiently and putting his defense to work. He's got the stuff to take it the distance, but it's on the D-backs to score off an almost equally effective Johnny Cueto.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

A.J. Pollock makes an outstanding diving catch out in center field to preserve Patrick Corbin's no-hitter through seven innings. The Diamondbacks lefty is dealing with just 73 pitches, relying on a slider that has been one of the most dominant pitches in the game this season. The only catch: Arizona hasn't scored off Johnny Cueto, so it's 0-0 tie heading into the bottom of the seventh.

Baserunning gaffe robs Marrero of 1st homer

Deven Marrero's home run Saturday night was overturned after he passed Alex Avila between first and second base during the Diamondbacks' 9-1 win over the Dodgers.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Andrew McCutchen does it again for the Giants, driving in the winning run to cap off a 5-4 victory. Jorge De La Rosa had walked the bases loaded with one out, and McCutchen knew he had to see a first-pitch strike, and hit a soft single into left-center off a first-pitch fastball. Good comeback after Arizona starter Patrick Corbin had dominated for the first five innings.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Good time for Paul Goldschmidt's first home run: His two-out blast off Hunter Strickland in the ninth ties the game. The Giants had taken a 4-3 lead in the eighth when Andrew McCutchen stole third and scored on Alex Avila's throwing error.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo and Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina both received a one-game suspension . Lovullo's suspension will be served tonight. Molina elected to file an appeal. Thus, the discipline issued will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
