PHOENIX — — Josh Rojas homered and the Arizona Diamondbacks scored two runs on Jose Herrera’s squeeze bunt in the seventh inning to extend the San Francisco Giants’ losing streak to seven games with a 5-3 win on Wednesday.
Jake McCarthy opened the seventh inning with a bunt single overturned by video review — he was initially called out — and Sergia Alcántara hit a single off Logan Webb (9-4) after initially squaring around to bunt. He went to second when Giants center fielder Austin Slater tried to throw out McCarthy at third.
McCarthy scored on Herrara’s bunt and Alcántara came around when Giants first baseman Brandon Belt’s throw sailed to the backstop. Rojas made it 5-2 with a solo homer to the pool deck in right-center.
Noé Ramirez (3-3) allowed a run on one hit in 1 1/3 innings and Mark Melancon worked around two runners for his 14th save in 16 chances. Ketel Marte also homered in Arizona’s first three-game home sweep of San Francisco since 2017.
San Francisco squandered a solid start by Webb with its miscues in the seventh inning to finish off its first 0-7 road trip since 1985. The Dodgers had a four-game sweep of the Giants in Los Angeles for the first time since 1995 over the weekend.
Webb allowed four runs on four hits in 6 1/3 innings.
