Juan Miranda capped off a three-run eighth with an RBI single for the Diamondbacks, who have won six in a row. Chris Young also drove in a run.

Josh Collmenter gave up two runs on four hits over a six-inning start for Arizona, which went 6-1 on a seven-game road trip. Aaron Heilman (4-0) pitched one scoreless inning of relief to pick up the win.
