PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks looked headed for a seventh straight loss and more disappointment at home. Then Welington Castillo brought smiles and relief.The catchers three-run homer in the eighth inning rallied Arizona to a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night.Castillo ripped reliever Hunter Stricklands 2-1 pitch into the stands in left field with one out. The Giants led 5-3 going into the inning, but starter Jeff Samardzija and reliever Josh Osich each put runners on base.I just was waiting for something over the plate and close to me that I can put a good swing on it, Castillo said. It means a lot, especially here at home.Strickland (3-1) replaced Osich and gave up the games biggest hit.I tried to throw a two-seamer, left it over the plate and it didnt move. I would say he got the best of it, Strickland said. I was trying to throw it in. I was trying to get a ground ball.Jake Barrett (1-0) earned his first major league win in relief and Brad Ziegler got his 17th save of the season.Brandon Crawford and Mac Williamson hit back-to-back home runs to give the Giants a 5-1 lead in the fourth. Williamsons blast flew well over the 413-feet sign in left-center field and off the bottom left corner of the Chase Field video board.The Diamondbacks avoided their longest losing streak of the season.Its huge. It flips the whole thing around, manager Chip Hale said. We got the one pitch from Strickland and did some damage to it.Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt made a diving stop and putout to end the game with a runner on first for the Giants.That is one we let get away, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.The Giants scored their first three runs in the second inning. Buster Posey walked, took third on a single and scored on a fielders choice when Diamondbacks shortstop Jean Segura threw wide to home plate for an error after fielding Williamsons grounder.Recent callup Ruben Tejadas first hit and RBI as a Giant came one out later, on a single to drive in Crawford. Then Samardzija grounded to Segura, who bobbled the ball and could only get one out to allow Williamson to score.Patrick Corbin doubled and scored in the fourth thanks to teammate Michael Bourns hustle. Bourn beat out what looked to be an inning-ending double-play grounder at first base, allowing Corbin to score from third.Castillo and Chris Herrmann doubled in runs in the fifth -- Herrmanns drive close to being a home run to right-center field -- to cut the Giants lead to two.Hale was ejected before the top of the seventh inning, arguing with home plate umpire Brian Knight soon after Herrmann was called out on strikes. It was Hales second ejection of the season.ITS A BOYDiamondbacks infielder Nick Ahmed is on paternity leave after the birth of his first child, a son. Ahmed left Fridays game before it ended to be with his wife Amanda, and could return to the team by Monday.The Diamondbacks made a roster move to replace Ahmed before Saturdays game, recalling reliever Enrique Burgos from Triple-A Reno.RETURN IMMINENTDiamondbacks outfielder Rickie Weeks Jr. is expected to return from bereavement leave on Sunday, at which time the team will make another roster move to add him, Hale said.
