Diamondbacks top Giants on walk-off walk

PHOENIX (AP) – David Peralta capped a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning by drawing a one-out, bases-loaded walk, giving the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-3 win over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

Daniel Descalso jogged home with the winning run in the Diamondbacks’ regular-season home finale. Arizona will be back in action at Chase Field next Wednesday in the NL wild card game.

All of the runs were charged to Giants closer Sam Dyson (3-3). J.J. Hoover (3-1) earned the win in relief.

Pablo Sandoval doubled twice and drove in two runs, and Jeff Samardzija threw three-hit ball for six innings for the Giants.

J.D. Martinez led off the ninth with a solo homer, his 16th this month and 45th this season, 29 of them with the Diamondbacks. His 36 RBIs this month set an Arizona record, surpassing Luis Gonzalez’s 35 in June 2001.
