Diamondbacks 3, Giants 1

In his second Major League start in two years, Brad Hennessey subdued the D-backs for most of his eight innings, but before the final out of his night, he gave up a go-ahead homer. The Giants gave the right-hander little support in his complete game, plating just an unearned run.
