Arizona started the game off when Richie Sexson doubled and came around to score on Shea Hillenbrand's sacrifice fly.
Sexson hit a two-run jack off Noah Lowry in the sixth inning to give the Dbacks a 3-1 lead.
However, the Giants' real awakening came in their half of the sixth inning, when A.J. Pierzynski singled and Todd Linden and Daniel Ortmeier both drew walks. With the bases loaded, Dustan Mohr smashed a triple to right-center field off Andrew Good that emptied the bases, and to put the Giants ahead for the time being.
With the Giants down by one in the eighth, Francisco Santos blasted a solo hot potato to tie the game.
The real blow came in the tenth inning, when Matt Kata hit a three-run roundtripper. An infield error and RBI hits by Josh Kroeger and Chris Snyder gave Lee Gardner his first loss as the Giants were unable to answer in their half of the tenth.
