SAN DIEGO (AP) — For a player who was without a job in April Mitch Williams Jersey , Clay Buchholz is performing like a mainstay.Buchholz pitched a five-hitter, David Peralta hit a three-run homer and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series.A minor league free agent signing in May, Buchholz (6-2) allowed a leadoff double to Travis Jankowski but retired the next 13 batters he faced. Hunter Renfroe homered in the eighth before Buchholz retired the side in the ninth en route to his 10th career complete game and his first since 2015.“It felt good,” Buchholz said. “It has been a little bit since I threw a complete game. I didn’t have my changeup, so to do that when you only have a couple of pitches to go to was pretty special.”Buchholz struck out six and did not walk a batter in improving to 3-0 in three career starts at Petco Park. He has won five of his last six starts.“I felt like we had a little bit of a cushion and we could make that decision to stretch him out a little bit,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “I told him he was on a short leash before the ninth inning started and he said he felt really good. The shape of his pitches and the command of his pitches to the first batter told me he was OK.”Lovullo was a coach with the Red Sox when Buchholz emerged as a promising young pitcher and threw a no-hitter in his second career start.“We hoped this is what we would get from him,” Lovullo said. “From the first bullpen session, we knew there was still something special left in him.”Arizona staked Buchholz to an early lead. Peralta belted a 3-0 pitch from Jacob Nix into the center-field seats as part of a five-run first. Alex Avila added a two-run single in the inning.“I don’t think I’ve done that on a 3-0 pitch before. I just took a chance http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-dave-cash-jersey ,” Peralta said. “It went well and we got the lead early, which is good. You have to find ways to win, and Buchholz did an unbelievable job.”In his second major league start, Nix (1-1) allowed the first five Arizona batters to reach base and was removed from the game after hitting Jon Jay. Nix gave up five runs on five hits and walked five with one strikeout.“Sometimes there’s a learning process involved, especially as quickly as we’ve brought him and a couple other guys here,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “He has good stuff. He’s going to throw well.”Kazuhisa Makita replaced Nix to finish the first and pitched three more scoreless innings for his longest career outing.“I gave up a couple soft hits and walked a couple guys after I got a little frustrated, and next thing you know I was out of the game,” Nix said. “Everybody in here has had tough days Steve Carlton Jersey , and it’s part of it. It’s not my first, not my last, and I’m not the last guy it’s going to happen to.”Arizona has won its last five games at Petco Park. The complete game is Arizona’s second of the season. Patrick Corbin tossed a complete game on April 17 against San Francisco.TRAINER’S ROOMDiamondbacks: 3B Jake Lamb had successful surgery on his left shoulder on Thursday. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said the surgery went as expected and Lamb should be ready for spring training in 2019.Padres: RHP Trey Wingenter exited the game after a line drive struck him in the back.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: LHP Robbie Ray (3-2, 4.83) takes the mound for the Arizona in the second of the four-game series. Ray has allowed two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts.Padres: LHP Joey Lucchesi (6-6, 3.45) gets the call for San Diego. Lucchesi had made three starts against Arizona this season and taken the loss each time. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ivan Nova had little problem extending Pittsburgh’s streak of strong road starts.Three home runs, including a milestone shot by David Freese, gave the right-hander all the cushion he needed.Nova allowed two runs in six innings, Freese hit his 100th career home run http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-aaron-nola-jersey , and the Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants 10-5 on Thursday night.“Guys got balls over the plate and when we had them we nailed them,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said “And Nova was spot on through four. Some small misfires in the fifth and then a nice shutdown.”Nova (7-6) lost to the Giants in May but was sharper this time. He retired the first 11 batters and didn’t allow a hit until Austin Slater’s leadoff single in the fifth. Nova yielded three hits and had three strikeouts.Pirates starting pitchers have a 2.20 ERA over their last 10 road starts.“We have good starting pitching,” Nova said. “We have had some guys pitch the way that they’ve been pitching and you just want to follow that. You want to pitch a good game too.”Rich Rodriguez, Dovydas Neverauskas and Casey Sadler completed the six-hitter.Adam Frazier added three singles and two RBIs, his fourth multi-hit game in the last six.The Pirates have won three straight overall and improved to 8-2 in their last 10 at AT&T Park.Joe Panik and Steven Duggar drove in two runs apiece for San Francisco.Freese singled and scored on Diaz’s homer in the second then broke the game open with his milestone home run, a three-run blast off Mark Melancon in the seventh.“I didn’t think it would be here, that’s for sure,” Freese said. “I think I got one here before Juan Samuel Jersey , maybe just one. For a guy that pounds a ball into the ground, not too bad.”Diaz and Bell homered off starter Andrew Suarez (4-8) in the second.Former Pittsburgh star Andrew Cutchen went hitless in four at-bats but made a pair of sparkling defensive plays against his former team.A five-time All-Star and a Gold Glove winner for the Pirates as a center fielder in 2012, McCutchen threw out Frazier at second after he lined a ball into right leading off the game. In the sixth, McCutchen raced into the alley in right-center and made a diving grab to rob Diaz of extra bases.Pittsburgh scored five unearned runs in the seventh after back-to-back errors by second baseman Panik and third baseman Evan Longoria.“You give up five in the seventh, that’s a pretty good punch there,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “That’s where it got away from us.”LONG TIME COMINGSadler allowed three unearned runs in his first appearance in the majors since April 12, 2015. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015 and was recalled from the minors on Sunday.“This has got to be a very special evening for him, the fight Larry Andersen Jersey , the perseverance and the resiliency to stay in the hunt and get back back and contribute in a major league game,” Hurdle said. “His stuff was clean.”BONDS RETIREMENTThe Giants will retire the jersey of home run king Barry Bonds during a pregame ceremony Saturday. Bonds will be only the 10th player in franchise history to have his number retired.ANOTHER BARRY’S BACKFormer San Francisco pitcher Barry Zito threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game. Zito won 63 games for the Giants from 2007-13.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (shoulder inflammation) threw 40 pitches in a bullpen session and will face hitters next week. … 1B Brandon Belt (hyperextended right knee) ran the bases and took batting practice. … Catcher Nick Hundley is being evaluated for a concussion.UP NEXTGiants LHP Derek Holland (5-8, 3.88 ERA) makes his second start against Pittsburgh this season on Friday night.
