Dbacks D-backs roar back to sweep Giants

Quote:
To most, Sunday's game between the D-backs and Giants was an ugly one, featuring eight errors.

To the D-backs, though, it was a thing of beauty as they overcame an early six-run deficit to beat the Giants, 7-6, at Chase Field.

The win gave Arizona a sweep in its opening series with its division rival and extended the D-backs' win streak over the Giants to eight games.

"Any time you sweep a team it's special and awesome, but especially against the Giants to continue on the win streak that we finished on last year," said reliever Bryan Shaw, who closed things out in the ninth to record his first professional save.

The win was reminiscent of 2011 when the D-backs led the Majors in come-from-behind wins with 48. Twice last year they overcame six-run deficits, but neither of those comebacks seemed as unlikely as Sunday's.

The D-backs sleepwalked through the first three innings with starter Josh Collmenter getting roughed up and Gold Glove left fielder Gerardo Parra committing an error, one of five on the day for the home team.
