SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Aaron Hill had a career-high five hits and Jason Kubel tripled home the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks over the San Francisco Giants 8-6 on Tuesday night.

The first-place Giants used 11 pitchers, matching a major league record for extra-inning games. They remained 4½ games ahead of Los Angeles in the NL West because the Dodgers also lost at home in extra innings, to San Diego.

Hill drove in two runs and was a triple shy of his third cycle this season. John McDonald also had two RBIs for the Diamondbacks, who ended a three-game skid.

Brandon Belt had three hits, including a two-run homer, for San Francisco. Pablo Sandoval knocked in two runs but the Giants had their three-game winning streak stopped.
