PHOENIX (AP) - Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam and had five RBIs, Wade Miley pitched seven effective innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the San Francisco Giants to their third straight loss, 6-2 last night. Wade Miley (8-11) bounced back from his shortest outing of the season by holding the Giants to a run and seven hits. Joaquin Arias had three hits and Buster Posey a run-scoring single for the Giants, who dropped four games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have recalled infielder Nick Ahmed and left-handed pitcher Andrew Chafin from Triple-A Reno, and selected the contract of catcher Bobby Wilson. To make room on the 40-man roster for Wilson, Arizona transferred right-handed pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who had Tommy John surgery, to the 60-day disabled list.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The 'Comeback Cardinals' find themselves alone in first place in the NFC West heading into an important game at home against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Whether Arizona will have quarterback Carson Palmer back for that game remains a big question. Palmer is nursing a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona coach Bruce Arians says outside linebacker John Abraham will return to the Cardinals today. Abraham left the team last Tuesday after sustaining a concussion in the Cardinals' season-opening victory over San Diego. Abraham had until today to return or the Cardinals would have had to declare him out for the season.
