SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer and sacrifice fly to pound Tim Lincecum again, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3 on Wednesday night.
Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer and Eric Chavez added an RBI triple for his first hit in his first start of the year for Arizona.
Goldschmidt is batting .542 (13-for-24) with seven homers and 17 RBIs all-time against Lincecum, including a two-run homer last week at Chase Field.
Goldschmidt has been such a nemesis for Lincecum, the exasperated two-time NL Cy Young Award winner said last week he might have to throw underhanded to try to stymie the slugger.
Michael Morse and Buster Posey hit solo homers against Bronson Arroyo (1-0), who won his third straight decision against San Francisco.
