Peralta punishes Pirates

Posted: Updated:
David Peralta had three hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in four runs as the Arizona Diamondbacks avoided a series sweep with a 10-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night.
    
Arizona scored three runs in the sixth and seven in the ninth.
    
The Pirates are 0 for 8 in chances to sweep opposing teams this season. They looked primed to get their first sweep as starter Vance Worley retired the first 12 batters he faced and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning.
    
Ender Inciarte broke up Worley's no-hit bid with an RBI single with one out in the sixth. Peralta followed with his third home run of the year which barely cleared the 21-foot-high fence in right field and gave Arizona a 3-2 lead.
