PHOENIX, AZ - Hunter Pence clubbed his third career grand slam as the San Francisco Giants downed the Arizona Diamondbacks, 6-2, on Friday.

Buster Posey scored twice and knocked in a run and Santiago Cassila picked up his first career base hit and RBI for the Giants, who have won eight of their last 12.

Matt Cain (14-5) allowed one run on four hits over five-plus innings to pick up the win despite walking a season-high five batters.

Chris Johnson went 2-for-3 and drove in both runs for the Diamondbacks, who had won five of seven overall entering the game.

Tyler Skaggs (1-2) was pegged with the loss after giving up five runs on five hits over four innings.
