Aaron Hill hit a two-run single in the 12th inning and Miguel Montero homered, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
Chris Perez (0-1), beginning his second inning of relief, gave up a leadoff double to A.J. Pollock and plunked pinch-hitter Cliff Pennington on the left foot with a pitch as he squared to bunt. Gerardo Parra advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt, and Hill lined an 0-1 pitch to right-center to break the tie.
Joe Thatcher (0-1) pitched 1 1-3 innings for the victory and six-year veteran Trevor Cahill got three outs for his first major league save. Cahill was 0-4 with a 9.17 ERA in four starts before he was demoted to the bullpen.
