SAN FRANCISCO -- Tony Campana and Cliff Pennington made the most of their rare starts for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Campana drove Pennington in with the go-ahead run on an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning to lead the Diamondbacks to their first back-to-back wins of the season with a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night. "Its just us being ready," Campana said. "We both kind of kept our routine the same. You kind of come in every day ready to play. Today we got the start and both did a pretty good job at the plate and got the win." Campana had a career-high four hits and Pennington added three, including a two-run single as both players made just their second starts of the young season. "Theyre not rookies, and they prepare themselves properly," manager Kirk Gibson said. "They were ready to play tonight." Miguel Montero also drove in two runs for the Diamondbacks, who won the final two games of the series. Michael Morse hit a two-run double that gave the Giants the lead, but an error by third baseman Pablo Sandoval allowed the tying run to score in the eighth and San Francisco fell in extra innings to lose their first home series since last August against Boston. Pennington hit a one-out single off Yusmeiro Petit (0-1) in the 10th and then stole second base on a 2-2 pitch to Campana with two outs. Campana then blooped a single just over the outstretched glove of second baseman Brandon Hicks to score the go-ahead run. "It took some pressure off once he got to second," Campana said. "I knew I just had to get it through the infield somehow. Got jammed and got over his head barely." J.J. Putz (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win and Addison Reed got three outs for his third save in as many chances. The Diamondbacks failed to score in the seventh after loading the bases with no outs, but got the tying run an inning later on Sandovals bad throw. With runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth, Campana hit a slow grounder to Sandoval, who rushed his throw to first. The ball sailed over Brandon Belts head allowing Gerardo Parra to score the tying run from second. "You have to keep your poise," manager Bruce Bochy said. "He got in a rush mode there. With the game on the line, you have to be a bit more cautious. You have to know the situation." Sandoval had a chance to make up for that mistake in the bottom half but couldnt deliver. The Giants loaded the bases with one out with help from a fly to centre that Campana misjudged to give Brandon Crawford a leadoff double. Belt hit a fly ball to left field that was not deep enough to let Crawford tag from third. Sandoval then flied out to deep right to end the inning. The Diamondbacks jumped on top early against Ryan Vogelsong with a two-run single by Pennington in the second inning and a two-run double by Montero in the third to take a 4-1 lead. The Giants hitters chipped away after the early deficit, getting a run in the third on the first bunt single of Buster Poseys career when he surprised Arizona with a two-out bunt with Angel Pagan on third. Back-to-back doubles by Morse and Crawford to open the fourth made it 4-3 and Morses double off Will Harris in the fifth gave the Giants the lead.

But John Hufnagel lost a friend.John Forzani, who spent six seasons with the CFL club and later built a chain of successful sporting goods stores, died Friday. He was 67.The Stampeders confirmed Forzanis passing in a statement Friday morning. The Calgary native had been on life support in a California hospital after suffering a heart attack.John was a teammate, a friend, one of the funniest guys I ever knew, said Hufnagel, the Stampeders head coach and general manager. John was instrumental, along with Ted Hellard, Doug Mitchell and Bob Vickers, in my hiring in 2008, which Im very appreciative of.Even though John is not with us, his legacy and his mark that he made in the sports world and in the business world in the community of Calgary will survive.The Stampeders have become a model franchise under Hufnagel, finishing atop the West Division four times since his return. Calgary has reached the Grey Cup twice in that time, winning in 08.Hufnagel has amassed a superb 87-36-1 record as Calgarys head coach heading into Saturdays home game against Winnipeg. The Stampeders have the CFLs best record this season at 14-2.He was pivotal in getting coach Hufnagel up here and for that reason alone, hes directly contributed to our success on the field, Stampeders running back Jon Cornish — the CFLs outstanding player last year — said of Forzani. Hes definitely a guy who took some of his football habit and kept on living with them throughout his life.Hes always worked hard and played hard.After attending Utah State, Forzani won a Grey Cup in 1971 in his first season with Calgary. He played alongside his brothers Tom and Joe.Forzanis nephew, Johnny, was also with the club from 2010 to 12.Johns passion for community and football were singularly essential in the revival of the Stamps important role in the community, Stampeders chairman Ken King said in a statement. It is one, among many, of his great legacies. I will miss him dearly.Commissioner Mark Cohon said the CFL family was saddened by the news of Forzanis passing.As a league, we are immensely proud to say he was one of ours, he said in a statement. As individuals, we are so grateful to have known him. On the field, John was a Grey Cup champion. In business, he epitomized the entrepreneurial spirit. In the community, he supported causes he believed in. And as a member of our board of governors, and an ownerr of the Calgary Stampeders, he did much to move the CFL forward.dddddddddddd.Gregarious and outgoing, John was a joy to be around. He not only demonstrated to us all how to reach lofty goals; he showed us how to enjoy the journey as well. Our thoughts are with his family. Like all of his other friends across the country, we will miss him, and remember him.After retiring from football, Forzani built his sporting goods business, which had over 500 outlets. That company, Forzani Group Ltd, was sold in 2011 to Canadian Tire, which renamed it FGL Sports.Forzani also established Calgarys annual Mothers Day Run and Walk in 1977, a fundraising event which continues to this day. In 2000, the Forzani Foundation was established to assist charities including Canadian amateur athletics.Forzani was also part of a local group that purchased the Stampeders in 05. The Calgary Flames became majority owners of the football franchise in 12 but Forzani retained a minority stake and was the teams co-chair in 2013.Upon the arrival of the ownership group that included Forzani, the Stampeders went from a 4-14 team in 2004 to 11-7 the following season. The club has posted a winning record in nine of 10 seasons since.I called him uncle John, veteran Stampeders receiver Nik Lewis said. He was part of the group that came in here and turned things around.Being here in 04 and seeing how bad we were as a team and the ownership group was always up in the air and you didnt know what was going on, to move into 2005 when Ted Hellard and John Forzani and the rest of the owners came in, you could just see the difference. Theres not a lot of loyalty in professional football, but when youve got a guy like John, you really look at him and hes going to tell you what it is and how it is and you can respect it and you just love him for it.Club president Gordon Norrie said Forzani will forever be a key figure in the CFL franchises history.He was certainly instrumental in turning this football club around to the point you see how successful it is today, Norrie said. He was a great contributor to the community of Calgary too with the Forzani foundation, a significant businessman behind the Forzani group. Its going to be a tough day for all of us.He was the funniest man I met in my life and he had time for everybody all the time. A very uplifting individual.Forzani is survived by his wife Linda and grown children Mike and Jodi. Funeral arrangements were not immediately known. ' ' '
