The left-hander also  drove in two runs with a looping sixth-inning single. Hamels, who struck out seven and scattered four hits, was still throwing 93 mph in the eighth inning.

Hunter Pence, in his second game back since injuring his shoulder, had a pair of RBI singles that scored Polanco each time. Polanco had two singles, two walks and an RBI double.

Arizona’s Trevor Cahill (1-2) allowed four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings.
