Recap


Diamondbacks 8, Athletics 3: Miguel Montero belted his second career grand slam and Trevor Cahill handcuffed his former team over 7 1/3 innings as host Arizona posted its fourth straight win and sixth in seven games.

After Justin Upton snapped a tie with an RBI double in the fifth inning, the Diamondbacks loaded the bases with two outs in the frame. Montero launched a fastball from former Diamondbacks hurler Jarrod Parker (2-3) into the second deck in center field to give Arizona a 6-1 advantage.

Jason Kubel collected three hits - including a pair of RBI singles - and Paul Goldschmidt extended his hitting streak to 16 games with a run-scoring single in the eighth inning.

The offense was more than enough for Cahill (4-5), who won his second straight start after going winless for more than a month. He allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out seven.

Kurt Suzuki and Jemile Weeks had RBI doubles for the Athletics, who have dropped two straight and fell to 4-5 in June.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cahill joined reliever Craig Breslow in being traded to Arizona in December for Parker, outfielder Collin Cowgill and reliever Ryan Cook. ... Oakland rookie outfielder Yoenis Cespedes sat out his second straight game with a hamstring strain. He is listed as day-to-day.
