Arizona Diamondbacks

Petit nearly perfect as Giants beat D-Backs 3-0

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Yusmeiro Petit's bid for a perfect game was broken up by Eric Chavez's two-out single in the ninth inning, but the right-hander got the next batter to close out the San Francisco Giants' 3-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.

Petit struck out Chris Owings to begin the ninth, and Gerardo Parra followed with a routine grounder to second. He then went to a full-count on Chavez, who dumped a pinch-hit single just in front of Hunter Pence in right field.

The crowd of 41,190 fans followed with a standing ovation for Petit, who struck out seven in his 95-pitch gem against his former team.
