CHICAGO -- Chase Anderson won his major league debut, Gerardo Parra and Miguel Montero homered, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Chicago White Sox 5-1 on Sunday.

Recalled Tuesday from Double-A Mobile, Anderson (1-0) hadn't seen any action until Sunday and he made his first big league appearance count, at one point retiring 12 consecutive batters. He allowed one run and only two hits in 5 1-3 innings while striking out six, helping Arizona win for the fourth time in five games and secure its third consecutive series for the first time since June 2012.

Anderson, 26, was Arizona's ninth-round selection in the 2009 draft and made it to Triple-A last season before going back to Double-A this year, where he was 4-2 with an 0.69 ERA.

Brad Ziegler threw a perfect eighth to extend his scoreless-outings streak to 18 over 17 1-3 innings.
