ARLINGTON, Texas -- Justin Grimm joined the Texas rotation as a stopgap. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Phil-Mcconkey-Jersey/ . The rookie right-hander pitched more like an ace Thursday. Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer and Grimm took a shutout into the sixth inning to help the Rangers snap their first three-game losing streak of the season with a 9-5 interleague victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday. Grimm (5-3) allowed four hits through five innings while Texas cooled off Arizona starter Brandon McCarthy on the way to a 9-0 lead. The AL rookie leader in wins and strikeouts was replaced after Arizonas three-run sixth, and trails only ace Yu Darvish in victories on the Texas staff. The 24-year-old Grimm, who made his debut last year, came up from the minors in April when opening day starter Matt Harrison went on the disabled list with back trouble. He figured to stick around awhile with Harrison out until at least August, and was the AL rookie of the month for April. He gave up eight hits and two earned runs with three strikeouts in his third straight May win after starting the month with all three of his losses. "Hes gotten better as far as confidence-wise, believing and knowing that belongs here," catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. "It just a progression with young guys. He continues to get better. You can see it in his face. You can see it when he takes the mound in his mannerisms." McCarthy (2-4) had allowed one run in 25 innings when the Rangers scored six in a span of four outs in the second and third. The outburst started when centre fielder A.J. Pollock misplayed a line drive by Nelson Cruz into a double. Pierzynski brought Cruz home with a double and scored on a two-out single from Leonys Martin. The Rangers went up 6-0 in the third on three straight run-scoring hits -- a double from Adrian Beltre, a single by Cruz and a two-run homer from Moreland that hit near the top of the foul pole in right. McCarthy lost for the first time since April 26 in his shortest outing of the season. He gave up nine hits and six runs in just 2 2-3 innings. "I didnt have any life on my stuff," said McCarthy, whose ERA at Rangers Ballpark is 7.65 in four starts since he left Texas in 2009. "It was a fight for me. A good lineup hits those pitches. Its not an easy lineup to get out." Grimm lost his shutout when he gave up four straight hits in the sixth, starting with a double from Paul Goldschmidt, who tied a career high with four hits. An error by Martin in centre on a single by Miguel Montero led to an unearned run. "Its just all about battling and competing against these guys," Grimm said. "Be aggressive with them, but not overly aggressive obviously." The Rangers beat the Diamondbacks after they were swept in a doubleheader in Arizona on Monday and had the first of two games in Texas rained out Wednesday night. Moreland was hit by a pitch on the shoulder by reliever Josh Collmenter the next time he came up after his 11th home run and scored on a two-run single from Elvis Andrus that made it 9-0. "Honestly, I hadnt even thought about us losing three games," Moreland said. "Were going to go out and play our style of ball. We got out of it for a couple of games, but came back out today and made it work and it was a good win for us." The Diamondbacks got within 9-5 in the seventh on RBI singles from Goldschmidt and Martin Prado off Texas reliever Michael Kirkman. Neal Cotts replaced Kirkman with two outs and struck out Montero with the tying run on deck. Arizona had the tying run on deck again in the ninth when Robbie Ross got a game-ending double play from Cliff Pennington, who replaced Eric Chavez in the first inning after Chavez strained his right oblique on a swing. "The guys came back," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. Texas prospect Jurickson Profar had a career-high three hits a day after learning that his stay with the Rangers would be at least two weeks longer because second baseman Ian Kinslers rib injury has been slow to heal. Moreland and David Murphy, who hit his fifth homer, were among four Rangers with two hits. Notes: Gibson said Chavez was on his way back to Arizona for an MRI. If Chavez is headed for the disabled list, the Diamondbacks might bring up Willie Bloomquist from a weeklong rehab assignment at Triple-A Reno. ... The Texas grounds crew stayed until 2 a.m. after a high winds from a thunderstorm prevented the crew from getting the tarp down before heavy rainfall. Both baselines were swamped and had to be rebuilt. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Aldrick-Rosas-Jersey/ . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Shane-Vereen-Jersey/ .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Carl-Banks-Jersey/ . In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. SAN FRANCISCO -- Facing Tim Hudson usually means bad news for the San Francisco Giants. They turned the tables Friday night in an 8-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves, beating the veteran right-hander for the first time in seven years. The Giants drove Hudson from the game in a six-run fourth inning that represented their biggest rally of the season. That support proved plenty for Matt Cain (2-2), who went eight innings and turned in his second straight stellar outing after going winless over his first six starts. The Giants ace allowed just three hits and chipped in with an RBI single during the six-run rally. His effort was badly needed for a rotation that came in having posted just 16 quality starts in 35 games. "When you get some run support like I did tonight, against a guy thats done what hes done in his career, thats always nice," Cain said. "Its always a battle with him." The Giants hadnt beaten Hudson since April 8, 2006, a span during which he was 6-0 with a 2.48 ERA against San Francisco. Hudson (4-2) was cruising until the fourth, when the Giants batted around and scored six runs. That rally featured two hits by Marco Scutaro, including a two-run single. Buster Posey split the left-centre gap with an RBI double to kickstart things. Hunter Pence dribbled an infield single to score another and Brandon Belt chopped a run-scoring double over Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman. Brandon Crawford was intentionally walked with one out to load the bases for Cain, who stepped to the plate 0 for 11 on the season. He grounded a single through the right side to make it 4-0, and Scutaro capped the rally with a two-run single to left to drive Hudson from the game. The six runs and seven hits were the most the Giants have managed in any single inning this season. Hudson tied his season high with six runs allowed in 3 2-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. "Obviously it was a nightmare inning," Hudson said. "I made very good pitches to get the inning going and then it seemed when I needed a break here or there, their balls just found some holes. I had a hard time stoppping the bleeding. http://www.giantsrookiestore.com/Giants-Doug-Kotar-Jersey/. " The Braves did their only damage off Cain when Brian McCann crushed a two-run homer to right in the fifth. It marked the 26th time an opponent knocked one into McCovey Cove on the fly, and it was the 88th "splash hit" overall since AT&T Park opened in 2000. Cain delivered his best start of the season despite taking a liner off his hip from the bat of McCann in the second. He recovered and chased the ball down by the first-base line and got the out. "What a great job, a clutch job," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We needed a lot of length from our starter tonight and he did more than that. Eight solid innings -- especially after getting hit." McCann was the bright spot for Atlanta. After missing the first 31 games of the season while recovering from shoulder surgery, hes 5 for 16 with two homers and seven RBI in four games. "Ive felt good since spring training and I carried it into the season and on my rehab stints," McCann said. NOTES: Scutaro has a 10-game hitting streak during which hes hitting .487 (19 for 39). However, his sore back acted up during the game and Bochy wasnt sure if the second baseman would play Saturday. ... Struggling Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong will make his next start as scheduled Wednesday at Toronto, Bochy said. There was speculation that Vogelsong, 1-3 with a 7.78 ERA, might be skipped for a turn. ... Madison Bumgarner, who takes the ball Saturday against Atlanta, has received just four runs of support over his last four starts. ... Carlos Tosca served as the Braves interim manager Friday in place of Fredi Gonzalez and will do so again Saturday, with Gonzalez in Georgia to attend his daughters college graduation. ... Right fielder Jason Heyward did not play Friday for Triple-A Gwinnett, one day after beginning a rehab assignment following his emergency appendectomy April 22. GM Frank Wren said Heyward was experiencing "normal soreness" after the long layoff. ... Left-hander Paul Maholm, who starts Saturday, is 2-2 with a 3.43 ERA in nine career starts against the Giants.
