Following a three-week stretch that saw San Francisco Giants ace Logan Webb fail to pick up a win, the right-hander delivered a much-needed gem on Wednesday night.

The Rocklin native tossed seven innings of two-run ball while striking out five Arizona Diamondbacks hitters during a 4-2 win at Oracle Park, one that pushed the Giants (60-49) three games ahead of the D-Backs in the National League West standings.

Following a rough stretch of play that saw San Francisco lose six-straight games, the Giants have won six of eight to put themselves back in the rear-view of the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers (lead NL West by 2.5 games).

The start of Wednesday’s game wasn’t ideal for Webb, who surrendered two runs during the first inning as Arizona quickly established themselves in the batter’s box.

Two runs would be all that the D-Backs would push across in this one, as Webb was lights out the rest of the way. Over his next six innings, the 26-year-old allowed just one hit while striking out four as the Giants’ offense pushed across four runs.

Brandon Crawford drilled an RBI triple during the bottom of the fifth inning–his first triple of the season–and Isan Díaz drove Crawford in one batter later to tie things up at 2-2.

One inning later, Elk Grove’s J.D. Davis gave San Francisco the lead for good on a two-run double down the left-field line to put the Giants ahead 4-2.

From that point on, Webb, Tyler Rogers, and Camilo Doval shut things down to give the Giants a second-straight win.

Doval picked up his league-leading 32nd save of the season during the win while lowering his ERA to 2.52 (over 50 appearances).

With a win over Arizona on Thursday, San Francisco can put four games between themselves and their National League West foe.

First pitch will take place at 12:45 PM PST as Giants’ left-hander Scott Alexander will toe the rubber against D-Backs’ righty Brandon Pfaadt.
