SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Brandon Belt hit a game-ending single to left-center with one out in the ninth after Buster Posey tied it with a two-run homer in the eighth as the Giants rallied to beat the Diamondbacks 5-4 on Monday night for their seventh straight home victory. Posey's drive to straightaway center was his second homer of the year and in two days. Belt's first career walkoff hit came against Tony Sipp (1-1), who had allowed a leadoff single to Andres Torres. Brandon Crawford sacrificed him to second. Jose Mijares struck out two in the ninth before yielding Cliff Pennington's double. Closer Sergio Romo (1-1) relieved in a double switch as Belt entered at first base. Romo then retired pinch-hitter Eric Hinske on a first-pitch grounder. Belt delivered hours after manager Bruce Bochy and hitting coaches Hensley Meulens and Joe Lefebvre met with him during batting practice and urged the struggling first baseman to slow his body movements down. Joaquin Arias started in his place. The D-backs played their third straight one-run game. Cody Ross hit a two-run single against the team he helped win the 2010 World Series and pitcher Wade Miley hit a towering, tiebreaking drive to right for his first career home run to make it 3-2. Eric Chavez also hit a solo homer for the D-backs, but they couldn't hold the 4-2 lead. Miley crushed a 2-0 pitch deep into the right field arcade in the fifth off Ryan Vogelsgong -- and the ball was thrown back onto the field, so the pitcher might have a souvenir to take home. Ross threw his right arm into the air to cheer his teammate. In the sixth, Ross drew cheers with a sensational diving catch near the foul line in right field to rob Posey of a likely extra-base hit. Ross then got to his knees and quickly threw to the infield as shortstop Didi Gregorius clapped. The Giants have given up home runs to three different opposing pitcher this month, the first time they've done so in the same calendar month since June 1953. Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and the Brewers' Yovani Gallardo also connected against the Giants. Vogelsong was tagged for two homers in a game for the first time since allowing three to the Braves on Aug. 24 last year, the only time he did so in 2012. He loaded the bases on just 12 pitches to start the game. Back-to-back singles by Gerardo Parra and Martin Prado were followed by a seven-pitch walk to Paul Goldschmidt before Ross' bloop single, which went just past leaping second baseman Marco Scutaro. That hit by Ross, the 2010 NLCS MVP for the Giants, ended a stretch of 21 shutout innings by Giants pitchers after consecutive shutouts in a weekend sweep of the Padres. It was the longest scoreless streak by the club since 36 innings from June 25-29 of last year. The Giants added those two runs right back in the bottom half with three straight one-out doubles, including one by Pablo Sandoval and one by Posey to drive in runs after Scutaro got things started. Goldschmidt walked in his first two plate appearances, then was hit by a pitch in the fifth. Miley remains winless in three career starts and four total outings against the Giants. At the plate, Miley was 0 for 5 this season and 12 for 83 lifetime (.145) with a pair of doubles before the homer. NOTES: Ross hadn't been back to AT&T Park since signing with the Red Sox before the 2012 season. Even while playing for the division rival Diamondbacks, the bearded, smiling Ross is still a beloved figure in San Francisco. "This place will always have a special place in my heart," Ross said. "I've already gotten a lot of people, just out on the street, saying 'Welcome back' and 'Good to see you' and stuff like that. It's been great so far."
