Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer off Barry Zito and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Tuesday. Zito threw 83 pitches in five innings, his longest outing of the spring. He allowed three runs and seven hits while walking four and striking out three. Three of Arizona's top prospects figured prominently in the game. Trevor Bauer, drafted No. 3 overall last year out of UCLA, got the start and struggled through three innings. He allowed two runs and six hits while striking out two. Another promising pitcher, Patrick Corbin, was very impressive. The left-hander struck out six in four scoreless innings of one-hit ball. He walked two. And outfielder A.J. Pollock, a first-round draft pick in 2009, hit a game-winning homer in the bottom of the ninth off Wilmin Rodriguez.
