Bochy challenges for final out, Giants beat Dbacks for sweep

PHOENIX (AP) - Manager Bruce Bochy successfully challenged to get a game-ending double play after Brandon Crawford singled in a run in the ninth inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Sunday to complete a four-game sweep.

Bochy challenged that Rickie Weeks was safe at first base on what turned out to be a 4-6-3 double play. If the call had stood, the tying run would have scored from third. It was San Francisco's fourth double play of the game.

Santiago Casilla escaped the trouble for his ninth save.

The Giants had just one hit - Trevor Brown's home run - through eight innings. But they opened the ninth with three singles off Brad Ziegler (1-2).

Hunter Strickland (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning to get the victory.
