PHOENIX (AP) - Jake Peavy got his first win of the season, Buster Posey drove in four runs, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-4 on Saturday night for their fifth straight victory.

The win gave San Francisco its 10th straight series victory in Arizona. The Giants haven't won this many series in a row on the road since they took 13 straight against the Boston Beaneaters/Doves from 1903 to 1907.

The Diamondbacks, two games into a 10-game homestand, have lost five straight since climbing to .500.

Peavy (1-4) allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1/3 innings. Sergio Romo pitched the final 1 1/3 innings for his first save of the season.

The Diamondbacks' Chase Anderson (4-4) had his shortest outing of the season. In 3 2/3 innings, he allowed seven runs on 10 hits, nine of them singles.
