Giants, Dyson blow road season finale at Arizona

PHOENIX – The Giants finished the road portion of their season just as they began it: with a blown save and a trudge back to the dugout at Chase Field.

Sam Dyson couldn’t hold a two-run lead in a ninth inning that included another home run from J.D. Martinez, a pair of singles, an intentional walk and then an unintentional one to David Peralta that forced home the winning run in a 4-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Giants were poised to win their first road series in almost three months and capture the victory that would keep them from joining the Century Club. Instead, they finished the road season with an abysmal 3-20-3 road series record away from AT&T Park, and they must win at least one game in their final weekend series against the San Diego Padres to keep from joining the 1985 club as the only teams in franchise history to lose 100 games.

No Giants starting pitcher will reach double-digit victories this season. Jeff Samardzija was denied his 10th win despite six strong innings to finish a season in which he broke a franchise record previously held by Juan Marichal.
