Final in 10
10:15 PM ET, April 10, 2014
AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
Campana drove Pennington in with the go-ahead run on an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning to lead the Diamondbacks to their first back-to-back wins of the season with a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night.
"It's just us being ready," Campana said. "We both kind of kept our routine the same. You kind of come in every day ready to play. Today we got the start and both did a pretty good job at the plate and got the win."
Campana had a career-high four hits and Pennington added three, including a two-run single as both players made just their second starts of the young season.
"They're not rookies, and they prepare themselves properly," manager Kirk Gibson said. "They were ready to play tonight."
Miguel Montero also drove in two runs for the Diamondbacks, who won the final two games of the series.
Michael Morse hit a two-run double that gave the Giants the lead, but an error by third baseman Pablo Sandoval allowed the tying run to score in the eighth and San Francisco fell in extra innings to lose their first home series since August against Boston.
Pennington hit a one-out single off Yusmeiro Petit (0-1) in the 10th and then stole second base on a 2-2 pitch to Campana with two outs. Campana then blooped a single just over the outstretched glove of second baseman Brandon Hicks to score the go-ahead run.
"It took some pressure off once he got to second," Campana said. "I knew I just had to get it through the infield somehow. Got jammed and got over his head barely."
The Diamondbacks failed to score in the seventh after loading the bases with no outs but got the tying run an inning later on Sandoval's bad throw.
With runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth, Campana hit a slow grounder to Sandoval, who rushed his throw to first. The ball sailed over Brandon Belt's head, allowing Gerardo Parra to score the tying run from second.
"You have to keep your poise," manager Bruce Bochy said. "He got in a rush mode there. With the game on the line, you have to be a bit more cautious. You have to know the situation."
Sandoval had a chance to make up for that mistake in the bottom half but couldn't deliver. The Giants loaded the bases with one out with help from a fly to center that Campana misjudged to give Brandon Crawford a leadoff double.
Belt hit a fly ball to left field that was not deep enough to let Crawford tag from third. Sandoval then flied out to deep right to end the inning.
The Diamondbacks jumped on top early against Ryan Vogelsong with a two-run single by Pennington in the second inning and a two-run double by Montero in the third to take a 4-1 lead.
The Giants' hitters chipped away after the early deficit, getting a run in the third on the first bunt single of Buster Posey's career when he surprised Arizona with a two-out bunt with Angel Pagan on third.
Back-to-back doubles by Morse and Crawford to open the fourth made it 4-3, and Morse's double off Will Harris in the fifth gave the Giants the lead.
Arizona manager Kirk Gibson unsuccessfully challenged a play at second base in the first inning when Campana was caught stealing to end the inning after a strikeout to Paul Goldschmidt. ... The Giants held a pregame ceremony honoring their former home, Candlestick Park, which is set to be torn down later this year. ... Madison Bumgarner (1-0) takes the mound for the Giants on Friday when they open a series against Colorado. ... Brandon McCarthy (0-1) is set to take the mound for Arizona on Friday in the opener of a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Randall Delgado has thrown his changeup 31 percent of the time to lefties since the start of 2013, the fifth-highest percentage among all pitchers who have made at least 20 starts over that time.
