Giants swept by Diamondbacks in split-squad games 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Daniel Hudson, coming back from two Tommy John surgeries, pitched two scoreless innings, Mark Trumbo homered for the second day in a row and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 10-5 in a meeting of a pair of split squads on Sunday.

Trumbo had a two-run, opposite-field shot to right-center off Ty Blatch. Blatch also gave up a two-run homer to Arizona prospect Brandon Drury. Guillermo Quiroz homered for San Francisco.

Hudson, in his spring training debut, allowed only an infield single, striking out one with no walks. He threw 35 pitches, 24 of them strikes.

Manager Chip Hale said the Diamondbacks haven't decided whether Hudson will open the season as a starter or reliever.

Meanwhile, David Peralta and Cody Ross each drove in two runs, and Ender Inciarte had two hits and scored twice to lead the Diamondbacks to a 12-2 win over the Giants in another split-squad game Sunday.

Jeremy Hellickson, acquired in a trade last November with Tampa Bay, allowed one hit with a strikeout over two innings during his Diamondbacks debut.

Arizona struck for five runs in the fourth inning, starting with a leadoff triple by Gerald Laird. Four of the runs came with two outs, helped by an error and a passed ball.

Peralta, a regular in the Diamondbacks' outfield the second half of last season, had two hits. He's trying to keep his place on the major league roster as a starter or reserve.
