Recap: Minnesota vs. Arizona

Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Mark Trumbo's two-run homer highlighted a five-run Arizona fifth inning as the Diamondbacks defeated the Minnesota Twins, 6-2, in the opener of a three-game set.

Didi Gregorius had three doubles, an RBI and a run scored for Arizona, which snapped a six-game losing streak. A.J. Pollock also posted three hits and scored a run.

Josh Collmenter (11-8) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over 6 1/3 innings to notch the win.

"He's got good baseball savvy," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said of Collmenter. "He just has a sense of what to throw."

Ricky Nolasco (5-12) surrendered five runs on nine hits and a walk over 4 2/3 frames for the Twins, who have dropped three straight games.

"Just never got into any kind of rhythm," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of Nolasco.

The Twins led 1-0 before the D-backs surged ahead in the fifth.

Jake Lamb and Chris Owings singled to begin the frame before Gregorius' double down the right-field line brought home Lamb. Owings scored on Ender Inciarte's groundout, and a wild pitch during Pollock's at-bat allowed Gregorius to scamper home from third.

Pollock then singled up the middle before Trumbo golfed his two-run shot into the flowers over the big wall in right-center.

Pinch-hitter Josmil Pinto's RBI single in the seventh trimmed the margin to 5-2, but Owings' RBI groundout in the eighth gave Arizona a 6-2 cushion.

Game Notes

The Diamondbacks also put an end to a 10-game road losing streak and improved to 3-18 over their last 21 tilts away from home ... Nolasco was 3-0 in four starts against Arizona last year ... Arizona was 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position, while Minnesota finished 2-for-8.
