Diamondbacks Top Cardinals in 12
Arizona beat St. Louis at Busch Stadium, eking out a 6-5 win. The win was due in large part to left fielder Ed Campbell, who earned player of the game honors. Orlando Villegas, credited with the win, is now 1-0. He allowed no runs on 1 hit in 2 innings. Phil Riley earned the save for Arizona, his 1st of the year.

The game was at a stalemate until center fielder Dave Hoover came to bat in the top of the 12th. Facing St. Louis pitcher Juan Castro, he hit a 1-0 slider for a run-scoring single. It was a game-changer, putting Arizona on top, 6-5.

"Exciting game to play in," said Hoover. "Getting the win makes it even better."

At 5-2, the Diamondbacks have played well so far.
