SAN FRANCISCO — Hitting his first home run in a month gave Aaron Hill a sense of relief. Doing so in a victory made it even better.

Hill homered, doubled and scored twice, Wade Miley pitched seven shutout innings, and the Diamondbacks beat the Giants 2-0 on Saturday.

“It felt good to put a run on the board,” Hill said. “There are always going to

be times when you will be struggling. It’s good just to contribute.”

David Peralta and Gerardo Parra each added two hits for the Diamondbacks, who won their fourth in six games.

 Miley (5-6) allowed four hits and won his second straight start for the first time since early April. He has given up three runs over his past 22⅔ innings.

“I found it later in the game. They were hitting the ball hard but right at people,” Miley said.

Brad Ziegler worked the eighth, and Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his 21st save in 26 chances.
