The Diamondbacks beat the A's as Trevor Cahill topped Jarrod Parker in a matchup of pitcher's who were traded for each other six months ago. Cahill was charged with two runs and seven hits in seven-and-one third innings of work. He also struck out seven while lowering his ERA to 3.36. Miguel Montero's grand slam off Parker in the bottom of the fifth proved to be the difference as Arizona defeated Oakland 8-3. The D'Backs will go for the sweep on Sunday afternoon with Joe Saunders taking on Travis Blackley.
