Tuesday: Angels (Nick Adenhart) vs. Diamondbacks (Brandon Webb), 1:05 p.m., Tucson Electric Park
Monday: Diamondbacks 6, Giants 5
Batting recap: Eric Byrnes, Jeff Salazar and Augie Ojeda each had two hits. Conor Jackson drove in three runs and belted his second home run. Jackson, who is batting .333, has 20 hits this spring.
Pitching recap: Micah Owings gave up one run through the first five innings but was tagged for three in the sixth. He yielded a two-run home run and a solo shot.
Left-hander Doug Slaten, making his first spring training appearance, had one scoreless inning, giving up a hit. Brandon Medders allowed one hit in 1 1/2 innings.
Notable: The two-run home run Owings gave up to Giants outfielder Fred Lewis in the sixth cleared the 40-foot wall in center field.
Quotable: “It was not good early on,” Arizona manager Bob Melvin said. “(Owings) walked a few guys and was behind every hitter. He got better as he went on. (But) the last couple of guys got away from him.”
