 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Mark Trumbo homered in his return to the lineup and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 Saturday in a split-squad game shortened to 4 1/2 innings because of rain.
The game was delayed 36 minutes at the start by showers. The rain came back in the bottom of the fifth inning and the game was called with one out.
Logan Schafer tripled and scored in the top of the first for the Brewers. Trumbo answered with a towering home run to left field in the bottom half.
Trumbo went 1 for 2. The Diamondbacks newcomer was scratched from the lineup on Friday with a sore left heel.
Paul Goldschmidt walked for Arizona and scored on Miguel Montero's double.
Arizona starter Trevor Cahill went 3 1-3 innings, allowing one run and two hits. Cahill struck out four, walked one and hit a batter.
Brewers starter Hiram Burgos went two innings.
