PHOENIX -- Mark Trumbos bat put a dent in San Franciscos NL West hopes. Nike Air Vapormax Shoes Outlet . Wade Mileys left arm didnt do the Giants any favours either. Trumbo hit a grand slam off Ryan Vogelsong, Miley pitched seven effective innings and the Giants dropped further behind in the NL West with a 6-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night. Joaquin Arias had three hits and Buster Posey a run-scoring single for the Giants, who dropped four games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. "They scored all three runs with two outs," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We had a couple of pretty good opportunities, but couldnt get it close enough to put a little more pressure on them." A pair of losses to the Dodgers over the weekend hurt San Franciscos NL West chances, but the Giants were still in control of the NL wild card, entering Mondays game three games up on Pittsburgh for the top spot. What the Giants couldnt afford was a letdown in a three-game series at Chase Field, where they had won 16 of 22 games and six straight series since 2012. The start of this series against the struggling Diamondbacks didnt go so well. Miley (8-11) bounced back from his shortest outing of the season by slowing down his mechanics, allowing one run. Trumbo started Arizonas homestand strong and kept it going against the Giants, hitting his ninth homer off Vogelsong (8-11) in the third inning and a run-scoring single off Juan Gutierrez in the seventh. Trumbo has six hits and nine RBIs the past three games. "Hes kind of hitting his stride lately, swinging the bat much better, more comfortable," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said of Trumbo. Vogelsong pitched 6 2-3 scoreless innings against the Diamondbacks his last outing, but was in trouble by the third in his 30th start of the season. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases against him and Trumbo cashed in, ending a 120 at-bat homerless streak by lifting his second career grand slam just over the wall in right. Arizona loaded the bases again in the sixth against Vogelsong, but Javier Lopez ended the threat by inducing a groundout on his first pitch. Vogelsong allowed four runs and six hits with four walks and five strikeouts. It was a bad inning; it wasnt very good," Vogelsong said. Miley had his shortest outing of the season his last start against the Giants, lasting just two innings after giving up three runs and five hits. The left-hander tried to throw too hard in that outing and spent the days in between trying to slow things down. He did against the Giants in his 100th career start, escaping a jam in the second inning and giving up one run on Brandon Crawfords groundout in the seventh. "Youve just got to put those behind you -- those (games) are going to happen," said Miley, who struck out four. "Youve just got to make adjustments and go on to the next one." PAGAN OUT Giants OF Angel Pagan tried to play Monday night despite a stiff back. When his back was still tight during batting practice, the Giants pulled him from the lineup, hoping that hed be able to play Tuesday after receiving treatment. "We miss him when he is not in the lineup," Bochy said. "We are a different club. He is our leadoff hitter, our catalyst. He is the guy that kind of makes things go. RISP TROUBLES The Giants had been on a tear with runners in scoring position, hitting .361 over the past 18 games. They couldnt come through against Arizona, going 2 for 10 while stranding nine runners. TRAINERS ROOM Giants: 1B Brandon Belt was activated before the game after clearing concussion protocols. He had been on the DL since Aug. 8. Diamondbacks: OF David Peralta (back) has resumed all baseball activities and could join Arizona for its final road trip. UP NEXT Giants: RHP Jake Peavy, Tuesdays starter against Arizona, has allowed two earned runs or less in six straight starts.

Kevin Love went for 19 points and eight boards, Anderson Varejao supplied 15 points and Kyrie Irving netted 12 points with six assists for the Cavs, who had seven players in double figures. Randy Foye poured in a game-high 28 points off the bench for Denver, which has lost four straight. Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson each deposited 14 points in the setback. I think the defense, the way we came out defensively, we sustained it, James said. For the most part, we were in tune. We were locked in. The Cavs came out with a vengeance on Friday night after reports surfaced that there was a locker-room talk between some players following a last-second loss to Utah their last time out. Robinson opened the scoring with a jumper, then Cleveland embarked on a 23-5 run. James assisted on four baskets during the surge, two of which came on Shawn Marions successive 3-pointer and layup, before he capped the spurt with a pair of free throws. Coming in and pretty much giving the team an 18-point lead in the first quarter is tough, Robinson said. Just over a minute later, James lofted an accurate alley-oop pass to Tristan Thompson from halfcourt. The quarter ended with Cleveland scoring the last six points, but the final two came the hard way, as Dion Waiters convertted 2-of-4 free throws after Darrell Arthur was thrown out of the game for a flagrant-2 foul.

After Waiters shook off the hard hit, he helped the visitors to a 38-20 lead entering the second. In that loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, the Cavs managed to only dish out six assists. On Friday, James had eight of his teams 16 first-half assists en route to a 58-45 lead at the break. Cleveland was on cruise control in the third before Foye buried back-to-back 3-pointers, cutting the deficit to 85-71 after three. Denver continued to chip away at the margin, as Chandler netted a pair of free throws prior to his bank shot that made it a six-point game with 4 1/2 minutes left. Thats as close it would get, however. Waiters stole the ball from Chandler on the Nuggets next touch and finished at the other end with a dunk. Another turnover by Denver led to another basket from Waiters as the visitors built their lead back to 10 with three minutes left.
