MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Miguel Montero hit a home run to begin the eighth inning and lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
Montero reached down and drove a first-pitch slider from reliever Chris Capuano (1-2) to deep center for his fifth home run of the season.
Capuano fell to 0-2 in 12 relief appearances this season. His contract was selected on May 29 from AAA Nashville. Prior to this season, he had not pitched in the majors since Sept. 28, 2007 against San Diego. He had his second Tommy John surgery on May 15, 2008.
Blaine Boyer (3-2) pitched a scoreless seventh and eighth and Sam Demel earned his first career save as Arizona put a strong finishing touch on rookie starter Barry Enright' stellar outing.
