SAN DIEGO (AP) — Bronson Arroyo and two relievers held the punchlessSan Diego Padres to three hits and Aaron Hill hit a two-run single to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-0 victory Friday night in a matchup of the bottom two teams in the NL West.

The Diamondbacks have the worst record in the majors — 10-22 — and came in with the worst ERA, 5.20. The Padres came with a .217 batting average, worst in the NL and second-worst in the majors.

Arroyo (2-2) lowered his ERA from 7.77 to 6.03. He didn't allow a hit until Yonder Alonso singled to right with one out in the fifth. Until then, the only baserunner was leadoff batter Everth Cabrera, who reached in the first when Arroyo couldn't handle a chopper for an error. Arroyo then proceeded to get 13 straight outs, including when Seth Smith grounded into an inning-ending double play in the first.
