NEW YORK -- Cody Ross singled with one out in the top of the 12th inning as the Arizona Diamondbacks salvaged the finale of their three-game interleague series at Yankee Stadium with a 6-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Thursday night.
The Diamondbacks won after blowing a late lead for the second night in a row. On Wednesday, they squandered a 3-1 lead in the eighth. On Thursday, closer J.J. Putz allowed a solo home run to Francisco Cervelli with one out in the ninth.
Arizona started its winning rally by getting a leadoff double from Gerardo Parra over center fielder Brett Gardner's head off David Phelps (0-1). Parra moved to third after Gardner made a sliding catch at the warning track to take a double away from Martin Prado.
Paul Goldschmidt reached when Cervelli was called for catcher's interference for the second time. Arizona loaded the bases when Phelps' fastball grazed Miguel Montero's right shoulder.
Two pitches later, Ross lined a single to left field and Eric Chavez cleared the bases with a double to deep center field.
Heath Bell (1-0) worked around two singles in the 11th for the win and Tony Sipp retired the side in the 12th.
The blown save spoiled a stellar effort from Patrick Corbin, who held the Yankees to one run and two hits in seven innings. Corbin took a shutout into the sixth before Robinson Cano homered.
Phil Hughes allowed solo home runs to rookie Didi Gregorius and Martin Prado among six hits in seven innings.
Corbin allowed just a leadoff single in the second to Ben Francisco and had five strikeouts (four swinging) through the first five innings.
After giving up the single, Corbin retired 12 of the next 13 hitters on 47 pitches, with four strikeouts and five ground balls.
Arizona struck first when Gregorius connected on a first-pitch fastball from Hughes and sent it into the right-field seats.
The Diamondbacks had runners on second and third with one out after a single by Eric Chavez and a double by Gregorius. Hughes ended the inning by striking out Cliff Pennington with a slider and retiring Parra on the same pitch.
NOTES: While discussing the latest injury news for Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, general manager Brian Cashman indicated that the crack in Jeter's ankle will take four to eight weeks to heal and then he'll need the equivalent of a full spring training. Cashman also said Jeter will address the media sometime during the next homestand, which begins April 25 against Toronto. "(He is handling) it like a pro," Cashman said. "He said, 'I will see you in four to six weeks.' He will never let anybody see any area of weakness or problem. His attitude is, 'You are going to see me sooner than later.'" ... Gregorius made his debut for the Diamondbacks. He appeared in eight games last season for the Cincinnati Reds. "He's got pull power," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "He's pretty aggressive at the plate, but he battles. He sees the righties really well. He said he doesn't see lefties as well, and we told him to make a little adjustment, open up a little bit and get your eyes squared to the pitcher, and it's helped him a lot." ... Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez threw out the first pitch two nights before his first playoff game against the Chicago Bulls.
