Ryan Roberts started at third base for the D-backs on Sunday and went 2-for-4 with an RBI. It was Roberts' fifth straight start at either second or third base, and he is 5-for-18 (.278) in that span, with three walks, one double and one home run. Josh Bell is hitting 2-for-13 (.154) since his May 21 callup, which figured to cut into Roberts' playing time. "Rhino is a dirtbag baseball player, and I say that in a very complimentary way," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "He can do a lot. He's versatile, both offensively and defensively. He brings a lot for this team. I've asked him to do some things in preparation, he's done them. He deserves to play." Catcher Miguel Montero, who signed a five-year, $60 million contract extension on Saturday, is expected to return to the lineup on Monday after missing the previous five games. He tweaked his groin last Monday and has been out of action since. Montero is batting .255 with a .693 OPS and hasn't homered since April 14. Giants: Adjusting the Belt
First baseman Brandon Belt hasn't homered this season and has six hits in his past 41 at-bats. But the Giants are hopeful that some recent mechanical adjustments soon will begin paying dividends. Based on guidance from the team's coaches, Belt has made his stance more open and upright, and he also had a conversation with manager Bruce Bochy. "He was a little down," Bochy said. "We talked about a lot of things, about a hitting approach. Sometimes you have to make adjustments, and that's where he's at." The 24-year-old didn't start any of the Giants' three games in Miami but entered each game off the bench, going 1-for-4. He struck out in his lone at-bat on Sunday. Melky Cabrera went 4-for-4 on Sunday for his 24th multihit game in 47 starts. It was Cabrera's seventh game with at least three hits, and he now is batting .369, including .452 on the just completed seven-game road trip. "It's ridiculous," Giants pitcher Matt Cain said. "He has just been doing this since the spring, so it has just been what we've been seeing. It has just been standard for him. We have been so used to it that if he doesn't get hits, we think something is wrong." Worth noting
The Giants will play 13 of their next 16 games at home, surrounding a trip to San Diego. They won't leave the West Coast until traveling to Washington on July 3. The D-backs, starting a six-game road trip, actually have played better away from home this season. They are 10-15 at Chase Field, including a 6-15 stretch, compared with 12-11 elsewhere.
