Zack Greinke's bid for his first career no-hitter was thwarted by Pittsburgh's Gregory Polanco's leadoff home run in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks held on to beat the Pirates 2-1 on Thursday night.

The Pirates lost their sixth game in a row Friday, the fifth straight on a seven-game West Coast trip, when Arizona hit for the cycle in seven-run third inning against Tyler Glasnow during an 11-4 victory at Chase Field.
