It was Longoria's third homer of the season, tying him with Joe Panik for the team lead.

The Giants third baseman collected two hits in each of the final two games of the team's previous series in San Diego.

Then, after resting a sore left ankle on Tuesday, Longoria returned to slap three hits, including a two-run homer off D-backs starter Robbie Ray, to help the Giants to victory.
