Galarraga pitches 6 in Tucson benefit game

Armando Galarraga went six innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 Friday in a game between split squads that benefited victims of the January shooting that killed six and injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Dallas Green, brother of victim Christina-Taylor Green and grandson of former major league manager Dallas Green, threw out a first pitch. So did Ken Dorushka, who was injured in the shooting.

Galarraga allowed three runs and five hits as he tries to make Arizona's rotation.

Dodgers starter Tim Redding came out of the game with lower back pain after three innings. He allowed two runs and six hits in three innings.

Ryan Roberts hit a tiebreaking double in the seventh.
