Aaron Hill drove in three runs and made a game-ending diving stop, Miguel Montero hit a two-run single in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied for a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

Trailing 3-2 in the eighth, Detroit went ahead on Torii Hunter's two-run single up the middle off Brad Ziegler.

Eury De la Rosa (2-0) got the final two outs in the inning and Arizona rallied when Phil Coke (1-2) walked two in the bottom half after being hit by a line drive. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases on a two-out walk and Montero came through with his single up the middle off Ian Krol to put Arizona up 5-4.

David Peralta tied a team record with two triples and Hill made his diving stop in the outfield grass to help Addison Reed work around a walk in the ninth for his 24th save.
