Byrnes gets in the swing with 2 hits against SF

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Eric Byrnes appears to be fully recovered from the hamstring problems that sidelined him for much of last season -- at least at the plate.

Byrnes had two more hits Tuesday for the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 7-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants.

The Diamondback outfielder had singles in his first two at-bats, giving him five straight hits after going 0-for-3 in his first game since being sidelined June 30 because of a hamstring injury.

He struck out in his last at bat, and misjudged a fly ball to center field that allowed three runs to score.
