Eduardo Escobar, David Peralta and John Ryan Murphy each homered, and the Arizona Diamondbacks pulled away for a 6-0 win over the host Chicago Cubs on Saturday afternoon.

Christian Walker added a career-high four hits and scored a run for Arizona, which earned its fifth win in the past six games. Eight of nine players in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup finished with at least one hit.

Kris Bryant doubled for the Cubs' lone extra-base hit. Chicago's four-game winning streak came to an end.

Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Greinke (3-1) pitched six innings to register his first career victory at Wrigley Field. The five-time All-Star scattered three hits, walked two and struck out four before departing at the 100-pitch mark.

Cubs right-hander Yu Darvish (1-3) gave up three runs on five hits in five innings. He walked three and fanned seven.

Diamondbacks right-hander Taylor Clarke earned a three-inning save in his major league debut. The 25-year-old Virginia native added to his memorable performance with an infield single in his first at-bat.

The Diamondbacks pounced on Darvish with back-to-back homers in the first inning to go ahead 2-0.

Escobar started the scoring with a one-out blast to right field for his second home run of the season. On the next at-bat, Peralta increased his hitting streak to 10 games when he ripped a slider over the right field wall for his third homer.

Darvish found trouble again in the second when he issued back-to-back walks to Nick Ahmed and Murphy. After a sacrifice bunt by Greinke moved runners to second and third, Jarrod Dyson lifted a sacrifice fly to right to make it 3-0.

In the sixth, Arizona tallied three runs against right-handed reliever Allen Webster to increase its lead to 6-0. Walker scored the first run of the inning when he beat a throw that Cubs catcher Willson Contreras could not handle at the plate.

Murphy capped off the big inning with a two-run shot to right field for his third homer in 10 games this season. The 27-year-old already has matched the second-highest home run total of his career.
