PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) – Josh Collmenter faced the minimum in a three-hitter, Aaron Hill homered and had two RBIs and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the light-hitting Reds 4-0 Thursday night.

Collmenter (4-2) breezed through his first career complete game, joining Randy Johnson as the only Arizona pitcher to face the minimum 27 batters in a nine-inning game. Johnson did it during his perfect game against Atlanta in 2004.

Hill, who went 1 for 10 in a three-game series against San Diego, had three hits, including a solo homer in the sixth inning off Tony Cingrani (2-5). A.J. Pollock had a double, a triple and scored two runs from the leadoff spot for the Diamondbacks, who have won five of seven.

The Reds had one runner reach second base, Brayan Pena in the third inning, and he was thrown out at third after tagging up on a flyball to center.
