Buckner dominant as D-backs edge A's

BY foxsports • May 23, 2009

Billy Buckner's curveball was his ticket back to the big leagues, but the Arizona right-hander had to do without his best pitch in his first start since 2007.

Not that it mattered.

Buckner pitched 7 1/3 strong innings, Chris Young homered for the first time in a month and the Diamondbacks held on to beat the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Friday night.
