TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The young girl killed in the attack on Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has been honored with a charity game between the Diamondbacks and the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox beat Arizona 12-1 Monday in the exhibition to benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Fund.

The game was played in Tucson, where the shooting occurred in January. Both teams used to hold spring training in the city.

The 9-year-old Green was among six people killed.

Her father, John, who is a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and her brother Dallas threw out first pitches.
