Gonzalez finished with two hits and three RBIs while
stretching his hitting streak to nine games. Dodgers starter Dan
Haren (2-0) did just enough to win for the second time in three
starts, allowing three runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings
before four relievers bridged the gap to closer Kenley Jansen,
who worked a perfect ninth for his fourth save.
Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (0-4) went four innings, allowing
seven runs (six earned) and five hits while striking out eight
and walking five. Mark Trumbo hit a three-run homer in the
seventh to cut a five-run deficit to two and Gerardo Parra had
three hits and two runs scored in the leadoff spot for Arizona,
which was 5-for-30 with runners in scoring position during the
Cahill, who came into the season 6-0 against the Dodgers with
2.01 ERA, couldn't get out of the fifth inning for the second
time this season against Los Angeles, walking the leadoff batter
for the second time to start the fifth inning and then was
lifted after yielding a double to Gonzalez. Andre Ethier plated
one run with a groundout and another scored on an error by first
baseman Paul Goldschmidt, giving the Dodgers a 7-3 lead.
The bullpen managed to keep the Dodgers from scoring until Juan
Uribe hit a solo home run in the seventh for an 8-3 lead. That
proved big as Trumbo followed with his shot in the bottom half
of the inning.
