Diamondbacks 6, Dodgers 3: Paul
Goldschmidt and Miguel Montero each homered while Bronson Arroyo tossed
five strong innings as visiting Arizona avoided a three-game sweep.

(7-4) allowed one run on five hits with one walk and four relievers
held the Dodgers to two runs (one earned) on five hits over the
final four frames.
Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp had two hits apiece for Los Angeles, which
lost for the fourth time in 14 games against Arizona this season.
Josh Beckett (4-4) yielded four runs (three earned) over seven
innings in falling to 2-6 in 11 career starts versus the
Adrian Gonzalez drew a leadoff walk in the second and later scored
on Jamie Romak’s groundout, but Arizona regained the lead in the
fifth as David Peralta doubled, stole third and scored on a wild

and Aaron Hill scored after Los Angeles second baseman Dee Gordon
mishandled Martin Prado’s grounder.
The Dodgers, who were seeking their first three-game sweep since
April 30-May 1, trailed 4-2 and had two on and one out in the eighth
before Brad Ziegler got Romak to ground into an inning-ending double
play. The Diamondbacks added some insurance in the bottom half as
Montero deposited a two-run homer into the seats in left-center off
