PHOENIX (AP) -- Patrick Corbin gave up just three hits in six innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Friday night. Kershaw (2-1) struck out nine, leaving him one shy of 1,000 for his career, but left trailing 1-0 after the Diamondbacks loaded the bases with one out in the eighth inning. Reliever Shawn Tolleson walked both batters he faced to bring in two runs. Corbin (2-0) struck out four, walked three and hit a batter but kept the Dodgers at bay, and Brad Ziegler and David Hernandez each pitched a scoreless frame before J.J. Putz finished it for his second save in three tries. The D-backs took a 1-0 lead in the fourth, getting the first run allowed by Kershaw in 20 innings to start the season. Kershaw was charged with three runs on six hits in 7 13 innings as the Dodgers dropped the series opener a night after their bench-clearing brawl in San Diego resulted in an injury that will sideline starter Zack Greinke for eight weeks. Kershaw walked three after walking just one in 16 innings in his first two starts. A perfectly executed hit-and-run got the Diamondbacks on the board in the fourth. Gerardo Parra singled, then took off to second as Martin Prado batted. Prado hit the ball right where shortstop Justin Sellers was before he went to cover second. That left runners at first and third with one out, and Prado scored when Goldschmidt grounded into a double play to make it 1-0. It stayed that way until the bottom of the eighth, when Jason Kubel's pinch-hit single off the glove of the diving Matt Kemp in center, a bunt base hit by A.J. Pollock and a walk to Gerardo Parra loaded the bases and ended the night for Kershaw. Tolleson, just brought up from Triple-A Albuquerque when Greinke went on the disabled list earlier in the day, relieved Kershaw and walked Prado and Goldschmidt to put the D-backs up 3-0. The Dodgers mounted a serious threat in the top of the fourth when walks to Juan Uribe and A.J. Ellis put runners at first and second with two outs. Sellers lined sharply to shortstop Cliff Pennington, who made a spectacular stop but the speedy Dodgers' shortstop beat out the throw in an extremely close play to load the bases. That brought up Kershaw, who on a 3-2 count grounded up the middle. Second baseman Josh Wilson fielded it and threw the pitcher out at first to end the threat. The Dodgers also threatened in the eighth and ninth. In the eighth, Los Angeles got runners on first and third with one out. Kemp singled with one out and took third when Adrian Gonzalez walked on a wild pitch. But Hernandez struck out Carl Crawford and got Andre Ethier to ground to first to end the inning. In the ninth, Putz struck out Ellis but allowed a single to Nick Punto and a walk to Skip Schumaker walked. Jerry Hairston then bounced one up the middle that Wilson, ranging up the middle, gloved and tossed to Pennington on his backhand with his glove, and the relay to first was in time for the game-ending double play. Early in the game, it was announced that the Padres' Carlos Quentin was suspended for eight games and Hairston one game for their involvement in the brawl that followed Quentin charging the mound at Greinke after being hit by a pitch. Both players remain active pending appeals. Greinke broke his collarbone in the fight. Kershaw's scoreless start to the season was the longest for the Dodgers since Jim Gott went 19 13 innings in 1993. Kershaw's scoreless streak stretched to 23 innings dating to last season, establishing a career high. NOTES: The Diamondbacks send RH Ian Kennedy (2-0, 4.15 ERA) to the mound Saturday night against the Dodgers' left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (1-1, 2.13). ... LH Ted Lilly, on the DL recovering from left shoulder surgery, threw a bullpen session Friday. He and LH Chris Capuano are candidates to take Greinke's spot in the Los Angeles rotation. ... D-backs manager Kirk Gibson says OF Cody Ross, rehabbing at Triple-A Reno from a calf injury, could be ready for the road series against the New York Yankees that starts next Tuesday. ... Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill was a late scratch in what was described as a precautionary move after he was hit in the left hand by a pitch on Wednesday night.
