Diamondbacks 7, Dodgers 1

Associated Press  |  Last updated July 08, 2012
Trevor Bauer scattered two hits over six scoreless innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1 on Sunday. Paul Goldschmidt homered, doubled and drove in a career-high four runs and Justin Upton was a homer short of the cycle for the Diamondbacks, who won the final three games of the four-game set to move within four games of the NL West-leading Dodgers. Bauer (1-1) struck out six, walked one and retired the final 12 batters he faced. Patrick Corbin pitched the final three innings for his first career save. Chris Capuano (9-4) allowed a season-high five runs on nine hits over five innings for the Dodgers, who remained a half-game ahead of the San Francisco Giants heading into the All Star break. Los Angeles had not led the division at the break since 2009. Capuano struck out five and walked one. Unlike his first two starts, in which he allowed eight earned runs on 11 hits in only 7 1/3 innings, Bauer (1-1) rarely was pressured by the Dodgers. Juan Rivera led off the second inning with a double to left and Capuano doubled to right to lead off the third but were stranded in scoring position. Bauer retired Tony Gwynn Jr. on a fly ball to left after an 11-pitch at bat for the first out of the third and cruised from there, retiring the next 11 batters he faced on a total of 47 pitches. Upton tripled home Willie Bloomquist in the first and scored on a ground-rule double by Goldschmidt to give the Diamondbacks an early 2-0 lead - the first two runs Arizona had scored in any of Bauer's first three starts. Goldshmidt made it 5-0 in the fifth with his 12th home run, a line drive a half-dozen rows deep into the left-field stands. Miguel Montero hit a bases-loaded, two-run single in the seventh to extend Arizona's lead to 7-0. Juan Uribe hit a pinch-hit sacrifice fly in the ninth for the Dodgers. NOTES: Arizona has won four of its past five against Los Angeles. . Upton has hit two triples in his past three games. . Capuano fell to 2-5 in eight career starts and nine appearances overall against Arizona. . The Diamondbacks are 13-5 in their past 18 homes games. . Dodgers 1B James Loney, whose modest six-game hitting streak was snapped on Saturday, was given his sixth day off of the season Sunday. . Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill singled and scored in the seventh and has hit safely in 22 of his past 23 home games.
