LOS ANGELES (AP) – Paul Goldschmidt went 4 for 5 and drove in a pair of runs to help the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Los Angeles 4-1 Wednesday night, snapping a five-game skid against the Dodgers and avoiding a sweep.
Patrick Corbin (14-6) ended a three-game losing streak while improving to 2-0 in three starts at Dodger Stadium. The left-hander allowed one run and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings, striking out two and walking two.
Brad Ziegler pitched the ninth to earn his 10th save in 12 chances.
Hyun-Jin Ryu (13-6) gave up three runs and 10 hits _ his second-most this season _ while striking out one and walking none in his first start since Aug. 30. The left-hander missed his scheduled start last Friday because of a stiff back.
Willie Bloomquist was 3 for 5 with a run scored for Arizona. A.J. Pollock and Tuffy Gosewisch both were 2 for 4 with a run scored.
Arizona took a 2-0 lead in the first on Goldschmidt’s RBI single, the third in a row given up by Ryu to open the game, and Martin Prado’s double-play groundout.
Gosewisch’s RBI double in the second made it 3-0.
Goldschmidt’s RBI single off Brian Wilson in the seventh scored Gosewisch, who doubled off Brandon League, extending Arizona’s lead to 4-0.
Los Angeles got its only run on Yasiel Puig’s 16th homer, a towering shot into the Dodgers’ bullpen in left, in the seventh.
Notes: The Dodgers turned four double plays. … The Dodgers selected the contract of LHP Onelki Garcia from Triple-A Albuquerque and transferred RHP Shawn Tolleson to the 60-day DL. Garcia, who made his major league debut in the ninth, is expected to provide extra protection in the bullpen for leftys Paco Rodriguez and J.P. Howell. … Corbin needs one start for 30 and three innings to reach 200, which would make him the youngest D-backs lefty in club history to do so. … The 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks was marked by a moment of silence, a helicopter flyover and first responders lined up on the first and third base lines during pre-game ceremonies.
