Drey Jameson impresses again, Diamondbacks beat Dodgers
LOS ANGELES — Drey Jameson pitched six strong innings in his second big league game and Ketel Marte homered as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 Tuesday to split a doubleheader.
The Dodgers won the opener 6-5 as rookie Miguel Vargas drove in the go-ahead run with an infield single in a five-run eighth.
Jameson (2-0) and the Diamondbacks ended the Dodgers’ five-game winning streak. After throwing seven scoreless innings in his major league debut last week against San Diego, the 25-year-old righty extended his career-opening scoreless streak to 12 innings before finally giving up a pair of runs on Max Muncy’s 21st homer.
Jameson allowed two runs and seven hits, striking out seven and walking one.
Reyes Moronta pitched the ninth for his first save. Arizona won for only the second time in its last 22 games at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers, who have the best record in the majors at 103-45, committed a season-high four errors and gave up three unearned runs. Shortstop Trea Turner had a second-inning error that led to a run, while pitcher Tyler Anderson and right fielder Mookie Betts committed errors in the sixth that allowed two more runs to score as Arizona took a 3-0 lead.
Anderson (15-4) returned from the paternity list and allowed three runs — all unearned — and two hits in six innings.
Marte’s home run in the seventh off Phil Bickford gave Arizona a 4-2 lead. It was his 12th of the season. Corbin Carroll had an RBI triple in the ninth inning for Arizona.
Ryan Pepiot (3-0) got the win in the opener with three innings of relief. Kevin Ginkel (1-1) took the loss.
The Dodgers paid tribute to former shortstop Maury Wills, who died Monday at 89. Wills helped the Dodgers win three World Series titles and was the 1962 NL MVP when he stole a then-record 104 bases.
Dodgers: Turner left the doubleheader opener after he was hit in the side by a deflected throw in the fifth inning, but was in the starting lineup for the second game.
D-backs: LHP Madison Bumgarner (6-15, 5.01 ERA) will be making his 40th career start against the Dodgers, with a 2.93 ERA against them in 245 1/3 innings.
Dodgers: RHP Dustin May (2-2, 3.46) is making his sixth start since returning from Tommy John surgery and his 11th start over the past two seasons.
