Diamondbacks 6, Dodgers 8

Mike Bolsinger was great through the first three innings but couldn't hold off the powerful Dodgers lineup the next time through the order. A combined eight Dodger runs in two innings handed the D-backs their 15th loss of the season.

All it took was one time through the order for the Los Angeles hitters to figure out Mike Bolsinger. The Dodgers cashed in three runs in the fourth off the rookie and he was chased in the fifth with the bases loaded and no outs. Adrian Gonzalez and company then scored five in the inning to jump ahead four.

Somehow, after surrendering four runs in the third – albeit some bad defense -- Dan Haren managed to work his way into the eighth where he recorded one outs before Mattingly decided it was the end of the night for the veter. Haren finished the night with a great line of 7 1/3 IP giving up just two earned runs on seven hits, striking out five.

The D-backs scored two in the eighth off Brian Wilson to pull the game within two, but ultimately couldn't drive in any more against Kenley Jansen to give the Dodgers their sixth win in seven games against Arizona this season.
