Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 2

It was more of the same for the Diamondbacks in the second game of their series against the Dodgers in LA. Solid starting pitching, but not enough offense.

Stephen Dunn

Things didn't get off to the best of starts, as the Dodgers scored twice in the first inning before Chase Anderson could record more than one out, D-back killer Adrian Gonzalez knocking a homer with one aboard to give the home team an early lead. However, despite concerns, Anderson then settled down, and went six solid innings after that point, with no further damage. He walked none, and held Los Angeles to four hits with six strikeouts. It took a while against Ryu, but the D-backs eventually got their bats going, scoring twice in the seventh to tie things up, on RBI hits by Cody Ross and, off the bench, A.J. Pollock.

Oliver Perez worked a scoreless seventh, striking out two of the three batters in, and Daniel Hudson then made his second appearance since coming back from Tommy John. It didn't go quite as smoothly as his debut, A couple of balls that might have been turned into outs by infielders were followed by an RBI single with two outs in the eighth, and the Dodgers took the lead again. Hudson was lifted, but Will Harris then allowed a two-RBI double, and our streak of allowing three runs or less ended at nine consecutive games.
