Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 4

Clayton Kershaw was very very good tonight. In fact, he was so good Jim had to break out St. Penelope to end the no hitter in the sixth inning. Even without the no hitter, however, it was still a top notch start from one of the best pitchers in the game.

Meanwhile, Patrick Corbin was also pretty much what you expect: the definition of an average, number five starter. He went just shy of five innings and gave up three runs. He did it on eight strikeouts and only two walks, so that is a positive. He just got beat a couple times in key spots.

After the no hitter was broken up the Diamondbacks did have a couple chances but weren't able to make anything of Most of them. It was different in the ninth. A three run homer from Descalso closed the gap to one. However, Herrmann struck out with the tying run on first to end the game. Full recap to follow as soon as I get home from my fireworks show!
