Arizona 3, Los Angeles 4

Patrick Corbin had a mostly average outing, though he only lasted 4 23 innings. Unfortunately for the Diamondbacks, that sort of performance rarely stacks up well against Clayton Kershaw.

Arizon fared better against he Dodger bullpen, but it was simply too little too late.
