The D-backs won their franchise record 13th consecutive game, finishing the sweep of the Dodgers

The streak of innings without trailing, however, did not survive the night. After the D-backs left two men in scoring position in the top of the first, the Dodgers got an RBI ground-out off Taijuan Walker in the bottom half to take a 1-0 lead. That was all they would score off Walker, who worked through some control issues to pitch six innings, allowing four hits and three walks, with four K’s. He also drove in Arizona’s first run, doubling home A.J. Pollock in the second.

That was the only scoring either side managed until the seventh. Adam Rosales had a pinch-hit RBI double to give the Diamondbacks the lead, and later in the inning, Daniel Descalso was just hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, making the score 3-1. Jorge De La Rosa and Archie Bradley bridged the gap to Fernando Rodney, who worked a perfect ninth inning with a pair of strikeouts.
