Diamondbacks Rally Late, Come Up Short In 3-2 Loss To Dodgers

The Arizona Diamondbacks fell 3-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night, snapping the team's two-game win streak. Arizona drops to 87-73 on the season.

The Dodgers came out swinging and put points on the board right away, scoring two runs in the very first inning. Matt Kemp and Jerry Sands both hit singles to drive in runs, and the Diamondbacks gave up four total hits in the inning.

The game turned into a defensive showdown from there, with both teams failing to score again until the eighth inning. Geoff Glum grounded out to the short stop and brought Ryan Roberts in to score in the top of the inning, pulling the Diamondbacks within a run at 2-1. The Dodgers, however, countered with a run of their own in the bottom of the eighth on a single by Aaron Miles. A single by Miguel Montero in the top of the ninth gave the Diamondbacks one more run but left Arizona with a 3-2 loss.

Pitcher Daniel Hudson (16-10) pitched seven innings, allowing five hits and two runs while striking out four batters. The pitcher had led his team to victory in each of his past four wins but fell just a little short in this one.

The Diamondbacks fall to 87-73 on the season and move into a tie with the Milwaukee Brewers for second place in the National League. Arizona leads the San Francisco Giants by seven games with 12 games left in the season.
