Diamondbacks blank Dodgers
Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Patrick Corbin fired six solid innings of three-hit ball, as the Arizona Diamondbacks blanked the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-0, on Friday in the opener of a three-game set at Chase Field.
Corbin (2-0) fanned four and walked three in the start, while Brad Ziegler and David Hernandez each tossed a scoreless inning in relief. J.J. Putz kept the Dodgers off the board in the ninth to secure his second save of the season.
Martin Prado knocked in a run and registered two of Arizona's six hits, while Paul Goldschmidt added an RBI for the Diamondbacks, who have won two straight.
The Dodgers, meanwhile, were coming off a series victory over the Padres which included a bench-clearing brawl in Thursday's series finale after LA starter Zack Greinke plunked San Diego outfielder Carlos Quentin in the sixth inning.
Los Angeles, which learned Friday that Greinke will miss eight weeks with a broken collarbone, managed just six hits and left 10 men on base against the Arizona pitching staff.
Clayton Kershaw (2-1) was a tough-luck loser, as the lanky left-hander, who had spun 16.0 scoreless innings over his first two starts, was charged with all three runs on six hits with three walks and nine strikeouts over 7 1/3 frames.
