Dodgers 3, Ari­zona 1

Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS - — Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: With the score tied in the sev­enth in­ning, 1-1, Chris Heisey drew a two-out walk, which was fol­lowed by a dou­ble to left-cen­ter by Yasiel Puig. With run­ners on sec­ond and third, the Di­a­mond­backs elected to in­ten­tion­ally walk Adrian Gon­za­lez and pitch to Howie Ken­drick. The strat­egy back­fired on the vis­i­tors, as Ken­drick sin­gled off Ad­di­son Reed to drive in two runs and move the Dodgers in front, 3-1.

ON THE MOUND: Car­los Frias gave up eight hits over 62⁄

3 innings, but limited the Di­a­mond­backs to one run. The only run charged to him came when he un­corked a wild pitch to Cliff Pen­ning­ton with Jar­rod Sal­ta­la­mac­chia at third base in the sec­ond in­ning. Ken­ley Jansen pre­served the Dodgers’ two-run lead by record­ing his sev­enth save. Adam Lib­er­a­tore (2-1), who recorded the fi­nal out of the sev­enth in­ning, was cred­ited with the win.

AT THE PLATE: In ad­di­tion to driv­ing in the go-ahead runs, Ken­drick blasted an op­po­site-field home run off Di­a­mond­backs starter Rob­bie Ray in the sixth in­ning. The Dodgers were limited to seven hits for the game, in­clud­ing two each from Ken­drick and Puig.

EX­TRA BASES: In the lat­est round of All-Star bal­lot­ing, Gon­za­lez was over­taken by Paul Gold­schmidt of the Di­a­mond­backs as the top vote-get­ter among Na­tional League first base­man. … Joc Ped­er­son was out of the lineup be­cause Manager Don Mat­tingly said he sensed the rookie out­fielder was “worn down.” … Justin Turner’s left knee was still stiff, Mat­tingly said. Turner made an early de­par­ture the pre­vi­ous night af­ter foul­ing a ball off the knee.

DRAFT DAY 2: On the sec­ond day of the am­a­teur draft, the Dodgers se­lected a cou­ple of lo­cal play­ers, tak­ing Lake­wood High short­stop Bren­don Davis in the fifth round and Cal State Dominguez Hills right-han­der Kevin Brown in the ninth. Brown is not re­lated to the for­mer Dodgers pitcher with the same name.

UP NEXT: Brett An­der­son (2-4, 3.29 ERA) will face the Di­a­mond­backs and Jeremy Hel­lick­son (4-3, 4.88) at Dodger Sta­dium on Wed­nes­day at 7 p.m. TV: Sport­sNet LA. Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
