Recap


Diamondbacks 11, Dodgers 4: Ryan Roberts homered and drove in three runs and Willie Bloomquist collected three hits and scored three times as host Arizona scored in each of the first five innings to snap Los Angeles' six-game winning streak.

Aaron Hill had a pair of run-scoring singles among his three hits while Justin Upton homered and Jason Kubel added a two-run triple for the Diamondbacks, who saw every member of their starting lineup record at least one hit.

The offensive explosion was more than enough for Joe Saunders (3-3), who allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings.

Ted Lilly (5-1) was not as fortunate. The veteran yielded eight runs on nine hits and walked five in 3 1/3 innings to suffer his first loss of the season.

Lilly has allowed 17 runs in his last three starts - a stark contrast from the six he permitted in his previous five outings.

A.J. Ellis homered and James Loney had an RBI single for the Dodgers, who scored six or more runs in each game during their winning streak.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Bloomquist extended his hitting streak to eight games with an RBI triple in the second inning. ... Upton's opposite-field blast was his fifth homer of the season. ... Arizona will have a day off Thursday before beginning a three-game home series versus Milwaukee. ... The Dodgers will host Houston in a three-game set beginning Friday.
