Recap


Diamondbacks 5, Dodgers 3: Jason Kubel homered and Gerardo Parra sparked a comeback with a two-run double as host Arizona beat Los Angeles for the second straight night.

Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill (8-8) allowed three runs on six hits in seven innings, striking out six and walking one.

Stephen Drew and Paul Goldschmidt added sacrifice flies as Arizona erased an early two-run deficit for the second straight game.

David Hernandez tossed a scoreless eighth before J.J. Putz closed it out for his 16th save to pull the Diamondbacks within five games of the National League West-leading Dodgers.

Chad Billingsley (4-9) lost his fifth consecutive start, giving up four runs on six hits in six innings. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter.

Jerry Hairston Jr. belted a two-run homer and A.J. Ellis had three hits and a solo blast for the Dodgers, who maintained their half-game edge over San Francisco in the West.
