Recap: Los Angeles vs. Arizona

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI and Chris Johnson tripled and had an RBI for the D-backs, who have won eight in a row against the Dodgers.

"It feels good, especially against a good team that we're trying to catch," said Kubel of his homer.

Brad Bergesen (1-0) tossed two shutout innings to get the win and JJ Putz stranded two in the 11th to pick up his 28th save.

Mark Ellis drove in a pair of runs and Andre Either also knocked in a run for Los Angeles, which has dropped five of six.

"We gave ourselves a chance but we didn't do enough to win the game," said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. "We just have to keep working."

Matt Guerrier (0-2) was saddled with the loss after giving up Kubel's homer.

Arizona jumped to a 1-0 lead in the second when Johnson tripled to score Miguel Montero.

The D-backs added two more in the fifth when Trevor Cahill singled to score Johnson before coming around on Hill's double.

Los Angeles knotted it up at 3-3 with two in the fifth and one in the sixth.
