Recap: Los Angeles vs. Arizona

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Hill's go-ahead two-run single in the top of the 12th inning lifted the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opener of a three-game set.

A.J. Pollock lined a leadoff double off Chris Perez (0-1) before pinch-hitter Cliff Pennington was hit by a pitch. Gerardo Parra moved both runners over with a sacrifice bunt before they both scored on Hill's base hit to center.

"Gibby (Kirk Gibson) told me around the seventh or eighth inning that I was going to win the game for us, I didn't believe him, but he (Perez) left something up. It was a great win," Hill said.

Trevor Cahill fired a 1-2-3 12th to notch his first career save, while Joe Thatcher (1-0) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings to get the win.

Miguel Montero smacked a solo shot for the D-backs, who snapped a six-game losing skid.

Zack Greinke, who has 16 consecutive starts with five-plus innings pitched and two-or-fewer runs allowed -- the longest such streak since 1914 --, surrendered a run on three hits and two walks while fanning eight over six innings in a no-decision.

Juan Uribe sent the game into extras with a game-tying solo homer in the ninth for LA, which has dropped three of its last four.

"We had plenty of chances to win. Zack threw the ball well, Juan kept us in it, we just didn't do enough to win the game," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

The game was scoreless through five innings before Montero launched a two-out solo shot into the seats in right-center in the sixth, but the Dodgers got the run back in the seventh when Scott Van Slyke belted a leadoff homer that just crept over the wall in right-center.

Both teams traded runs in the ninth.

Montero worked a leadoff walk against Chris Withrow and pinch-runner Tony Campana stole second to get into scoring position. A Cody Ross groundout advanced him to third and he scored when Withrow uncorked a wild pitch on an intentional ball while trying to walk Martin Prado.

LA, though, got the run back when Uribe lined a one-out solo blast off the fencing of the left-field foul pole.

Tuffy Gosewisch grounded into an inning-ending double play in the top of the 10th with runners on first and second, while Dee Gordon grounded into a force out with runners on first and second for the Dodgers in the home half.

Game Notes

Arizona starter Wade Miley fanned eight and allowed a run on two hits and five walks over six innings in a no-decision ... The Dodgers were 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base.
