Goldschmidt lifts D-backs to win over Dodgers

PHOENIX — Paul Goldschmidt homered twice, had a career-high six RBIs and set a team record with five runs scored, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks bash the Los Angeles Dodgers 18-7 on Saturday night.

The Diamondbacks hired Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa as chief baseball officer before the game and beat up on Clayton Kershaw (2-1) once it started, scoring seven runs in the second inning off the two-time Cy Young Award winner.

The Dodgers came storming back with a five-run sixth to pull within 9-7, but Arizona kept hitting to set a team record for runs.

Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning, added a two-run shot in the eighth and had two doubles to finish 4 for 5.

Arizona hit five homers and had 21 hits, including a team-record 13 for extra-bases to emphatically end a seven-game home losing streak to the Dodgers.
