It took a little while, but the Diamondbacks finally have their first win against the Dodgers this season. Thanks to a two-run single by Aaron Hill in the 12th inning, Arizona topped Los Angeles 4-2 at Dodger Stadium last night. Or early this morning, really.
The game was tied at 1-1 until Dodgers reliever Chris Withrow allowed the Diamondbacks to take the lead when he threw a wild pitch on an intentional walk to Martin Prado in the top of the ninth inning. Really. However, Juan Uribe tied things up in the bottom of the ninth with a solo homer against Addison Reed. The two sides traded zeroes in the 10th and 11th innings before Hill put Arizona ahead for good. Trevor Cahill, who was moved to the bullpen this week, pitched a perfect bottom of the 12th to notch his first career save.
The win snapped a six-game losing streak for the Diamondbacks, who currently sit at a major-league worst 5-14 on the season. They were winless in their previous five games against the Dodgers this season.
