Daniel Hudson Leads Diamondbacks Over Dodgers, 4-1

Daniel Hudson did it all Sunday afternoon, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-1 win over the Dodgers in the series finale at Chase Field in Phoenix. Hudson threw a complete game, picking up his 10th win of the season, but also excelled at the plate. Hudson hit a solo home run in the sixth inning, then added a two-run single in the seventh to put the game away.

Ted Lilly was pitching a good game through six innings, at least outside of the home run allowed to Hudson. He had allowed two runs, both solo home runs, in six innings, striking out nine and walking none. Lilly allowed a leadoff single in the seventh to Chris Young, then left with two outs after two intentional walks. Hudson delivered his two-run single off reliever Blake Hawksworth, improving his bases loaded numbers in his career to 5-for-7 with 10 RBI in his career.

Kemp singled in the seventh inning and later scored on a wild pitch. It was the only run the Dodgers would score on the day. This series featured a pair of struggling right fielders, as Andre Ethier went 0-for-12 and Justin Upton was 0-for-11. The Dodgers travel to San Francisco for a three-game set against the Giants beginning Monday night.

Lilly, Dodgers Seek Series Win Over Diamondbacks In Afternoon Affair In Phoenix

The Dodgers send Ted Lilly to the mound Sunday in the rubber game of their series against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Daniel Hudson gets the start for Arizona. The Dodgers had their five-game winning streak snapped Saturday night with their 3-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Lilly is 6-9 with a 4.79 ERA this season, though he has made a rebound of sorts in his last two starts. Lilly had elbow tenderness that made him unable to throw a bullpen session in between starts for a stretch in June, and he had a span of three starts during which he allowed 18 runs in 14 2/3 innings. However, in his last two starts, Lilly has allowed four runs in 11 innings, with four walks and 10 strikeouts.

Matt Kemp has homered in consecutive games for the fourth time this season. Kemp's shot off the center field wall last night, a 450-foot blast that was Kemp's second longest of the year, was his 24th of the season, tying him with Lance Berkman of the Cardinals for the National League lead. Kemp's 72 RBI are one behind Prince Fielder for the NL lead.

Daniel Hudson, who starts for the Diamondbacks today, is 9-5 with a 3.74 ERA this season. He has faced the Dodgers once in his career, last September 25 in Arizona, and allowed two runs in 8 2/3 innings for the win. Arizona is in second place in the NL West, three and a half games behind San Francisco.

Today's 1:10 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime TIcket. For more news and information on the Dodgers, or on today's game, be sure to read the SB Nation blog True Blue LA.
