Dodgers Vs. Diamondbacks Final Score: Home Runs Beat Aaron Harang 7-2

A pair of home runs allowed by Aaron Harang spelled doom for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night, as they dropped their series opener to the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2 at Dodger Stadium. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Dodgers.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run home run in the first inning to give Arizona a 3-0 lead just four batters into the game. Harang was playing with fire for most of the night, as he allowed eight runners to reach base in the first three innings. Three more reached base in the fifth inning, and Chris Johnson sent them all home with a grand slam for a 7-0 lead.

It was the ninth home run of the season for Johnson, and his first as a Diamondback, in his first game with Arizona. Johnson, who was acquired on Sunday from the Houston Astros, was activated before Monday's game, and first baseman Lyle Overbay was designated for assignment.

Harang was done after five innings after allowing a season worst seven runs, and suffered his sixth loss of the season (7-6).

Trevor Cahill (9-9) allowed one run in six innings for Arizona to pick up the win for Arizona.

In his first home game as a Dodger, Hanley Ramirez went 0-for-4, the first time in six games with his new team that he didn't collect a hit or score a run.

Chris Capuano takes the mound for the Dodgers in the second game of the series on Tuesday night, facing Wade Miley for the Diamondbacks in a battle of left-handers.
