Clayton Kershaw had a two-run lead in the sixth inning on Friday night, but a five-run rally turned the tied, as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost 5-3 to the Arizona Diamondbacks to snap their three-game winning streak.
Justin Upton hit a two-run triple to give Arizona their first lead of the night, one of four consecutive hits off Kershaw in the definitive sixth frame. Up to that point, Kershaw (6-5) had allowed just one hit and one walk in five innings, with six strikeouts.
The Dodgers scored a pair of runs off Arizona starter Josh Collmenter (1-2), including Adam Kennedy's first home run of the season, but that was all. They put at least two runners on base in each of the final three innings but could only add one run.
J.J. Putz allowed two hits in the ninth inning but retired the side for his 15th save of the season.
Chad BIllingsley starts for the Dodgers on Saturday, facing Trevor Cahill for Arizona.
