Justin Upton Keys Sixth Inning Rally As Dodgers Fall To Diamondbacks 6-4

The Diamondbacks used four walks and two hits to plate five runs in the sixth inning, picking up a 6-4 win over the Dodgers on Saturday night in the second game of a three-game set at Dodger Stadium. Justin Upton continued his hot hitting with a three-run double to cap the rally. The two clubs have split the first two games of this series.

Chad Billingsley had allowed one run through five innings, but a touch of wildness affected him in the fifth. After loading the bases with nobody out, Arizona was able to score two runs off Billingsley. After Billingsley issued his fourth walk of the inning, with two outs, to load the bases again, he was removed in favor of Matt Guerrier, who gave up the bases-clearing two-bagger to Upton.

Upton has at least one extra-base hit in each of his last 10 games, the longest such streak in MLB this year.

Matt Kemp was stellar  for the Dodgers, hitting a two-run home run to center field in the third inning to give the team a 3-1 lead. Earlier in the game, Kemp singled, stole a base, and scored the Dodgers' first run. It was the third time this season and 14th time in his career that Kemp had a home run and stolen base in the same game.
