The left-hander allowed eight runs in his short outing as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost 11-4 to Arizona in the finale of a three-game series at Chase Field. The Dodgers had their six-game winning streak come to an end.
Lilly allowed eight runs on nine hits and had five walks in his 3 1/3 innings. He suffered his first loss of the season, ending a string of eight straight wins dating back to last year. Lilly allowed a double, two triples, and a home run on the night.
Willie Bloomquist had three runs and scored three runs for Arizona, including his fourth triple of the year. Joe Saunders pitched into the seventh for his third win of the season for the Diamondbacks.
A.J. Ellis hit his fourth home run of the season for the Dodgers, and rookie Elian Herrera had two doubles from the leadoff position while playing his first game in center field.
