Stripling's arm, bat lead Dodgers to 5-2 win over D-backs
LOS ANGELES (AP) Ross Stripling and four relievers combined on a four-hitter and the rookie helped himself with a go-ahead single in the second inning, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night, their fourth straight win.
The NL West leaders remained a season-high four games ahead of San Francisco, which beat Colorado 3-2.
Stripling (4-6) allowed two runs and three hits in five innings. The right-hander struck out five and walked none.
Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth to earn his 42nd save in 48 chances in his 400th career appearance. He is two from tying his career high saves set two years ago.
The Dodgers produced most of their runs on singles a night after hitting five home runs off former teammate Zack Greinke in a 10-2 victory in the series opener. They had 11 hits.
