LOS ANGELES (AP) – Madison Baumgarner threw six innings from one ball, giving the former World Series best player his first win in nearly two months, as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-1 on Wednesday night.

Baumgarner (7-15) beat the Dodgers for the first time as a Diamondback and for the first time since September 23, 2017, when he was with San Francisco.

The left-handed retired the first nine players and 13 of the first 14 players he faced at the start of his 40th career against the Dodgers. He gave up one round, hit five, and walked into one win in his first win since July 23 against Washington.

Baumgarner allowed only two key players.

Corbin Carroll doubled in three runs and led Christian Walker in two more rounds for Arizona, which also advanced 5-1 on Monday only to pool the Dodgers in eighth and win 6-5.

This time, the Dodgers had no comeback in it.

Carson Kelly doubled ahead of the fourth. Geraldo Peromo hit and Dustin May (2-3) hit Dalton Farcho to load the bases. Created by Carol, who doubled to the far left. Farshaw nearly grabbed Piromo as they raced around third base giving Arizona a 5-0 lead.

Linebacker D extended their lead to 6-1 on the fly by Emmanuel Rivera in the seventh. Jake McCarthy scored after taking a knockout, finished second on Walker grounds and went to third on the pitch of Tommy Canley Wild.

Walker led in the first two rounds of Arizona in a similar fashion, giving him 86 RBIs on the season. He had a broken bat at 99mph from May on the first hit and one on the third. Both hits came from Walker to the same spot with two wins and a record for runners earned by walking.

Mookie Betts picked up a 0-for-10 sled with Homer #35 in fourth for the Dodgers.

Tria Turner performed a slow ball to third base off Mark Melancon to strike the Dodgers’ second hit in the game in the ninth, extending his hitting streak to 18 games. Freddy Freeman followed it up with a single for a third hit before the Arizona defense concluded the win with a double play.

May has struggled throughout his sixth start since returning from Tommy John’s surgery. The right-hander gave up five runs and seven strokes in the low season in four innings. Hit four and walked two. He has thrown twice as many pitches as Bumgarner during the first three innings.
