Sports Minute: Here is the latest Arizona sports news from The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) - Chris Iannetta homered twice and drove in a career-high eight runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks outslugged the Miami Marlins 13-11 on Friday night. J.D. Martinez and Christian Walker also homered for the Diamondbacks, who can clinch their first postseason berth in six years with a win Saturday and losses by St. Louis and Milwaukee. Arizona erased a 9-7 deficit with five runs in the sixth.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched their fifth straight NL West title, beating the San Francisco Giants 4-2 on Friday night as Cody Bellinger set an NL rookie record with his 39th home run. Los Angeles will open the NL Division Series at home on Oct. 6. The Dodgers are seeking to reach the World Series for the first time since 1988 under manager Tommy Lasorda, who was on hand at Dodger Stadium to celebrate his 90th birthday.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Chris Hart recovered Brandon Dawkins' fumble at the Utah 20-yard line with 2:33 to play to preserve No. 23 Utah's 30-24 over Arizona Friday night in the Pac-12 opener for both schools. The Wildcats (2-2) committed five turnovers, including three interceptions thrown by Dawkins. Arizona twice cut the lead to three, the last time at 20-17 on J.J. Taylor's 7-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - A little over a year ago, Oregon unceremoniously fell from the national rankings after years of being rated among the nation's best. Now, after a 3-0 start in nonconference play, the Ducks are back at No. 24 heading into their Pac-12 opener at Arizona State. ASU (1-2) has stumbled out of the gate with losses to San Diego State and Texas Tech after a narrow win over New Mexico State. The Ducks have beaten Arizona State 10 straight times.
