PHOENIX (AP) - Hyun-Jin Ryu struck out nine in six innings, getting his first three major league hits in the process, and the Los Angeles Dodgers held off the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-5 Saturday night.
Adrian Gonzalez went 3 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs as the Dodgers stopped a six-game losing streak in Arizona dating to last season. Matt Kemp singled in two runs, Skip Schumaker had an RBI double and Andre Ethier singled in a run for Los Angeles.
The Dodgers led 6-1 after six innings but Arizona tried to rally behind pinch-hit RBIs from Eric Hinske, Eric Chavez and Aaron Hill, and a home run by Martin Prado.
Ryu (2-1) allowed three runs and six hits. The South Korean left-hander singled twice and doubled.
