PHOENIX (AP) - Paul Goldschmidt homered and the Arizona Diamondbacks blew the game open late to prevent Los Angeles from clinching the NL West title with a 9-4 victory over the Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Goldschmidt's opposite-field two-run shot off Stephen Fife (4-4) in the first inning moved him into the NL lead with 34 home runs.
Yasiel Puig hit a solo home run calculated at 442 feet for the Dodgers, who have lost five of six and get one more chance to clinch in Arizona in the series finale Thursday.
The Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez was ejected after Michael Young was called out at the plate in a close play in the sixth inning.
Brandon McCarthy (5-9) went six-plus innings to get the victory. Arizona broke open a close game with five runs in the eighth.
