LOS ANGELES (AP) - Trevor Cahill pitched seven strong innings and drove in Arizona's first two runs with his first major league triple, and the Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2 on Monday night.
Paul Goldschmidt and Cody Ross hit consecutive homers in the fourth after a glaring error by left fielder Carl Crawford, helping Arizona to just its second win in the last seven games.
Cahill (2-3) allowed two runs and six hits, struck out two and walked three. The right-hander is 5-0 in eight career starts against the Dodgers with a 2.10 ERA, his lowest against any opponent.
Los Angeles' Chris Capuano (0-2) was charged with six runs - five earned - and eight hits in four-plus innings.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Cliff Lee shut down the Giants once again with eight strong innings, Michael Young hit a two-run double among his three hits, and the Philadelphia Phillies stopped San Francisco's season-best six-game winning streak with a 6-2 victory Monday night.
Domonic Brown hit a solo home run and Delmon Young and Jimmy Rollins each added sacrifice flies as the Phillies began a seven-game trip.
Lee (3-2) outpitched fellow southpaw Madison Bumgarner and kept intact his perfect career regular-season record against the Giants.
Hunter Pence hit a solo homer, double and single against his former club. His sixth homer of the season, in the second inning, snapped a 21-inning scoreless stretch by Lee against San Francisco.
Lee is 5-0 with a 0.88 ERA in six regular-season starts against the Giants, including 4-0 with a 0.84 ERA in five of those outings at AT&T Park.
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Andrew Cashner pitched 7 1-3 innings of four-hit ball and the San Diego Padres beat the Miami Marlins 5-0 on Monday night.
Cashner (2-2) struck out four and walked three in the longest outing of his career. Dale Thayer finished the five-hitter in front of a season-low crowd of 14,596 at Petco Park.
Miami was shut out for the fifth time this season, tying Atlanta and Philadelphia for most in the majors. The Marlins are last in the league with a .226 team batting average and 98 runs this season.
