LOS ANGELES (AP) Paul Goldschmidt homered after Yasmany Tomas and Aaron Hill gave the Diamondbacks the lead with longballs off Brett Anderson, and Arizona beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-4 Monday night.
The Dodgers' loss in the opener of this four-game series kept their magic number for clinching a third straight NL West title at seven, with second-place San Francisco idle.
Jhoulys Chacin (1-1) allowed two runs, six hits and four walks over 5 1-3 innings in his fourth start for the Diamondbacks, one day after they were mathematically eliminated from postseason contention. The seven-year veteran right-hander posted his first win in the majors since June 12, 2014, with Colorado.
The Diamondbacks' bullpen came up big in the sixth after Chacin walked two batters and was pulled with one out. Andrew Chafin struck out pinch-hitter Scott Van Slyke and David Hernandez fanned pinch-hitter Scott Schebler.
