Dodgers Continue to Surge

Article excerpt

PHOENIX -- Ricky Nolasco gave up four hits over seven innings in his Dodgers debut and surging Los Angeles beat the Diamondbacks 6-1 Tuesday night for its 14th victory in 17 games.

Nolasco (6-8), acquired Saturday in a trade with the Miami Marlins, also doubled and singled, driving in a run and scoring another.

Adrian Gonzalez drove in three runs for Los Angeles but Hanley Ramirez went 0 for 4, snapping his 19-game hitting streak.

Ian Kennedy (3-5), facing the Dodgers for the first time since serving a 10-game suspension for his role in a bench-clearing brawl a month ago in Los Angeles, allowed six runs, five earned, and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. He hit Ramirez with a pitch in the first inning.

The Dodgers pulled within 2 1/2 games of the NL West-leading Diamondbacks.

Seattle was just as potent early, with Kendrys Morales going deep twice, but couldn't solve the Red Sox bullpen.
