LOS ANGELES, Calif. - With three straight losses hanging over his head and chatter that he should be shut down for the season, Patrick Corbin tuned it all out. The left-hander allowed one run in 6 1-3 innings and got balanced offensive support in the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. The victory moved the D-backs above .500 at 73-72, and gave them an 8-7 lead in the season series with Los Angeles, which will play at Arizona next week. Paul Goldschmidt went 4 for 5, tying his career high for hits, and drove in a pair of runs as the D-backs snapped a five-game skid against the Dodgers and avoided a series sweep. Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said Goldschmidt would be his favourite to win NL MVP honours. "He carried that team when they fought through injuries and didnt really have a presence in the middle of the lineup," Ellis said. "To do what hes done from an RBI standpoint and a home run standpoint, and with the other things he does — great defence, great base runner — hes one of the more underrated complete players in all of baseball." Goldschmidt had his second four-hit game and ninth multi-hit effort against the Dodgers this season, raising his average to .379 with three doubles, four homers and 16 RBI in 15 games. Corbin (14-6) improved to 2-0 in three starts at Dodger Stadium. He allowed one run and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings, striking out two and walking two. "I wanted to push him as far as I could. Its good for his development," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "Has he thrown better games? Yes, but he has a way to hanging in there." In Corbins last four starts against Los Angeles dating to Aug. 1, 2012, he is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA. "I got out of a lot of jams. Its not a good way to pitch," he said. "I feel fresh. I just want to finish the season strong." Brad Ziegler pitched the ninth to earn his 10th save in 12 chances. Hyun-Jin Ryu (13-6) gave up three runs and 10 hits — his second-most this season — while striking out one and walking none in his first start since Aug. 30. The left-hander missed his scheduled start last Friday because of a stiff back. "He got off to a little bit of a shaky start and they didnt miss any of the mistakes he threw the first couple of innings and were able to capitalize on that," Ellis said. "But then he settled down and did what we ask all of our pitchers to do, keep us in the game and give us a chance to win." Willie Bloomquist was 3 for 5 with a run scored for Arizona. A.J. Pollock and Tuffy Gosewisch both were 2 for 4 with a run scored. Arizona took a 2-0 lead in the first on Goldschmidts RBI single, the third in a row given up by Ryu to open the game, and Martin Prados double-play groundout. Gosewischs RBI double in the second made it 3-0. Goldschmidts RBI single off Brian Wilson in the seventh scored Gosewisch, who doubled off Brandon League, extending Arizonas lead to 4-0. "We got a deep lineup," Goldschmidt said. "A lot of guys contribute. Thats what its going to take for us to win." Los Angeles got its only run on Yasiel Puigs 16th homer, a towering shot into the Dodgers bullpen in left, in the seventh. Notes: The Dodgers turned four double plays. ... The Dodgers selected the contract of LHP Onelki Garcia from Triple-A Albuquerque and transferred RHP Shawn Tolleson to the 60-day DL. Garcia, who made his major league debut in the ninth, is expected to provide extra protection in the bullpen for leftys Paco Rodriguez and J.P. Howell. ... Corbin needs one start for 30 and three innings to reach 200, which would make him the youngest D-backs lefty in club history to do so. ... The 12th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks was marked by a moment of silence, a helicopter flyover and first responders lined up on the first and third base lines during pre-game ceremonies.
