    Three-run seventh lifts Arizona

    PHOENIX (AP) -- Danny Bautista hit a go-ahead single during a three-run rally in the seventh inning that carried the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5 Sunday.

    Adrian Beltre increased his home-run total to 14 with a pair of solo drives for the Dodgers, who lost for only the second time in eight games.

    Los Angeles led 4-2 in the seventh, helped by two errors that led to two unearned runs.

    Chad Tracy led off with a walk against Darren Dreifort (1-1) and scored on Robby Hammock's double. Alex Cintron sacrificed. and Carlos Baerga singled, tying the game.

    One out later, Tom Martin relieved and allowed a single to Steve Finley that moved pinch-runner Casey Fossum to second. Bautista then singled for a 5-4 lead.

    Hammock added another RBI double in the eighth against Guillermo Mota.

    Scott Service (1-0) got the final out of the seventh. Jose Valverde pitched 1 1-3 innings for his fourth save, escaping a bases-loaded, two-outs jam in the eighth by striking out pinch-hitter Paul Lo Duca -- only his 10th strikeout in 194 at-bats this season.

    Valverde gave up Beltre's second homer of the game in the ninth.

    Arizona's Steve Sparks gave up four runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings. while the Dodgers' Jeff Weaver allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings.

    Beltre homered in the second, and Cesar Izturis scored from first base in the third when third baseman Chad Tracy threw high and wide left of first base after fielding Milton Bradley's grounder.

    Luis Gonzalez hit an opposite-field, RBI double to left in the fourth after Finley, in a 1-for-14 skid, reached on a bunt single to third.

    Hammock's passed ball with Dave Roberts on first and a run-scoring throwing error by Spark on Shawn Green's weak roller along the first-base line made it 4-1 in the fifth.

    Finley hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth after Scott Hairston's triple.

    Game notes


    Beltre has six multihomer games, including two this season. ... The Dodgers' fifth could have been bigger if not for an unassisted double play by Tracy at third. He dived for a liner by Beltre and landed on third to double up Bradley. ... Izturis has his second 14-game hitting streak of the season. ... At 4-3, the Diamondbacks had their first winning homestand since going 4-2 against Pittsburgh and the Chicago Cubs from April 23-28.
