The first game Down Under turned out to be a real Downer for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the D’backs 3-1 behind a strong 6 2/3 innings effort by Clayton Kershaw. Wade Miley took the loss going five innings and allowing three runs on three hits, walking two and striking out eight. Scott Van Slyke struck the big blow, a two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning.
