LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andre Ethier and Jimmy Rollins hit three-run homers and Howie Kendrick had three hits in his return to the starting lineup, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 9-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night.
Mike Bolsinger (4-1) allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings, striking out eight and walking two after getting staked to a 9-0 lead. Ender Inciarte’s fourth-inning single was the only hit against the right-hander until the sixth, when he gave up a leadoff walk to Nick Ahmed, a one-out infield hit by Inciarte and a two-run double by A.J. Pollock.
Pollock’s hit snapped Bolsinger’s season-opening string of 24 consecutive scoreless innings at Dodger Stadium.
Rubby De La Rosa (2-3) gave up nine runs and 10 hits over five innings in a matchup of pitchers going up against the teams they originally signed big league contracts with.
