Billingsley, Dodgers Fall To Diamondbacks 5-1
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wade Miley wiggled out of a couple jams while pitching into the seventh inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers’ five-game winning streak with a 5-1 victory Tuesday night.
Miley (4-1) yielded eight hits and walked one in 6 2-3 innings, but managed to limit Los Angeles to just one run on Mark Ellis’ homer. The 25-year-old left-hander is 3-1 with a 2.35 ERA in five starts since being inserted into the rotation on April 23 to replace Daniel Hudson, whose right shoulder impingement won’t allow him to return until May 27 at the earliest.
Ellis finished with three hits in the Dodgers’ first game since star center fielder Matt Kemp went on the 15-day disabled list because of a left hamstring strain.
