Bauer Gets 1st Major League Victory As DBacks Beat Dodgers
PHOENIX (CBS) – Trevor Bauer went six scoreless innings, striking out six Dodgers en route to his first career win as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1 on Sunday afternoon.
Bauer, the third overall pick in the 2011 first-year player draft out of UCLA, won his first major league game; he needed 96 pitches to get through six.
The 21-year-old attended Hart High School before becoming a Bruin.
Paul Goldschmidt homered and drove in a career-high four runs and Justin Upton was a homer short of the cycle for the Diamondbacks.
Chris Capuano (9-4) allowed a season-high five runs on nine hits over five innings for the Dodgers, who remained a half-game ahead of the San Francisco Giants heading into the All Star break. Los Angeles had not led the division at the break since 2009.
