Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Goldschmidt finished 4-for-5 with a pair of home runs and six RBI as Arizona's offense exploded for an 18-7 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday in the middle game of a three-game series.
The Diamondbacks set franchise records for runs scored, hits in a nine-inning game (21) and extra-base hits (13).
Martin Prado added three hits and drove in three and Cliff Pennington contributed two RBI for the Diamondbacks, who snapped a two-game slide.
Chris Owings, A.J. Pollock and Eric Chavez each added a solo homer, with Pollock posting four hits and three runs scored and Owings totaling three hits and crossing the plate four times.
Chase Anderson (2-0) did enough to snag the win, allowing seven hits and five runs over 5 1/3 innings.
Carl Crawford hit a three-run homer and Yasiel Puig added a two-run blast for the Dodgers, who surrendered a season high run total in losing for the sixth time in their last 10. Andre Ethier knocked in two in defeat.
Clayton Kershaw (2-1) was rocked for six hits and seven runs while recording only five outs, the second-shortest start of his career.
Once down 7-0 and 9-2, the Dodgers closed within 9-7 in the sixth thanks to Crawford's three-run blast with Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp aboard, followed by Ethier's pinch-hit two run double after Juan Uribe singled and A.J. Ellis reached on an error.
Prado put the D-Backs into double digits by doubling home Goldschmidt in the home half, and Goldschmidt's three-run blast to left in the seventh along with Parra's RBI double extended the hosts' edge to 14-7.
Chavez and Pollock went back-to-back with one out in the eighth and Arizona held a 16-7 edge. Owings followed with a double then Goldschmidt launched his second homer of the game to produce the winning margin.
Arizona jumped in front with seven runs in the second, giving Anderson a generous cushion.
Cody Ross worked a leadoff walk, Prado singled him to third, then Pennington tripled home a pair two batters later and Tuffy Gosewisch singled for a 3-0 game. Anderson sacrificed Gosewisch to second, and Pollock followed with a run-scoring triple. Owings added another triple to make it 5-0, then Goldshmidt doubled in Owings before a balk moved him to third.
Ross walked and Kershaw was finally lifted for Jamey Wright, who served up Prado's RBI single before retiring Alfredo Marte on a fielder's choice grounder.
Los Angeles responded in the third on Puig's two-run blast, which came after Dee Gordon worked a one-out walk, but Owings' shot to commence the last of the fourth gave the hosts an 8-2 edge. The lead grew to 9-2 after Goldshmidt walked, Ross singled and Prado's fielder's choice grounder brought in Goldschmidt.
