PHOENIX -- Trevor Bauer scattered two hits over six scoreless innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1 on Sunday.

Paul Goldschmidt homered, doubled and drove in a career-high four runs and Justin Upton was a homer short of the cycle for the Diamondbacks, who won the final three games of the four-game set to move within four games of the NL West-leading Dodgers.

Bauer (1-1) struck out six, walked one and retired the final 12 batters he faced. Patrick Corbin pitched the final three innings for his first career save.

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.
