LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Paul Goldschmidt homered twice, including a tie-breaking shot for the second straight game, lifting the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 3-2 victory over the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.

The D-backs completed a three-game sweep of the Dodgers, who have dropped a season-high seven straight games.

Goldschmidt homered to left field in the eighth with two outs. He also hit a two-run shot off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the sixth.

Wade Miley (3-1) outlasted Kershaw in a matchup of two of the best left-handed starters in the NL over the past two seasons.

Miley allowed two runs and seven hits in 7 2/3 innings, struck out four and walked none.

Heath Bell pitched the ninth to earn his third save in four chances.
