Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with two home runs, including the go-ahead blast in the eighth inning, as the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2, to complete a three-game sweep at Dodger Stadium.

Goldschmidt, who has homered in three straight games, also had a two-run shot in the sixth for the D'backs, winners in four of their last five games.

Wade Miley (3-1) allowed two runs and scattered seven hits over 7 2/3 innings to earn the win. He struck out four without issuing a walk to earn his first win since April 10. Heath Bell gave up a leadoff double in the ninth, but recorded the next three outs to earn his third save.

Nick Punto and Adrian Gonzalez both had RBI doubles for the Dodgers, who have dropped a season-high seven straight games.

Kenley Jansen (1-1) was charged with the loss after giving up Goldschmidt's second homer of the game

Starter Clayton Kershaw was plagued by a lack of run support once again. The 2011 NL Cy Young Award winner gave up just two runs -- one earned -- on five hits over seven innings. Over eight starts this season, Kershaw has received an average of just 2.38 runs per game from the Dodgers' offense.
