PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks jumped on one of baseballs best pitchers early and kept bashing, knocking off records along the way. Not a bad way to show off for their new Hall of Fame executive. Paul Goldschmidt homered twice, had a career-high six RBIs and set a team record with five runs scored, helping the Diamondbacks bash the Los Angeles Dodgers 18-7 on Saturday night in their first game since hiring Tony La Russa. "We hadnt really broken out this year and tonight we did," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "Anybody they threw at us, we were patient, got good pitches to hit and hammered them." Hoping to shake out of an early season funk, the Diamondbacks announced before the game that they had hired La Russa as their chief baseball officer. Once it started, Arizona showed off its offensive capabilities by beating up on Clayton Kershaw (2-1), scoring seven runs in the second inning against the two-time Cy Young Award winner. The Dodgers came storming back with a five-run sixth to pull within 9-7, but Arizona kept hitting to set team records for runs, hits in a nine-inning game (21), extra-base hits (13) and triples in an inning (3 in the second). Goldschmidt was the catalyst, hitting a three-run homer in the seventh inning, a two-run shot in the eighth and adding two doubles to finish 4 for 5. Chris Owings finished a single shy of the cycle, Martin Prado had three RBIs and Chase Anderson (2-0) pitched into the sixth inning for Arizona. A.J. Pollock and Eric Chavez also homered, helping the Diamondbacks emphatically end a seven-game home losing streak to Los Angeles. "It was nice because we hadnt been scoring much lately, this entire year," Goldschmidt said. "Weve had better at-bats lately and tonight was a really, really good effort." The Dodgers tried to keep up even after the second-shortest outing of Kershaws career. Yasiel Puig hit a two-run homer to set one Dodgers record, tie another and stretch his hitting streak to 16 games. Carl Crawford also hit a three-run homer and the Dodgers had 13 hits. They just couldnt seem to keep the Diamondbacks from racing around the bases, going through five pitchers before turning to catcher Drew Butera to pitch in the eighth inning. "We just paid for our mistakes tonight," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "Give them a lot of credit they swung the bats extremely well. Anytime we were in the middle of the plate, they didnt miss it. That is what good teams do. That is a good team over there." Kershaw was solid in two starts off the disabled list and looked good in the first inning against the Diamondbacks, striking out two. It quickly fell apart in the second inning. Arizona followed Kershaws second walk of the season by pounding baseballs to the gaps, including three triples and a double. Cliff Pennington had the first triple, driving in two runs, then Pollock and Owings followed with run-scoring triples. Goldschmidt added a run-scoring double and Tuffy Gosewich and Prado had RBI singles, chasing Kershaw after 1 2-3 innings. Kershaw allowed seven runs -- three more than his season total -- and six hits, with three strikeouts, two walks and a balk. "Its kind of shocking anytime he has an inning like that," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "You expect him to go seven or eight (innings) and give up two or three runs or less. If you can score you have a good chance of winning. Its definitely not the norm with him." Anderson won his major league debut against the Chicago White Sox last Sunday, but wasnt quite as sharp against the Dodgers. Puig hit the first pitch he saw in the third inning well over the wall in left-centre, the team-record eighth straight game he has had an extra-base hit and run batted in. Its the first such streak of nine games in the majors since Tampa Bays Evan Longoria did it in 2009. Puigs eight straight games with an RBI matched the team record held by four others, most recently Adrian Beltre in 2004. Anderson was lifted after giving up a three-run homer to Crawford and the Dodgers pulled within 9-7 on a two-run double by Andre Ethier off Evan Marshall. Anderson allowed five runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. "I had to battle pretty much from pitch 1 today, but the offence came through and put up a lot of runs," Anderson said. "Its nice when you have that." NOTES: Arizona 2B Aaron Hill was scratched from the lineup with a sore right shoulder. ... Puig has six homers and 21 RBIs during his hitting streak. ... The last team to have three triples in an inning was Houston in the first inning against Washington on April 19, 2012. ... Arizona RHP Josh Collmenter will start the series finale against the Dodgers. He is 1-0 with a 3.42 ERA in his last four starts. RHP Dan Haren, who pitched for the Diamondbacks from 2008-10, will pitch for the Dodgers after allowing three runs in seven innings. Tonny Vilhena Jersey . LA (SportsNetwork.

The former Toronto FC designated player played three of his 15 professional seasons with the team.Widnes captain Kevin Brown is hoping to impress new England coach Wayne Bennett close up when he goes up against his old club Wigan. The 31-year-old, who has been in the international wilderness for the last six years, was among a group of more than 30 players invited to attend a get-together with Bennett.Bennett is in the country on a whistle-stop trip from Australia and will be at the Select Security Stadium on Thursday, when Widnes clash with Wigan live on Sky Sports, casting his eye over potential candidates for the autumn Four Nations Series. Im desperate to play for England, Brown said. The door has been shut on me since 2010 for whatever reason, but I think theres a chance and its up to me now to perform.Touch wood I get a good run with injuries and I am confident I can produce some good form if I do. Shaun Wane and Matty Smith look ahead to the clash between Widnes and Wigan We had a get-together on Monday night when Wayne spoke to us about a few things. Its just exciting being in the same room as Wayne Bennett.Youre like a sponge, trying to soak up everything he says. You are hanging on every word because of what hes done in the game.The room was packed with great players and some young players as well. Its exciited me and hopefully I can be part of it at the end of the year.ddddddddddddBrown made his England debut as a Huddersfield player under Steve McNamara against France six years ago and went on the 2010 Four Nations tour Down Under, but was subsequently ignored.The stand-off has never given up hope of a recall, but insists he is not expecting any favours from his club coach Denis Betts, who has been appointed as Bennetts right-hand man.Denis is a great coach who obviously knows what I can do and hes seen it up close, but he wont be biased because I play in his team, I know that for a fact, Brown said. Highlights of Widnes Vikings victory over Castleford Tigers last week Ive already spoken to him about that and hes said its up to me to force Waynes hand rather than hoping I can get picked because of my head coach.Im not going to try any harder or over-play on Thursday. Im going to put the team first and just do the job that I normally do.Watch Widnes v Wigan from 7.30pm this Thursday, live on Sky Sports 1 Also See: Super League fixtures Super League table Rugby League on Sky Follow us @SkySportsRL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
