Friday, July 29, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Matt Kemp hit a three-run homer and a two-run single to power the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday.
Kemp's big night left him with an NL-best 80 RBIs, three more than Philadelphia slugger Ryan Howard. The All-Star center fielder now has seven career games with five or more RBIs, including June 4 at Cincinnati, when he drove in a career-high six runs in an 11-8 victory in 11 innings.
Ted Lilly (7-10) allowed three runs -- two earned -- and three hits in five innings for Los Angeles, surrendering solo homers by Ryan Roberts and Willie Bloomquist.
