LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Johnson hit a grand slam in his first game with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Paul Goldschmidt hit a three run shot in the first inning — both off Aaron Harang — in a 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.
Trevor Cahill (9-9) allowed a run and six hits over six innings with four strikeouts and three walks. The right-hander, acquired from Oakland in a multiplayer trade last December, is 3-0 with a 1.85 ERA in four career starts against the Dodgers.
Johnson, acquired Sunday in a trade with Houston, started at third base and gave the D-backs a 7-0 lead with his second career slam. It followed a two-out intentional walk to lefty-swinging Miguel Montero, who was 8 for 15 lifetime against Harang at that point — and had reached base safely in 18 of his previous 24 plate appearances overall.
