The Dodgers followed a similar script on Tuesday night, just on a smaller scale. But the result was pretty much the same with their second straight loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, 8-2 at Dodger Stadium.
On Monday, Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run home run in the first and Chris Johnson hit a grand slam in the fifth.
On Tuesday, Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run home run in the first and Miguel Montero hit a three-run homer in the sixth.
Goldschmidt was 3-for-4 with a walk on Tuesday. With any luck, the Dodgers can hold him to a solo home run on Wednesday afternoon.
All those runs made a winner out of Wade Miley, who didn't need much support. The National League All-Star won his 12th game of the season, allowing one run in eight innings, striking out seven with just one walk.
It was the second time this season Chris Capuano has allowed multiple home runs in a game, and the eighth such game by a Dodgers starter this season. The Dodgers are 2-6 in those games.
In Capuano's last five starts he has allowed 23 runs (19 earned) on 39 hits in 29 innings for a 5.90 ERA, with 17 walks and 24 strikeouts.
Arizona tacked on three more runs in the eighth inning off Jamey Wright and Ronald Belisario. In his last 11 outings, Belisario has allowed at least one run in seven games.
The Dodgers have lost seven of their 11 games against Arizona this season.
In minors news, infielder Justin Sellers went 1-for-3 with a double as the designated hitter in his first of three scheduled rehab games with Class A Rancho Cucamonga.
