The Dodgers faced a busy news morning, but didn’t follow it up with a busy enough offense, falling to Arizona, 10-4.

Adam Jones took Dennis Santana deep with a leadoff home run, but he quickly turned the inning around by striking out the next three batters.

The second inning was a little shaky for Santana, when he gave up a bases-loaded single to Jones to make the score 3-0.

Santana replaced Tony Gonsolin as the starter on Friday afternoon and would exit the game after the third inning, allowing a total of three hits, three earned runs and earning five strikeouts in the loss.

The Dodgers housed a total of seven minor league pitchers on the mound against Arizona and the Diamondbacks scored off of four of them to earn a total of 10 runs.

The minor league pitchers were backed by a major league lineup, but they wouldn’t score enough to reach the division rivals.

Justin Turner hit a solo home run to contribute to the scoring and to keep his hot streak going.

Also with a home run on Friday afternoon was Jeren Kendall.
