PHOENIX — Matt Kemp homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers scored six runs in the fourth inning, thanks in large part to two overturned out calls, to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-5 on Tuesday night.

With the game tied at 2, the Dodgers hit five consecutive singles off Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (3-9) in the fourth. The Dodgers led 4-2 when A.J. Ellis singled to center field. The throw beat Carl Crawford to home plate, but an umpire initiated review on whether catcher Miguel Montero was blocking the plate led to the crew to see that the ball was in his other hand. The initial out call was overturned.

The next batter, pitcher Roberto Hernandez, was called out at first base on a bunt past the pitcher's mound. But Don Mattingly challenged that call and Hernandez was ruled safe, allowing Justin Turner to score on the play and make the score 6-2. A Dee Gordon single and sacrifice fly from Adrian Gonzalez brought in the last two runs of the inning.

Hernandez (8-9) made it through six innings and allowed three runs on six hits to improve to 2-1 with the Dodgers. Cahill was through after 3 1/3 innings, allowing six earned runs on six hits.

Inciarte finished with two hits and three runs batted in for the Diamondbacks. The Dodgers improved to 41-26 on the road — the best road record in the majors — and have won 11 of 15 games against the Diamondbacks this season.

Kemp's homer in the first gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.

ON DECK

Dodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw takes a 9-7 career record and 2.61 ERA against Arizona into Wednesday's start. Kershaw (15-3, 1.82 ERA) is 12-1 with a 1.30 ERA in his last 15 starts. He's 2-1 against the Diamondbacks this season but has given up nine earned runs in 15 1/3 innings.

Diamondbacks: LHP Wade Miley has a career high 157 strikeouts going into Wednesday's start. He's 7-9 on the year with a 4.29 ERA and is 3-4 with a 4.13 ERA in his career against the Dodgers. He's allowed three runs or less in eight of 11 career starts against L.A..

TRAINER'S ROOM

Dodgers: LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu threw a bullpen session before Tuesday's game, and after facing hitters on Wednesday in a more intense session could come off the disabled list for a start on Sunday at San Diego. Ryu is coming back from a right hip strain and has been on the DL since Aug. 15. If he doesn't get the start, Hernandez will take his place. LHP Paco Rodriguez (shoulder) also threw in the bullpen on Tuesday.

Diamondbacks: 1B Paul Goldschmidt had a CT scan on his broken left hand on Tuesday and will not need surgery. He'll start doing strengthening exercises in the next couple of weeks, Gibson said. Gibson is also hoping LHP Patrick Corbin can pitch again for the team next May or June. Corbin is on the 60-day DL after Tommy John surgery in March.
