PHOENIX — Patrick Corbin shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers on one hit over 71/3 innings, striking out a career-high 12 in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 3-0 win on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks swept the three-game series and won their ninth straight game against the Dodgers, going back to a pair of three-game series sweeps last season. Corbin earned his first win over the Dodgers since 2013.

Corbin (2-0) retired 14 batters in a row to start the game, eight on strikeouts. The Dodgers struggled to make solid contact, and it took Matt Kemp’s bloop double with two outs in the fifth to break up Corbin’s no-hit bid.
