PHOENIX, April 17 (UPI) -- Brad Penny allowed just one run over seven innings Monday in pitching the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Penny's ERA is now 0.89 on the season as the right-hander has yielded only two runs in 20 1/3 innings.

Nomar Garciaparra homered and doubled to lead the Dodgers' offense. Juan Pierre and Andre Ethier each singled twice for Los Angeles, which has won five of its last six games.

Eric Byrnes and Carlos Quentin each hit two doubles for the Diamondbacks, who had won their last two games.

Arizona starter Edgar Gonzalez (1-1), surrendered five runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four.

Luis Gonzalez returned to Arizona for the first time since signing with the Dodgers. The outfielder received a standing ovation but went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts
