July 8, 2012 at 7:27 PM

PHOENIX, July 8 (UPI) -- Trevor Bauer fired six shutout innings to collect his first major league win Sunday and the Arizona Diamondbacks pounded the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1.

Bauer (1-1), the Diamondbacks' third overall pick from UCLA in last year's draft, hamstrung the Dodgers while making only this third major league start.

The right-hander yielded only two hits and one walk, and struck out six while retiring the final 12 Los Angeles batters he faced.

Patrick Corbin finished with three innings of one-run relief to notch his first career save for Arizona, which took three wins in its four-game series with the Dodgers.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and four RBI, while Justin Upton added three hits, including a run-scoring triple, and scored three times in the victory.

Dodgers starter Chris Capuano (9-4) was tagged for five runs on nine hits in a five-inning effort.

Juan Uribe got the only RBI for first-place Los Angeles, which dropped its third straight but still hung onto a half-game lead over San Francisco in the National League West entering the All-Star Game break.
