MLB: Arizona 8, Milwaukee 2

By

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Adam LaRoche, Miguel Montero, Mark Reynolds and Stephen Drew hit consecutive solo homers Wednesday in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 8-2 win over Milwaukee.

Milwaukee's Dave Bush became the third pitcher in major league history to give up four straight home runs -- joining Chase Wright of the New York Yankees (2007) and Paul Foytack of the Los Angeles Angels (1963).

The home runs came in a span of 10 pitches of the fourth inning and helped the Diamondbacks win for the sixth time in seven games.

Arizona rallied from a 2-0 deficit with the sudden home run outburst and added four more runs in the sixth, three of them scoring on a bases-loaded double by pitcher Daniel Hudson.

Hudson (3-0) worked seven innings, struck out nine and won his third straight start since being obtained in a trade with the Chicago White Sox last month. He gave up two runs on seven hits.

Bush (5-10) was touched for seven runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.
