LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joc Pederson hit a three-run homer, Christian Walker went deep and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3 on Tuesday night.

The Dodgers had their four-game winning streak snapped at home when they were outhit, 12-6.

Arizona’s Brandon Pfaadt (2-3) didn’t allow a hit until the fourth when Shohei Ohtani led off with a double. The Japanese superstar stole third – tearing his pants while sliding – and scored on catcher Gabriel Moreno’s throw that landed in left field. The unearned run left the Dodgers behind 2-1.

The Dodgers got to 4-3 with a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Miguel Vargas hit a leadoff double, took third on Mookie Betts’ flyout and scored on Ohtani’s RBI single to make it 4-2. Ohtani stole second after Freddie Freeman struck out and he scored on Will Smith’s RBI double to center.

Ohtani went 2 for 4 with a strikeout, scored twice, drove in a run and stole two bases. Betts was hitless in three at-bats with a walk on his bobblehead night.

Reliever Michael Grove walked Kevin Newman to open the seventh. After Corbin Carroll struckout, Ketel Marte singled to extend his hitting streak to 20 games and Pederson followed with a blast to the right field pavilion against his old team, making it 7-3.

Walker hit his 21st career homer against the Dodgers, starting from the sixth.

Pfaadt allowed three runs and four hits in six innings. The righthander struckout seven batters and walked one.

Dodgers starter Gavin Stone (4-2) gave up four consecutive singles in the first inning as the D-backs led 2-0 on RBI singles by Eugenio Suárez and Moreno.
