Dodgers ride Wood's pitching to 1-0 win over D-Backs

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Alex Wood pitched three-hit ball over seven innings to start the season 10-0 and the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers beat the second-place Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 on Wednesday night.

Wood became the first Dodgers starter to reach 10-0 since Don Newcombe in 1955, when the Brooklyn Dodgers won the first of the franchise's six World Series championships.

The 26-year-old left-hander hasn't lost since May 30, 2016 -- a span of 13 consecutive starts. Wood struck out 10 and walked two.

Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 20th save in as many chances. He put the potential tying run on with a two-out single to Brandon Drury before striking out Chris Herrmann to end the game.

Arizona's Zack Godley (3-3) gave up one run and three hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Yasmani Grandal's RBI double to deep center field in the second scored Chris Taylor from first base.
