PHOENIX (AP) -- Patrick Corbin shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers on one hit over 7 1-3 innings, striking out a career-high 12 in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 3-0 win on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks swept the three-game series and won their ninth straight game against the Dodgers, going back to a pair of three-game series sweeps last season. Corbin earned his first win over the Dodgers since 2013.

Corbin (2-0) retired 14 batters in a row to start the game, eight on strikeouts. The Dodgers struggled to make solid contact, and it took Matt Kemp's bloop double with two outs in the fifth to break up Corbin's no-hit bid.

Kemp had the Dodgers' only hit of the game.

Corbin was taken out after walking Kemp with one out in the eighth inning, and walked to the dugout to a standing ovation.

Brad Boxberger earned his second save with a scoreless ninth. The Dodgers had only four base runners, two in the ninth on Boxberger walks.

The Diamondbacks scored a run in each of the first three innings.

In the first, leadoff man Jarrod Dyson doubled past drawn-in first baseman Kike Hernandez, took third on a groundout and scored on Paul Goldschmidt's groundout.

Chris Owings led off the second with a double, stole third with one out and scored on Devin Marrero's sacrifice fly.

Arizona began each of the first three innings with a leadoff double, including Corbin's in the third.

Corbin was sacrificed to third and scored on Ketel Marte's single.

Wood, who allowed only one hit in eight innings against San Francisco in his first start of the season on March 30, gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. He struck out five in his first loss of the season.
