Corey Seager and Trea Turner both reached 100 career home runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers shut out the Arizona Diamondbacks, 3-0, to take the rubber match of their weekend series at Chase Field.

The Dodgers not only took the series to finish out their final road trip of the season but they kept pace with the San Francisco Giants and remain two games back for first place in the National League West.

With the Dodgers coming off a flat loss, Seager provided an early boost with an opposite-field home run in the first inning. Turner followed that by ambushing the first pitch he saw for a line-drive homer.

Then in the third inning, Seager went to the pull side for a career-long 464-foot solo home run that extended the Dodgers’ lead to 3-0. He and Turner became the first teammates to hit their 100th career home run in the same game since Jay Gibbons and Melvin Mora on Sept. 27, 2005.

Julio Urias pitched with a fastball velocity that was down for a third consecutive start but he navigated through traffic to complete five scoreless innings. He earned an MLB-best 19th win of the season and remains within reach of getting 20, which Urias said would be a “dream come true.”

Other than a double to Daulton Varsho in the first inning, Urias didn’t not allow hard contact throughout his start. Th Diamondbacks’ biggest threat came when an infield single, high chopper that went over Max Muncy’s head and a fielder’s choice loaded the bases with one out in third.

Urias wiggled out of the jam by inducing a fly ball and getting David Peralta swinging. He then stranded a one-out single in the fourth before retiring the side in order in the fifth inning for the first and only time of the day.

Dodgers record

The Dodgers reached 100 wins for the ninth time in franchise history, and third time in the past five seasons. Should they sweep both three-game series against the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers, they would tie the franchise record for most wins in a single season, set by the 2019 team.
