Butch Goring Jersey . Goldschmidts opposite-field two-run shot off Stephen Fife (4-4) in the first inning moved him into the NL lead with 34 home runs. Yasiel Puig hit a solo home run calculated at 442 feet for the Dodgers, who have lost five of six and get one more chance to clinch in Arizona in the series finale Thursday. The Dodgers Adrian Gonzalez was ejected after Michael Young was called out at the plate in a close play in the sixth inning. Brandon McCarthy (5-9) went six-plus innings to get the victory. Arizona broke open a close game with five runs in the eighth. Tim Federowicz drove in two runs with a home run and RBI double. McCarthy gave up two runs, scattering 10 hits in six-plus innings. Arizona led just 4-3 before blowing the game open against Belisario, the Dodgers sixth pitcher of the night. Adam Eaton had a two-run single, Aaron Hill and Martin Prado each an RBI double and Chris Owings walked with the bases loaded. Fife got the start in place of Clayton Kershaw, whose outing was pushed back three days to Saturdays game at San Diego to give him some extra late-season rest. Fife never made it out of the third, giving up a two-run homer to Goldschmidt in the first and a two more runs in the third as Arizona took a 4-0 lead. He allowed four runs on six hits in 2 1-3 innings, walking two and hitting two batters. Gonzalez was tossed by second base umpire Andy Fletcher in the top of the sixth inning after Michael Young attempted to score from first on Gonzalezs double. Young was called out by first base umpire Jim Joyce, catcher Miguel Montero taking shortstop Chris Owings relay throw and put down the tag although replays showed Youngs hand appeared to touch the plate first. Puig opened the game with a ground-rule double but was picked off by Montero after wandering too far off second. He atoned for it with a soaring home run far above the 413-foot sign in left-centre to lead off the fourth. The Dodgers added a run later in the inning on consecutive singles by Carl Crawford, Young and Gonzalez to cut Arizonas lead to 4-2. Los Angeles pulled within one, 4-3, in the seventh when Nick Punto led off with a single and scored from third on Federowiczs double down the left field line. Federowicz advanced to third with one out on Skip Schumakers sacrifice bunt but was stranded when pinch hitter Scott Van Slyke grounded into a double play. The Diamondbacks stranded 14 runners, leaving the bases loaded three times. Eaton hustled on what should have been a single to Puig in right and turned it into a double to start the Arizona first. After one out, Goldschmidt sent a 3-2 pitch to the opposite field for a two-run home run. Arizonas third run scored after Fife hit Montero with a pitch to start the third inning. Matt Davidsons single advanced runner to third, then Montero scored when Parra bounced into a fielders choice. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly tried to make a pitching change but was chased back to the dugout by home plate umpire Joe West because pitching coach Rick Honeycutt already had visited the mound in the same at-bat. Fife went on to walk McCarthy on four pitches to load the bases. Carlos Marmol relieved Fife and promptly walked Eaton to bring in a run and make it 4-0. Notes: Goldschmidts 34 home runs tie him with Steve Finley for seventh on the Arizona career list. ... In the last meeting of the teams this season, the Dodgers send RHP Ricky Nolasco (13-10, 3.36 ERA) to the mound Monday while LHP Wade Miley (10-10, 3.70). ...

I come from money, Im not going to deny that, but I believe Ive earned my shot in F1 because Ive won every championship that Ive competed in.Now the FIA have put in superlicence [points] for just that reason, so people cant just buy their way into F1. You actually have to prove yourself and win in the junior categories. Williams also moved to deny the decision to hand Stroll a race seat was decided by the money he could bring to the team.

I feel we still have a lot to achieve together, we havent yet achieved what we could, said the Finn.I currently have a stat which I have the most points scored in F1 without a win, which I hate, and so it would be nice to change that.
