LOS ANGELES -- Juan Uribe homered in each of his first three trips to the plate, and the Los Angeles Dodgers connected six times Monday night in an 8-1 romp over the Arizona Diamondbacks that reduced their magic number for clinching the NL West title to eight.

Adrian Gonzalez, Andre Ethier and Hanley Ramirez also went deep in the Dodgers' biggest power display in almost seven years.

Ricky Nolasco (13-9) won his seventh straight decision over eight starts as the Dodgers scored their first seven runs on the long ball.

Uribe beat out an infield single to third base in the seventh against Heath Bell to drive in the Dodgers' final run, capping his first four hit game since April 23, 2001, against Atlanta.
