PHOENIX -- Finally, the Arizona Diamondbacks won a series at home. Cody Ross hit his first home run of the year, Eric Chavez went deep for the second consecutive day and the Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Sunday for their first series win at Chase Field all season. After setting a team record for runs Saturday night in an 18-5 rout, the Diamondbacks broke a 3-all tie with Chavezs two-run shot off Dan Haren (5-2) in the fifth inning. "We kind of went in there with a little momentum," manager Kirk Gibson said. "Last nights game was good for us. The thing about last nights game is, unless you play good (today), it doesnt really mean anything." Ross, batting .163 entering the game after coming back from major hip surgery, also doubled for Arizona, which has won two straight over the Dodgers after losing eight of the first nine meetings this season. "I felt something in BP the other day where I was, All right, I can start driving the ball," Ross said. Chris Owings singled three times and stole two bases for the Diamondbacks. The rookie is 9 for 11 against Haren. Hanley Ramirez and Adrian Gonzalez homered for the Dodgers, who have lost three of four. "Obviously, you dont want to keep losing series. If you lose series you are not going to go anywhere," Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said. "I am really worried about day to day. Till we can grind out wins, we are in trouble." Josh Collmenter (2-2) went 5 1-3 innings to get the win. Addison Reed threw a scoreless ninth for his 12th save. Collmenter was lifted after 84 pitches, allowing two runs and four hits. "If you can beat division rivals at home, thats big," Collmenter said. "Especially the way weve been able to play halfway decent on the road, if we can match that at home I think we can get our record where we want it to be." Haren gave up five runs, a season-high four earned, and 10 hits in six innings. "The last three games have been a struggle for me," he said. "Prior to that I was fine. I have to look and see what I was doing earlier in the year." Owings led off the fifth with a single. With two outs and a 3-2 count, Chavez -- who entered in the fourth after Martin Prado left with blurred vision in his left eye -- hit an opposite-field homer to left. That gave Chavez home runs in consecutive at-bats. He also had a pinch-hit shot Saturday. After first baseman Paul Goldschmidt dropped a relay throw for what would have been an inning-ending double play, the Dodgers loaded the bases with two outs against Brad Ziegler in the eighth. But second baseman Cliff Pennington caught Matt Kemps liner to end the inning. Ramirezs two-out homer in the first gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead. Arizona tied it with an unearned run in the second. Ross doubled and scored when Ramirez threw wildly to first while trying to turn what would have been an inning-ending double play. In the third, Ramirez walked and Gonzalez homered to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead. The Diamondbacks cut it to 3-2 when Gerardo Parra led off the bottom half with a single, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on Owings single. Ross first home run of the season tied it at 3 in the fourth. Even with the victory, the Diamondbacks are 6-16 at Chase Field this season.

Although head coach Randy Carlyle jokingly wondered how much actual training Bolland got done while in London.

Former top-flight referee Dermot Gallagher joined Rob Wotton in the Sky Sports News HQ studio to go through a number of contentious calls, not only in the Premier League but also in the Sky Bet Championship.From offside goals, rash challenges, questionable penalty appeals and acts of simulation, weve picked out nine incidents reviewed during Mondays Ref Watch. Was your team affected by a contentious decision? Read on to find out...MATCH: West Ham v ArsenalINCIDENT: Andy Carroll booked for tackle on Laurent Koscielny Koscielny goes down after Carrolls poor challenge in the opening stages of Saturdays game at Upton Park SCENARIO: Four minutes into Saturdays game at Upton Park, Carroll catches Koscielny on his Achilles with a late tackle from behind before appearing to follow through with his trailing leg as the defender went to ground.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: A yellow card was right. It was early in the game, it wasnt really nasty and, while its not nice, the referee has got that right. If he had sent him off there we would have been talking about it more. A yellow card was fair, it did set the tone for a great, feisty game to watch.MATCH: West Ham v ArsenalINCIDENT: Andy Carroll unpunished after aerial collision with Gabriel Andy catches Gabriel with an elbow during West Hams game with Arsenal SCENARIO: Arsenal centre-back Gabriel is struck in the face by Carroll, who has already been booked, two minutes into the second half. Referee Craig Pawson deems the challenge fair, allowing play to continue as Carroll escapes a second booking.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Carroll is lucky here. There were a number of incidents where people were saying he could have been sent off. Of all of those incidents this was the one, he would have had no arguments. This is not a red card offence but it was reckless and Carroll took a big chance doing what he did. His eyes were on the ball though, so that is what went in his favour. Despite that, he was lucky because he took a big risk while on a yellow card in a game of that nature. However, it proved to be a risk worth taking.MATCH: West Ham v ArsenalINCIDENT: Gabriel lashes out at Andy Carroll after being fouled Gabriel lashes out at Carroll just seconds after winning a free-kick for Carrolls initial challenge SCENARIO: Carroll dispossess Gabriel in the Arsenal half but is adjudged to have committed a foul in the process by referee Craig Pawson. Gabriel retaliates by throwing his leg towards Carroll, who narrowly avoid being struck. Both players go unpunished for their part in the incident.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Carrolls initial challenge is a foul but it didnt warrant a yellow card. Gabriel, meanwhile, is very lucky and I mean that. The referee gives a foul in his favour and then he has just gone for Carroll. He is very lucky to stay on the field. Pawson goes to talk to Carroll about his challenge and then seems to completely forget about Gabriel. It was completely forgotten altogether and Arsenal restarted the game with a free-kick to Gabriel, it didnt look tidy. There was no need for Gabriel to make the challenge because the referee had already given him a free-kick.MATCH: West Ham v ArsenalINCIDENT: Dimitri Payet has goal disallowed during West Hams 3-3 draw with Arsenal Dimitri Payet sweeps the ball into the unguarded net as Ospina, Koscielny and Carroll lay in a heap on the ground SCENARIO: Andy Carroll harasses Laurent Koscielny in the area while David Ospina hesitates in coming to collect the ball. The ball comes free and Payet sweeps it into the unguarded net, but referee Pawson pulls play back to penalise Carroll for a foul on Koscielny.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: This is definitely a foul, definitely, but this is not a second yellow card. The defender is shielding the ball and Carroll bundles him to the ground. Its a foul and the referee, quite rightly, has disallowed the gooal.ddddddddddddMATCH: Sunderland v LeicesterINCIDENT: Leicester denied a penalty after DeAndre Yedlins high challenge on Shinji Okazaki Yedlin catches Okazaki in the chest with a rash challenge SCENARIO: Marc Albrighton plays a diagonal ball over the Sunderland defence which Okazaki races on to. As the ball sails over the defence, Yedlins attempted clearance sees him miss the ball and catch Okazaki in the chest. Referee Anthony Taylor decides not to award Leicester a penalty.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: I think its a foul and a penalty. I dont think the referee realises what has happened. Yedlin had caught Okazaki in the chest and he is not near the ball. Anthony doesnt see it like that, but the penalty should have been given.MATCH: Sunderland v LeicesterINCIDENT: Sunderland denied penalty after appeals for handball against Robert Huth Van Aanholts cross clearly strikes Huths arm in the penalty area SCENARIO: Patrick van Aanholts low cross strikes Huths arm as the defender slides in to make a challenge. Referee Anthony Taylor decides chooses not to point to spot.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The cross strikes Huths hand, that is all it does. It does strike his hand and not the other way around so its definitely not a penalty for me. Huth cant cut his arm off, its there and he was just going to ground. His arms have to go somewhere and that is what you would call a natural position.MATCH: Man City v West BromINCIDENT: West Brom denied penalty after Eliaquim Mangalas challenge on Sandro Mangala collides into the back of Sandro in the Man City area SCENARIO: Stephane Sessegnon crosses the ball into the City area. Sandro looks to chest the ball down but he appears to be bundled to the ground by Mangala, who crashes into the back of him. Referee Mike Jones rules to challenge to be fair.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Mangala goes through the back of Sandro. Mangala cant play the ball. At some point during a game there are situations where players cannot win the ball, and this was one of those for Mangala. He has had to go through the player and I think that is a penalty.MATCH: Tottenham v Man UtdINCIDENT: Dele Alli booked for simulation by referee Mike Dean Alli goes to ground under Darmians challenge in the closing stages of Sundays game at White Hart Lane SCENARIO: Daley Blind and David de Gea combine to deny Mousa Dembele a fourth Spurs goal. The ball runs loose on the left-hand side of the box and Alli goes down under Matteo Darmians challenge. United win a free-kick and the yellow card is swiftly brandished by the official, who believes the England midfielder went down in search of a penalty.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: This is a tremendous decision by Mike Dean. It wasnt a penalty, there is no doubt about that whatsoever. Its a dive and there was no need for Alli to do it because they were 3-0 up.MATCH: Ipswich v BrentfordINCIDENT: Luke Hyam is booked for a leg-breaking challenge on Brentfords Alan Judge Judge suffers a lower-leg fracture following Hyams forceful challenge SCENARIO: Phil Gibbs issues a yellow card to Ipswich Towns Hyam after a forceful challenge on Judge. The Brentford man suffered a lower-leg fracture as a result of the second-minute tackle at Portman Road.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: I do think this is a bad tackle. You have to be careful and ensure you judge the tackle on the tackle itself and not the consequence. I realise the consequence of this challenge was not nice but I do think the tackle deserved a red card. It was dangerous as a tackle because of the tackle, it didnt become dangerous because the player suffered such an horrific injury. Also See: Premier League grades Schmeichel top Power Rankings ' ' '
