(Newser) – Mark Reynolds hit two of Arizona's four home runs Monday night, and the Diamondbacks won their home opener 9-3 over the Los Angeles Dodgers to stretch their winning streak to four games. Orlando Hudson had a two-run homer, and Chris Young added a solo shot and an RBI single after agreeing to a six-year contract extension earlier in the day.

Reynolds and Young each have four home runs. Dan Haren gave up three runs - one earned - in six innings to get his first Arizona victory. Haren (1-0), acquired in a trade with Oakland in the offseason, allowed six hits, struck out five and walked none. Jeff Kent drove in two runs with a homer and single for Los Angeles.
