Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Aaron Hill hit for his second cycle of the month on Friday and the Diamondbacks downed the Brewers, 9-3, in the opener of a three-game series.

Hill, who also hit for the cycle on June 18, recorded his 1,000th career hit with a ground-rule double in the first inning. He also singled and scored as part of a five-run third, hit a two-run homer in the fourth and belted an RBI triple in the sixth.

Paul Goldschmidt was equally as impressive, going 4-for-4 with two doubles and a three-run homer for the Diamondbacks, who improved to 16-8 over their last 24 games.

Ian Kennedy (6-7) earned the win, allowing three runs -- one earned -- on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out seven.

Cesar Izturis hit a two-run double for the Brewers, losers of five of their last six games.

Randy Wolf (2-6) was charged with eight runs -- seven earned -- on nine hits over four innings in the setback. He is 0-4 over his last 11 starts and has not won since April 30.
