Dodgers beat Nats in Greinke’s return

LOS ANGELES - Zack Greinke pitched five and one-third strong innings in his first start since April 11 and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals, 3-1, on Wednesday night.

Greinke came off the disabled list earlier in the day, returning three weeks sooner than expected from a broken left clavicle after a confrontation with San Diego’s Carlos Quentin last month.

The right-hander was expected to be out eight weeks. He underwent surgery on April 13 to fix the injury with a metal plate used to stabilize the break.

Greinke (2-0) made one rehab appearance last Friday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga, and the Dodgers decided he was ready to rejoin them.
