Greinke leads way as Dodgers drop MarlinsMIAMI - Zack Greinke allowed one run in eight innings to win his fourth start in a row Wednesday. The Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of sloppy defense by the Miami Marlins for the second consecutive night to beat them, 4-1.
Greinke (12-3) allowed six hits, walked none and lowered his ERA to 2.91.
The Marlins’ lone run came on a first-inning homer by Giancarlo Stanton, and they had only one hit after the fourth inning.
Miami committed a season-high three errors. Two Marlins errors led to two unearned runs in their 6-4 loss Tuesday.
Yasiel Puig went 0 for 5 but scored the Dodgers’ first run. The rookie sensation was back in right field after being held out of the starting lineup for one game because of a slump. He’s 7 for 42 (.167) over his past 11 games.
The Dodgers improved to 27-5 since the All-Star break, and they’ve won 21 of their past 24 road games. They’re unbeaten in their past 18 series since mid-June.
