SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Zack Greinke pitched six scoreless innings and hit his fourth career home run, and the Los Angeles Dodgers romped past the San Francisco Giants 17-0 on Saturday night to build on their lead in the NL West.
One day after being held to three hits in a 9-0 loss, the Dodgers doubled that output in the first inning against Giants starter Tim Hudson then coasted behind Greinke's 15th win this season.
Greinke (15-8) combined with three relievers on the shutout and improved to 4-0 in six career starts against the Giants. The 2009 AL Cy Young winner gave up hits to two of the first three batters he faced then retired 16 of the next 18. He struck out five.
The Dodgers extended their division lead to two games over the Giants and are guaranteed of leaving this series between the top two teams in the NL West in first place.
