LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez hit a pair of three-run homers to reach 100 RBIs for the seventh time, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2 on Sunday after Trevor Cahill held them hitless for more than five innings.
Zack Greinke (14-8) gave up two runs and six hits before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter during the Dodgers’ three-run sixth. The NL West leaders now have three pitchers with at least 14 wins in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1977-78, when they had four in both years.
Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner, is 5-0 with a 1.59 ERA in his last six starts against Arizona.
With one out in the sixth, Dee Gordon slapped Cahill’s 68th pitch of the game down the left-field line for an opposite-field double that broke up the no-hit bid.
