GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Zack Greinke gave up one hit, a homer to Josh Phegley, in three innings, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 10-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday.

Kendall Graveman helped his chances at winning a spot in Oakland’s starting rotation. He pitched two-hit ball for 4 2-3 scoreless innings, his third spring start. The right-hander, acquired on Nov. 28 in a trade with Toronto, struck out two.

In the eighth, the Dodgers scored eight runs on three homers — a grand slam by Darnell Sweeney, a 3-run drive by Scott Schebler and a solo shot by Chris Heisey.

The A’s added three runs in the fourth, all off right-hander Chris Hatcher. Phegley had a two-run double to right field.

The Dodgers scored two in the sixth. Darwin Barney hit an RBI double to center and Corey Seager scored on a groundout by Adrian Gonzalez.
