GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Zack Greinke struggled with his command in his fourth spring start, allowing five hits in 3 2-3 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the San Francisco Giants, 8-4, on Friday night.

After retiring the Giants’ first three batters in a crisp first inning, Greinke walked Andrew Susac and gave up a single to Gregor Blanco in the second. Susac and Blanco scored on an error by left fielder Carl Crawford, who dropped a routine fly ball by Ehire Adrianzi.

In the fourth, the Giants got to Greinke for two runs, first on Blanco’s RBI triple and then an RBI double by starting pitcher Chris Heston that ended Greinke’s night.

The Dodgers scored three times in the first on a two-run double by Adrian Gonzalez and an RBI single by Crawford.

Susac hit a solo homer in the sixth for the Giants, who added three runs in the ninth.
