The Dodgers are 51-13 in their last 64 games including 5-0 against the Padres during that span. LOS ANGELES -- On the mound at the plate and even on the bases Zack Greinke was on his game on Sunday leading the Dodgers to a 2-1 win over the Padres to complete a three-game series sweep. The Dodgers have won four straight games and are 17-4 in their last 21 games against the National League West. Greinke allowed just one run on two hits in his seven innings for his 14th win of the season. Greinke has won each of his last six starts and has allowed 13 total runs over his last 11 games. During that span Greinke is 8-1 with a 1.47 ERA with 67 strikeouts and 17 walks in 77⅔ innings. Greinke has four starts in 2013 with at least seven innings and just two hits allowed and all four have come against the National League West. Against his own division this season Greinke is 5-0 with a 2.53 ERA in eight starts against the NL West this season and the Dodgers have won seven of those eight games. Tyson Ross was able to match Greinke at least for a while. Ross struck out a career-high 10 while allowing just one run on five hits and a walk but thanks to an escalating pitch count he was removed after 105 pitches and just five innings. Relief pitcher Dale Thayer pitched the sixth inning for San Diego and Puig was the second batter he faced. Thayer's first pitch to Yasiel Puig was deposited into the left field pavilion for a tie-breaking home run and a 2-1 lead for the Dodgers. Greinke wasn't just good on the mound on Sunday. He also went 1-for-2 at the plate and that included narrowly missing a double to left center field in the third inning on a nice catch by Will Venable. After his single in the fifth inning Greinke stole second base easily and likely terrified thousands with his headfirst slide into second.
