Recap


Dodgers 6, Padres 1:
Zack Greinke struck out eight in eight strong innings to outduel a wild Edinson Volquez as visiting Los Angeles earned a rare victory.

Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez each belted a solo home run for the Dodgers, who won for just the fourth time in their last 13 games. Greinke (4-2), who was pitching against San Diego for the first time since breaking his collarbone in a brawl with Carlos Quentin on April 11, allowed a run on four hits.

Volquez (5-6) did not allow a hit until Gonzalez’s leadoff blast in the sixth but issued seven walks and was charged with five runs - two earned - on two hits in 5 2/3 innings. Jesus Guzman plated the Padres’ lone run with a double in the eighth.

Los Angeles scored without the benefit of a hit in the fifth, when Volquez walked the bases loaded before Skip Schumaker pushed across a run with a groundout.

Gonzalez’s shot to center made it 2-0, and a walk and a single put two more runners on before shortstop Pedro Ciriaco’s error led to two runs in the sixth. Volquez walked Greinke before being replaced by Brad Boxberger, who yielded an RBI single by Schumaker that capped the four-run inning.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Quentin (shoulder) returned to the lineup for the first time since June 14 and went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts against Greinke. … Dodgers rookie RF Yasiel Puig went 0-for-3 to snap an eight-game hitting streak and drop his average to .435 in 18 games. … San Diego placed LHP Clayton Richard, who left Friday’s start after two pitches, on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder strain. The Padres also recalled Boxberger and RHP Anthony Bass and optioned OF Jaff Decker to Triple-A Tucson.
