Greinke and Dodgers beat Cubs 6-2

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zack Greinke came within one strike of his fifth career shutout, Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig homered, and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 6-2 Monday night, ending a 2-game skid.

The Cubs lost for the eighth straight time to the Dodgers, including a 4-game sweep at Wrigley Field earlier this month. The Dodgers equaled their longest winning streak against the Cubs in franchise history, set from June 9, 1974-May 19, 1975.

Greinke (13-3) tied his season high with nine strikeouts and he walked two while improving to 5-0 this month. The right-hander has won 10 of 11 decisions since June 22.

Greinke helped himself offensively, too, with a two-out hit in the fourth that scored the Dodgers' first run.

After giving up a single to Starlin Castro to open the game, Greinke retired the next 13 batters before Donnie Murphy singled in the fifth.
