Dodgers rally against Zack Greinke, hand Diamondbacks another one-run loss, 3-2 – Orange County Register

PHOENIX – If the Arizona Diamondbacks wanted to make the Dodgers sweat, they would have done better to leave the roof of Chase Field open to the 110-degree heat.

But maybe they have at least given the Dodgers something to think about.

Held to one hit – a solo home run by Cody Bellinger – through six innings by right-hander Zack Greinke, the Dodgers broke through for two runs in the seventh and handed the Diamondbacks a 3-2 defeat Wednesday night at Chase Field.

It does little but take another day off the baseball calendar. The Dodgers’ lead in the NL West is a robust 15½ games over the Colorado Rockies with the Diamondbacks 16 games back now. The NL order is all but set. The Diamondbacks and Rockies have strong holds on the wild-card spots (the Cardinals and Brewers are seven games back) and the winner of the wild-card play-in game will face the Dodgers in a best-of-five NL Division Series (assuming the Dodgers maintain their status as the NL’s top dog).
