Zack Greinke powered the Dodgers to a 2-1 win Sunday, hitting the go-ahead home run in the fifth inning one batter after Joc Pederson tied the game with a home run of his own. He pitched pretty well too, lowering his major-league leading ERA to 1.58 with seven strong innings. The box score is here.
As good as Greinke was, Kenley Jansen had a bigger day — attending the delivery of his first son before delivering his 129th career save for the Dodgers.

Mat Latos insisted Thursday night he’d moved on from a spring feud with the Cincinnati Reds, his former team. Clearly, though, he hadn’t moved on from the same shortcomings that plagued his previous outing in a 10-3 Dodgers loss. The photo gallery is here. The box score is here.
Thursday’s demotion of Jose Peraza, and the recent relegation of Carl Crawford to the bench, raises an important question: Are the Dodgers bad baserunners or are they just slow? Davey Lopes and a bunch of nerd stats weigh in.
