HOUSTON — Zack Greinke allowed three hits, two left the park, and the Dodgers’ seven hits were (perhaps surprisingly) not enough to win one day after they were no-hit by Mike Fiers. The box score is here.

OAKLAND — Alex Wood, not Mat Latos, will start for the Dodgers on Wednesday against the A’s. Latos is available out of the bullpen tonight and will be for the duration of the road trip, manager Don Mattingly said.
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.
