AT THE PLATE: With left-hander Wade Miley starting for the Diamondbacks, right-handed-hitting Scott Van Slyke started in left field instead of the left-handed-hitting Andre Ethier or Carl Crawford. Van Slyke was two for five with a home run, a double and two runs scored. A.J. Ellis drove in Van Slyke with a fourth-inning single and scored from first base on an ensuing double by Greinke. Ellis, who recently returned from knee surgery and is considered one of the Dodgers' slower players, joked, "Two surgically repaired knees. I'm healthy." Hanley Ramirez showed signs of breaking out of his slump, as he drove in Yasiel Puig with a seventh-inning double. Ramirez nearly had another base hit in the third inning, when he lined out to right field.
