Dodgers starter Zack Greinke delivers a pitch during the first inning of Monday's 6-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
(Rick Scuteri / Associated Press / July 8, 2013)
A two-out single off the bat of Juan Uribe scored Hanley Ramirez and gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead through four innings over the Diamondbacks Monday night.
Through the first four innings, Dodger starter Zack Greinke gave up just one hit – and he did not hit a batter. The latter is significant because tonight marks the first series between the two teams since a June 11 contest that featured a benches-clearing crawl.
Greinke also started that night, and was hit up near his head late in the game, the pitch that sparked the melee.
