Zack Greinke took the mound Sunday looking to remain perfect against the Arizona Diamondbacks since 2013 and complete the three-game sweep for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Greinke retired the Diamondbacks in order in the first inning, then ran into trouble in the second. Miguel Montero began the inning with a single to left and it was followed by two more singles to load the bases with no outs.

Alfredo Marte flied out to right that turned into a double play as Matt Kemp threw a strike to home plate to nail Montero on his attempt to score. DiDi Gregorius then hit a slow roller up the first base line and beat Drew Butera’s underhand toss to first base, which allowed Cody Ross to score and the Diamondbacks took a 1-0 lead.

Andre Ethier reached with one out in the bottom of the second inning on a Gregorius error, but was erased on an double play. Greinke walked two batters in the third, which hurt him as Ross extended the Diamondbacks’ lead to 2-0 with a two-out RBI single.

Trevor Cahill continued to breeze through the game until the fourth when the Dodgers posed a small threat. Hanley Ramirez drew a one-out walk and then stole second base without a throw. However, was stranded by Adrian Gonzalez and Kemp, and the Dodgers trailed 2-0 after four innings.
