The Los Angeles Dodgers began their six-game road trip Thursday in Colorado as they met the Rockies for the second time in just over two weeks.
Zack Greinke was on the mound for his second start against the Rockies this season with the Dodgers looking to put an end to their two-game losing streak. Greinke held the Rockies to an infield single in the first inning and collected two strikeouts as both teams remained scoreless into the bottom of the second.
Corey Dickerson led off the inning with a single over the outstretched arm of a leaping Hanley Ramirez, which brought up Nolan Arenado with a runner on.
The Rockies’ third baseman was activated from the disabled list after he missed 37 games with a broken finger. Entering the game, Arenado was a career .273 hitter against Greinke in 11 at-bats.
On a 1-1 count, Arenado hit a soft liner that Greinke timed to make a jumping catch and turned to first base to double off Dickerson.
