LOS ANGELES — For the past two seasons, Zack Greinke has been almost as reliable as the sun coming up. Greinke struck out 11 and shortstop Hanley Ramirez broke out of a slump with a home run, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies before a crowd of 40,776 at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night. That’s all you can really say,” Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp said of Greinke. Greinke (4-0) pitched seven-plus innings and gave up two runs, five hits and a walk.

A.J. Burnett made a couple of mistakes with his pitches and gave up the lead in the seventh inning. That was nothing compared to the huge error Carl Crawford committed for the Dodgers in the 10th. Domonic Brown doubled home the go-ahead run after Crawford’s miscue in left field, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat Los Angeles 3-2 Tuesday night. One night after Philadelphia’s Cliff Lee held the defending NL West champions to four hits through eight scoreless innings, Burnett took a four-hitter and a 2-1 lead into the seventh.

Just a few minutes earlier, Ruiz popped a ball up to left field with one out in the 10th inning of a tie game. He saw his pop up carom off Carl Crawfords glove and fall to the ground.

Cliff Lee gave the Dodgers a good lesson in what has made him a dominant pitcher: masterful control. Lee scattered four hits over eight innings, struck out 10 and retired 21 of his last 22 batters to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-0 victory. ”That’s definitely something I take pride in,” Lee said. I’ve made a conscious effort over the past few years to make that one of my priorities and it’s going to continue to be that way.” It was the fifth time Lee has had at least 10 Ks against the Dodgers and, this time, a number of their hitters were griping about umpire Hunter Wendelstedt’s strike zone.
