CINCINNATI -- Zack Greinke and two relievers combined on a four-hitter and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the reeling Cincinnati Reds with a 1-0 win on Thursday.
Greinke (14-3) lowered his major league-best ERA to 1.61 and allowed four hits over seven innings while leading Los Angeles to its first sweep of a series in Cincinnati since a three-game set in July 2009. He finished with two walks and nine strikeouts.
He improved to 7-2 in 12 games against Cincinnati.
The sweep helped the West Division-leading Dodgers salvage an eight-game road trip that started with five straight losses, including a no-hitter by Houston's Mike Fiers last week.
The Reds finished 1-9 on their homestand and have lost 12 of their past 13 games.
The double play was the first of five turned by the Reds in the game.
DeSclafani (7-10) allowed six hits - three by Ethier - and one run with one walk and six strikeouts in seven innings while losing his third consecutive start.
Adrian Gonzalez left Thursday's game after four innings with a right knee contusion. Gonzalez fouled a ball off the knee in the third inning. He's day to day. Gonzalez grounded out and struck out in his two at-bats.
Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.29 ERA) is scheduled to start Friday's opener of a three-game series against the Cubs at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw is 5-0 with a 0.90 ERA over his past nine starts.
