PHOENIX (AP) Zack Greinke was aided by three defensive gems while pitching seven strong innings in his first game against his old team since leaving Los Angeles, and the Arizona Diamondbacks got home runs from Paul Goldschmidt and Jake Lamb to beat the Dodgers 3-2 on Monday night.

Greinke (9-3), who signed a six-year, $206.5 million with the Diamondbacks, was backed by big plays from left fielder Peter O'Brien, second baseman Jean Segura and center fielder Michael Bourn. Greinke allowed two runs and seven hits to win his sixth consecutive start, throwing a season-high 119 pitches.

Goldschmidt and Lamb hit solo home runs off Mike Bolsinger (1-4).

Corey Seager homered for the Dodgers.

Brad Ziegler got the final five outs for his 41st consecutive save, 13th this season.
