    After Tyson Ross struck out 10 Dodgers in five innings, Puig hit a tiebreaker off Dale Thayer for a 2-1 win over the Padres that meant a series sweep for the Dodgers and a sixth consecutive win for Zack Greinke, who allowed two hits in seven innings.

Puig was slated to take batting practice before Tuesday night's game at Colorado, but manager Don Mattingly says the Cuban slugger probably will not play against the Rockies. Andre Ethier had three hits, including a two-run homer, to lift the Dodgers to their fifth straight victory. He has been feeling some soreness in his knee for weeks, but aggravated it running to first on Nolan Arenado's error and then felt it again when he slid into third after Adrian Gonzalez's single.
