                   === Dodgers turn to Kershaw in Arizona ===
 
 (SportsNetwork.com) - Clayton Kershaw makes his third start since returning
 from the disabled list on Saturday when the Los Angeles Dodgers continue a
 three-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.
 
 Kershaw, who missed more than a month with a back injury, threw a quality
 start on Sunday against San Francisco, allowing three runs and seven hits in
 seven innings. However, he did not get a decision in his team's 7-4 loss, but
 is 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA.
 
 He also gave up a home run on a curveball for the first time in his career.
 
 "We played really good," said Kershaw. "Guys made plays, got clutch hits,
 played the game the right way. For me to give up the home run after we got the
 lead, I kind of gave it up there. For me, personally, I've got to shut it down
 right there."
 
 Kershaw beat Arizona to start the year in Australia and is 8-6 lifetime
 against them with a 2.17 ERA in 18 starts. Although, he has lost his last four
 starts at Chase Field and has pitched to a 4.15 ERA in the process.
 
 Los Angeles can only hope he delivers the way Zack Greinke did in Friday's
 opener. The former AL Cy Young Award winner pitched eight shutout innings and
 Yasiel Puig went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI to power the Dodgers to a
 7-0 win.
 
 Scott Van Slyke tacked on two hits, including a solo homer, to give the
 Dodgers their 15th win in the last 19 games against Arizona.
 
 "We got contributions from all over," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "It
 was a good game for us."
 
 Greinke (7-1) allowed five hits, walked two and had six strikeouts to give the
 Dodgers their record seventh straight road win over the Diamondbacks. That
 includes the two contests in Australia to start this season.
 
 Greinke has given up two or fewer runs in 21 straight starts, the longest such
 stretch for any MLB pitcher since at least 1914. He's gone 14-2 since the
 streak began.
 
 Puig, who extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games, has at least
 one extra-base hit and one RBI in each of his last seven contests.
 
 Wade Miley (3-4) yielded seven hits and four runs in six innings for Arizona,
 which fell to 1-8 this season against the Dodgers.
 
 "He was just unable to command the zone unlike the guy from the other side,"
 Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said of Miley. "It's inconsistency, he has to
 keep the ball down."
 
 Tonight, Arizona will turn to righty Chase Anderson, who will be making the
 second start of his big league career. Anderson was terrific in his debut on
 Saturday against Chicago, as he held the White Sox to a run and two hits over
 5 1/3 innings. He also struck out six and walked a batter.
