LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Zack Greinke fired six shutout innings Saturday and the Los Angeles Dodgers stayed hot with a 5-0 interleague blanking of Tampa Bay.

Adrian Gonzalez bashed a two-run homer in the first inning while Nick Punto went 2-for-3 with a two-run single for National League West-leading Los Angeles, which clinched the three-game series and improved to 19-3 since the All-Star Game break.

Skip Schumaker supplied four hits for the winners.

Roberto Hernandez (6-12) was tagged for five runs on eight hits over four full innings for the Rays, who came into the contest two games behind AL-East-leading Boston.
