PHOENIX - Adrian Gonzalez must love it when he sees the word "Arizona" on the opposing uniform. Alvaro Morata Jersey . Chances are hes in for a big night. Gonzalez did it again Saturday night, hitting a two-run homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 8-5. Zack Greinke (3-0) scattered eight hits but allowed one run in 5 1-3 innings for Los Angeles. Gonzalez, who had a two-run homer and five RBIs in the series opener Friday, followed that up with a shot to the left-field seats off Wade Miley (2-2) with two outs in the third inning. Gonzalez has 26 career home runs and 84 RBIs against the Diamondbacks, most of any active player in both categories. He left without talking to reporters on Saturday, but said the previous night he had no good explanation for the success. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said in a career players just have opponents like that. "Theres nothing like good vibes," he said. "You walk into a building and know youve swung the bat good there. There is something to that. You walk in feeling good because you have good memories. A place you go and youve been shut out for five years, you dont have the same type of feeling." The Dodgers scored 14 runs in the first two games of the series. "I think Arizona is just a good place to hit," Mattingly said. "You see the ball good here. We have one more day here and then you end up in AT&T (in San Francisco) and the ball doesnt carry and its not the same. But we have swung the bats well. A lot of contributions from different people." Greinke succeeded even though he was not at his best. "Its nice to have a pitch that you can just go to at any time," he said. "I didnt really have that today. But there was a lot of usable pitches." Miley gave up five runs and eight hits in five innings. A.J. Pollock had a pinch-hit homer for the Diamondbacks, who scored three in the ninth off Brandon League, two on Mark Trumbos two-out double. Kenley Jansen came in to strike out Gerardo Parra and earn his third save. Juan Uribe doubled twice and had a two-run single for Los Angeles. Yasiel Puig had a pair of singles, driving in a run. The Dodgers, who have won four of five, got the leadoff batter on base five times in the first six innings, three via walks, and four of them scored. Arizona fell to 3-9. "We dont like losing," manager Kirk Gibson said. "It never makes you feel good. Guys are pressing. They are trying to do well and reverse this cycle, this trend. When it continues to happen it is frustrating." Los Angeles scored twice without an out in the second inning. Gonzalez drew a leadoff walk, Scott Van Slyke doubled to put runners at second and third, and Uribe singled to bring both of them home. Puig led off the third with a single, then with two outs Gonzalez homered to make it 4-0 and give the slugger seven RBIs in the first 12 innings of the series. Los Angeles added a fifth run in the fourth. Justin Turner led off with a double and scored on Puigs two-out single. Arizona finally got a run after being blanked for the first 13 innings of the series when Pollock led off the fifth with a home run to the porch in right-centre, his first career pinch-hit homer. The Dodgers got an unearned run without a hit in the sixth. Oliver Perez walked Drew Butera to start the inning. Greinkes bunt advanced the runner to second, then Butera scored when third baseman Martin Prado couldnt handle Matt Kemps sharp grounder. J.J. Putz walked Hanley Ramirez with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth to make it 7-1. Cliff Pennington singled in Arizonas second run in the eighth. NOTES: With the left-hander Miley on the mound, the Dodgers sat left-handed batters Ethier and Carl Crawford. ... The Dodgers have Dan Haren (2-0, 0.75 ERA) on the mound Sunday while struggling Trevor Cahill (0-3, 7.90) goes for Arizona. ... The Diamondbacks have lost four of five series to start the season. ... The Diamondbacks have struck out 23 times in the first two games of the series. Pedro Jersey . The 20-year-old Barkley, whose impressive form this season could earn him a place in Englands World Cup squad, was hurt in Evertons 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup on Jan. Fikayo Tomori Jersey .C. -- The Steve Smith era in Carolina is over. http://www.chelseasoccerjerseysonline.com/womens-davide-zappacosta-chelsea-jersey/ . Joining him in this years class were Switzerlands Patrick Huerlimann and Norways Eigil Ramsfjell. The announcement was made at the world mens curling championship at Capital Indoor Stadium in China.LONDON - Spanish doubles tennis player Nuria Llagostera Vives has been suspended for two years after testing positive for methamphetamine at a tournament. The International Tennis Federation said the 33-year-old Llagostera Vivess ban expires Sep. 7, 2015. Llagostera Vives now plays only doubles, though her singles ranking reached No. 35 in June 2005. The ITF said she was due to play with doubles partner Francesca Schiavone at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, California in July, but withdrew because the Italian was unwell. Llagostera Vives was still randomly selected for a doping control and could not explain how the drug entered her system, according to a ruling by the ITFs independent tribunal which the governing body published. The day before the doping control, Llagostera Vives had visited San Francisco but said she had "only consumed a bottle of water" while there, the ruling stated. ITF expert witness Christiane Ayotte said the banned substance "was and is available onlyy as a street drug (crystal meth or meth) or as a stimulant or as a party drug," except when prescribed for some behavioural disorders. Baba Rahman Jersey. The ruling stated that Llagostera Vives did not claim a medical exemption which would explain why the substance was present, and only later informed that she took some supplements and over-the-counter medications in the days before the doping control. The tribunal panel expressed concern about how the ITF educated players in completing paperwork when asked to give samples. "The main concern would be if the players professed ignorance of the significance of completing this part of the form correctly and fully were to be attributable to a lack of education in this respect of Ms. Llagostera and her fellow professionals," the tribunal panel said. Llagostera Vives will retain prize money and ranking points in five tournaments played since July, including reaching the last 16 in doubles at the U.S. Open together with Liezel Huber.
