The Dodgers are desperately looking for wins and momentum, and put forth arguably the best team effort all season Saturday, defeating the Padres 6-1.

Zack Greinke led the way by pitching eight innings of one run ball, while accumulating a season-high eight strike outs. From the outset Greinke consistently attacked the strike zone and had Bud Black's team off balanced by changing speeds. Padres starter Edinson Volquez put forth a valiant effort, but got out dueled because of seven walks and some awfully tough luck. Volquez didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning.

Don Mattingly's club caught a much needed break in the top of the fifth inning, as Skip Schumaker was clearly out at first base but ruled safe. On the play, Juan Uribe scored the games first run. Despite the recent trend of blown calls, the MLB doesn't intend on expanding the current review system.

Uribe's run seemed like a game altering play, and could've lead to a lucky win. However, the Dodgers made sure to earn the win by adding insurance numerous times.

Adrian Gonzalez started the sixth inning rally by hitting a solo shot in the sixth frame, extending the lead to 2-0. Prior to the at bat, Gonzalez was having a disastrous series at 0-10 against his former mates.

Later on in the sixth Friday's hero Perdo Ciriaco made a costly error, allowing two Dodgers to score. The sixth inning scoring continued via Skip Schumaker's RBI single.

Hanley Ramirez decided to join the party in the seventh by blasting a monstrous home run, extending the lead to 6-0. The ball landed in the third story of the brick outfield building.

The Padres sole run came in the bottom of the eighth on a Jesus Guzman RBI single.
