Zack Greinke scattered four hits over seven scoreless innings to outduel Matt Harvey, Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers survived their shaky bullpen to beat the New York Mets 4-3 on Saturday night.
Greinke (7-2) extended his scoreless innings streak to 27 2/3 while striking out four and walking none. He had a two-out single in the fourth inning, too.
J.P. Howell got the final out for his first save since June 12, 2011, against Tampa Bay.
