PHOENIX (AP) — Juan Uribe and Adrian Gonzalez homered, Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers inched closer to clinching the NL West title with a 9-3 rout of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

One day after coming off the disabled list, Matt Kemp went 4 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs.

The Dodgers, who once languished in last place 9½ games out, snapped a four-game skid and can clinch the division title by beating Arizona on Wednesday night.

Greinke (15-3) allowed two runs on six hits in six innings to improve to 7-0 in his last nine starts.

Patrick Corbin (14-7) gave up six runs on seven hits in two innings plus three batters, his shortest outing of the year.
