MIAMI -- Zack Greinke said he was merely trying to beat the Miami Marlins and not competing with teammate Clayton Kershaw. Greinke allowed one run in eight innings and won his fourth start in a row Wednesday by pitching the Los Angeles Dodgers past Miami 4-1. The right-hander improved to 12-3 and tied major-league ERA leader Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu for the team lead in victories. Greinke said theres no rivalry among the Dodgers pitchers, not even a friendly one. "Kersh is on such another level that if you try to do better than him, youre going to get your feelings hurt," Greinke said. Actually, Greinke has been tough to top lately, with an ERA of 0.41 over his past three starts. With LeBron James watching from behind home plate, Greinke allowed Miami six hits, walked none and lowered his ERA to 2.91. The Marlins lone run came on a first-inning homer by Giancarlo Stanton. They had only one base runner against Greinke over his final 4 1-3 innings. "They actually hit him a little bit early, and you saw him make a quick adjustment and start using a lot more curveballs," manager Don Mattingly said. "It was kind of cool to watch him turn the page and throw more breaking balls and change speeds a lot more. All of a sudden he was getting quick innings." Kershaw is scheduled to pitch the final game of the series Thursday. Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said he believes the teams starters do compete with each other, which makes them all better. "They wouldnt be where theyre at without a competitive nature," Honeycutt said. "Theres a sense of pride. When Kersh goes out and sets the tone, Zack wants to go deeper in games." While Greinke gave the Marlins fits, sloppy defence doomed them for the second night in a row. They committed a season-high three errors, including two in the Dodgers three-run fourth inning. Two Marlins errors led to two unearned runs in their 6-4 loss Tuesday. "Weve got to pick it up defensively. Were making way too many mistakes," manager Mike Redmond said. "We cant make a lot of mistakes, especially against such a good team." Yasiel Puig was back in the Dodgers starting lineup. He appeared to tweak his lower left leg in the early going and limped slightly at times but stayed in the game. Puig went 0 for 5 and is batting .167 (7 for 42) over his past 11 games. The rookie sensation was back in right field after being held out of the starting lineup for one game because of his slump. "He has some good swings, I thought," Mattingly said. The announced crowd of 24,996 included Puigs friend, James, making his first visit to Marlins Park. James sat next to one of the aquariums along the backstop and drew the nights biggest cheer when he was shown on the video scoreboard as Puig stepped to the plate. "I think Puig thought it was for him," Redmond said. "That was kind of funny." The Dodgers improved to 27-5 since the All-Star break, and theyve won 21 of their past 24 road games. Theyre unbeaten in their past 18 series since mid-June. Los Angeles had only seven hits and went 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position. Much of the Dodgers offence came from Hanley Ramirez, who had two hits, scored twice and drove in a run against his former team. Aside from Stantons homer, only two Marlins reached second base against Greinke, and one was picked off. Kenley Jansen completed the six-hitter by pitching the ninth for his 21st save in 24 chances. He gave up a walk before centre fielder Andre Ethier made a long run and caught Adeiny Hechavarrias drive at the base of the wall to end the game. That left the Marlins (48-77) back on pace to lose 100 games. Ex-Dodger Nathan Eovaldi (2-4) hit 100 mph on the radar gun and allowed only two earned runs in seven innings. But he was again hurt by the poor run support that has plagued him this season, and fell to 0-4 in his past seven starts. "I felt good," Eovaldi said. "Fastball command was there, off-speed stuff was there. I just had that bump in the road in the fourth inning." Puig reached on a wild throw by third baseman Ed Lucas to start the fourth, and Los Angeles took advantage of the mistake. Ramirez doubled home a run, Ethier put the Dodgers ahead with an RBI single, and Ramirez came home on a wild pickoff throw to first by Eovaldi to make the score 3-1. Stantons 16th homer in the first put the Marlins ahead 1-0. Their first two batters singled in the second, but Greinke pitched out of the jam. Notes: Ethier had two hits to improve his career average against Miami to .395. ... Stanton had two hits and is 7 for 13 in the series. ... Greinke improved to 3-0 in five starts against the Marlins.

Joel Bitonio Jersey .com) - The Oakland Athletics needed to rely on a lot of young pitchers to win an American League West title this season.New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Once again, the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns felt right at home in the Big Easy. Terrance Broadway threw for 227 yards and Hunter Stover kicked three field goals as the Ragin Cajuns won an unprecedented fourth straight New Orleans Bowl with a 16-3 triumph over Nevada. Broadway completed a crisp 26-of-31 passes with a first-quarter touchdown to C.J. Bates, though it was Louisianas defense that played the biggest role in the programs latest successful venture into the Superdome. Louisiana (9-4) held the Wolf Pack to season-low totals in points and total yards (213), with Nevada (7-6) mustering just 89 on the ground after rushing for 223 or more in five straight games coming in. Cody Fajardo, Nevadas dual-threat quarterback, was kept squarely in check in his final collegiate game, throwing for a mere 124 yards on 14-of-29 passing and gaining 49 yards on 13 carries. Elijah McGuire put up 153 yards from scrimmage to help the Cajuns close out the season with an eighth win in nine tries, with James Butler recording eight catches for 53 yards in the victory. Final Score: Utah State 21, UTEP 6 Albuquerque, NM (SportsNetwork.ddddddddddddcom) - The New Mexico Bowl was bereft of big plays, but Kent Myers accounted for two of them as Utah State grinded out a 21-6 victory over UTEP on Saturday. Myers ran for a 48-yard touchdown in the first quarter and set up a Nick Vigil TD run in the third with a 46-yard pass to JoJo Natson. The Aggies were otherwise stagnant on offense, but so were the Miners, who converted 5-of-20 third-down tries and managed just 149 rushing yards, well below their season average of 212. Utah State (10-4) reached double-digit wins for the second time in school history and posted its third straight postseason victory. The Miners (7-6) were hoping to end their campaign the way they started -- with a win at University Stadium in Albuquerque. They upended New Mexico there in the season opener behind Aaron Jones 237 yards and three TDs on the ground, but Jones was limited to 88 yards on 25 carries in the finale. Jameill Showers completed 13-of-24 passes for 126 yards and an interception in defeat.
