Zack Greinke was scratched with calf soreness, but Carlos Frias and the bullpen were up to the challenge in his place. Chase Utley homered early, then doubled home the go-ahead run in the eighth, leading the Dodgers over the Diamondbacks.
The Giants lost in San Diego, when coupled with the Dodgers' win over Arizona gave LA a seven-game division lead with 11 games left. The Dodgers lowered their magic number to clinch the National League West down to five.
The Dodgers will have Jimmy Rollins at shortstop for the first time since September 6 on Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks, and will have Carlos Frias on the mound, making his first major league start since June 30.
