SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Zack Greinke turned in his best work of the spring, with four shutout innings and six strikeouts as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Texas Rangers in an 11-3 Saturday to complete a split-squad two-game sweep.

Greinke struck out the side of Leonys Martin, Elvis Andrus and Ryan Ludwick in the first. Andrus had been the Rangers' hottest hitter, reaching base safely in five of his last six plate appearances. Martin and Andrus were a combined 5-for-6 on Friday against the Dodgers, but went 0-for-3 against Greinke.

This was Greinke's third appearance in spring training. He gave up three hits.

The Dodgers got a pair of home runs from Adrian Gonzalez, his first of the spring. Kike Hernandez led off the game with a homer off Anthony Ranaudo, and Justin Thomas sent one out in the third. He has hit in 10 straight games and has .469 batting average this spring.
