LOS ANGELES -- Zack Greinke pitched 5 1-3 strong innings in his first start since April 11 and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 3-1 on Wednesday night. Greinke came off the disabled list earlier in the day, returning three weeks sooner than expected from a broken left clavicle after a confrontation with San Diegos Carlos Quentin last month. The right-hander was expected to be out eight weeks. He underwent surgery on April 13 to fix the injury with a metal plate used to stabilize the break. Greinke (2-0) made one rehab appearance last Friday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga, and the Dodgers decided he was ready to rejoin them. He proved them right, allowing one run and five hits, striking out four and walking none. Los Angeles went 10-19 since his injury. Greinke helped himself with a RBI single with two outs in the second that extended the Dodgers lead to 2-0. Brandon League pitched the ninth to earn his ninth save in 10 chances, helping the Dodgers close out the series 2-1 and giving them consecutive series victories for just the third time this season. They are 19-4 against the Nationals at home since the start of the 2006 season. Los Angeles held Washington to one run in the Nationals last 22 innings of the series. Ross Detwiler (2-4) gave up two runs and six hits in three innings -- his shortest outing of the season. The left-hander walked two and struck out none. The Nationals fell to 3-5 when he starts. Detwiler is 0-6 in six career road starts against NL West opponents. Nationals star Bryce Harper returned as a pinch-hitter in the ninth for the first time since cutting his chin and hurting his shoulder in a collision with the outfield wall on Monday. He grounded out to first base. The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the first on Adrian Gonzalezs RBI single up the middle with two outs. Matt Kemp scored after extending his hitting streak to 14 games with a ground-rule double. Andre Ethier led off the second with a single. Scott Van Slyke walked and then Juan Uribe hit into a double play. Greinke followed with a single to right field, his second hit of the season. The Dodgers made it 3-1 in the eighth on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter Carl Crawford. Washington trailed 2-1 in the fourth on Adam LaRoches homer that extended his 12-game hitting streak. The Nats had the tying run at third base in the eighth. Steve Lombardozzi singled off Kenley Jansen to open the inning before being replaced by pinch-runner Eury Perez. He took third on Ryan Zimmermans single that dropped in shallow right field. Jansen then retired three consecutive batters to end the inning. Notes: Nationals C Wilson Ramos left the game after he singled in the fourth. ... Detwiler walked Scott Van Slyke in the second, snapping a streak of 20.0 consecutive innings without a walk issued by the Nationals staff. ... The Nats have hit at least one home run in 69 consecutive series dating to Sept. 12-15, 2011. ... Dodgers LHP Ted Lilly made his first rehab start for Class A Rancho Cucamonga since going on the DL with a strained right rib cage. He hasnt pitched since April 29 against Colorado. ...

Howe has been with Bournemouth since 2012 and is in his second spell as manager of the club, while Arsene Wenger is approaching two decades in charge of the Gunners.I think that is the dream to have longevity in management, said 38-year-old Howe, who was a teenage defender for the Cherries when Wenger succeeded Bruce Rioch in north London in 1996. I dont feel like I have been here a long time, I just feel time goes so quickly and seasons fly by. I dont think it is healthy for the profession that I am up [at the top of the list].I dont think it is a good thing that managers are changing so quickly and then philosophies change but it seems to be the way football is going.Howe believes managers can develop by watching Wenger. Arsene Wenger joined the Gunners from Nagoya Grampus Eight I am full of respect for Arsene, Howe added.The fact that he has been able to stay at such a big club under that scrutiny, to withstand that pressure, to keep producing teams and playing good football, it is incredibly difficult.That is the challenge for every manager but it seems like it is becoming more difficult as time goes on.I think management is getting harder and harder with the microscope really set on people week in, week out, especially at the bigger clubs.I think you can learn a lot just analysing what he has done and how he has done it and there are certain principals - he is very strong to his beliefs and how he believes football should be played. Eddie Howe is not setting any points targets in Bournemouths bid for Premier League survival Howe has been linked with big Premier League clubs and tipped as a potential future England manager after taking Bournemouth to the top flight but the 38-year-old says he has no intention of moving any time soon.ddddddddddddHe said: The key thing for me, if I was offered another job, would be my relationship here and what Im feeling with this club.Thats always been my way of working and thinking. If Im happy and able to express myself here then Im not the type of person to look over the fence and want to move next door.The way I manage is very long term, I am always thinking of the long-term interests of this football club. When you work that way you cant just say Ive had a better offer, Im going to go.Watch Bournemouth take on Arsenal on Sunday from 1:30pm live on Sky Sports 1 Also See: Sky Live: Bmouth v Arsenal Giroud warns of Afobe Howes warning for Afobe Afobes Arsenal reunion Wholesale JerseysWholesale Jerseyscheap jerseysCheap JersyesCheap Basketball JerseysCheap NHL Jerseyscheap jerseysCheap JerseysCheap JerseysCheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
