LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zack Greinke scattered six hits through 6 1-3 innings, Adrian Gonzalez homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Tampa Bay 5-0 Saturday despite the Rays' hidden ball trick.

Skip Schumaker added four hits for the NL West leaders. Tampa Bay lost its fourth straight, matching their longest skid this year.

Most everything went well for the Dodgers, except when Tampa Bay got tricky. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria tagged out an unsuspecting Juan Uribe when he lifted his foot off the bag while chatting with coach Tim Wallach in the fourth inning.

The rarely seen play occurred after A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, with all three runners moving up.

First baseman James Loney wound up with the ball behind the mound. He flipped it to shortstop Yunel Escobar, who then quickly tossed the ball to Longoria while no one seemed to be looking. Longoria stood behind Uribe and waited to trap him.

Greinke (10-3) struck out seven and walked one. Roberto Hernandez (6-12) gave up five runs and eight hits in four innings.

GIANTS 3, ORIOLES 2

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hunter Pence hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the sixth inning as San Francisco's stagnant lineup finally got to Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen.

Chris Davis hit his majors-leading 42nd home run for the Orioles leading off the eighth against Santiago Casilla, then grounded out against closer Sergio Romo to end it with a runner on first.

Nick Markakis added three hits, but Baltimore had its three-game winning streak.

Guillermo Moscoso (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings and Romo earned his 27th save in 31 chances. Chen (6-5) took the loss.
