Greinke (14-11) got the loss against the Rockies on Friday, giving up three earned runs on four hits over 7.1 innings, striking out six and walking two as the Diamondbacks fell 6-2. It was a strong outing for the right-hander but his teammates didn't offer him much run support and the Rockies tagged the Arizona bullpen for three earned runs after he left the contest, eventually forcing Greinke to settle for his 11th defeat of the season. He's just 1-3 over his last five starts, but Greinke has provided excellent fantasy value overall once again at age 34 this season, as he's sporting a 3.21 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP to go along with a 193:41 K:BB over 201.2 innings.
Greinke (14-9) got the win Tuesday, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out five over 6.2 innings against the Rockies. Greinke was tagged for a couple of runs in the first inning, but he settled in from that point on to earn a quality start for the fourth time in five tries. The 34-year-old was able to keep the ball in the yard in this one after he entered Tuesday's tilt having allowed at least one home run in nine of his last 10 starts. It was also his first outing since July without a walk. He'll take a solid 3.11 ERA into Sunday's start in Houston.
Greinke allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings Thursday against the Braves. He did not factor into the decision. Greinke looked uncomfortable on the mound from the very start of the game, uncharacteristically throwing two wild pitches in the first inning. Things didn't improve for him from there, as he allowed a two-run homer in the fourth followed by a solo shot in the sixth. While his ERA still sits at a strong 3.08 mark -- good for eighth in the National League -- Greinke has now allowed multiple home runs in three of his past five starts.
Greinke (13-9) took the loss against the Dodgers on Friday, giving up three earned runs on six hits over 7.1 innings. He struck out five and walked one in Arizona's eventual 3-2 defeat. Greinke ended with a solid final line and worked deep into the game, but he was denied his 14th win as the Diamondbacks couldn't muster up much run support against counterpart Hyun-Jin Ryu. He's just 1-4 over his last six starts, but Greinke is putting together a fine season overall, with a 2.97 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP over 176 innings.
Greinke (13-8) picked up the win against the Mariners on Sunday, giving up one unearned run on five hits over 6.2 innings, striking out six and walking two in the Diamondbacks' 5-2 victory. The right-hander hadn't emerged victorious in his last four starts, so it was nice to see him get back in the win column with this excellent effort against Seattle. Greinke is having a terrific season on the whole for Arizona, as he's now boasting a 2.93 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and 171 strikeouts through 168.2 innings.
