He also helped his own cause with his third long ball of the season, touching up Clayton Kershaw with a second-inning solo shot. Greinke is putting in another solid campaign in his age-35 season, as he's sporting a 3.08 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP and a 93:15 K:BB over 108 innings.

      Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Charged with loss

      Zack Greinke (8-3) surrendered five runs on 11 hits while striking out two through seven innings Wednesday to take the loss against the Rockies.The right-hander was in unusual form Wednesday, allowing a season-high 11 hits in a tough outing. Greinke held the Rockies scoreless until the fourth inning, when he gave up a two-run homer to Daniel Murphy. He then retired seven of the next eight batters until trouble knocked again in the seventh, when the 35-year-old allowed three runs on six hits, including five straight. On the bright side, Greinke was coming off 7.1 shutout innings against the Nationals and had not allowed a run over his last two starts. Despite the loss, he still owns a 2.91 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 87:14 K:BB. Greinke will look to rebound when he takes the mound for a Monday start against the Dodgers.

He'll look to improve that number again Thursday against the Nationals.

      Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Start pushed to Saturday

      Zack Greinke (neck) will start Saturday against the Blue Jays, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.Greinke apparently dealt with a bit of a stiff neck during his previous outing, during which he allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two in four innings. While his neck is responding well, the Arizona Diamondbacks want to play it safe and give the veteran right-hander an extra day of rest before his next outing. As such, he'll flip places in the rotation with Merrill Kelly, who is now scheduled to start Friday's series opener in Toronto.

      Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Misses out on two-start week

      Zack Greinke is scheduled to make his next start Monday against the Rockies in Colorado, Shaun O'Neill of MLB.com reports.Much to the chagrin of Greinke's fantasy managers, the Arizona Diamondbacks' decision to add a fifth starter (Taylor Clarke) to their rotation Saturday in San Francisco will result in the ace missing out on a cushy two-start week. After turning in his eighth consecutive quality start in Tuesday's loss to San Diego, Greinke will now be challenged to keep that streak going when he returns to the hill at the hitters' haven that is Coors Field.

      Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Notches 2,500th K in loss

      Zack Greinke (6-2) took the loss against San Diego on Tuesday, pitching seven innings and allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five.Greinke was rolling until the sixth, when a Manny Machado run-scoring single and a two-run homer off the bat of Eric Hosmer gave the Padres a lead they would not relinquish. On a positive note, the Arizona ace threw 98 pitches and showed no lingering signs of the abdominal tightness that forced him out of his previous start. He also became the fifth active pitcher to reach the 2,500 strikeout mark with a whiff of Franmil Reyes in the fourth inning. Despite the loss, Greinke extended his streak of quality starts to 10. He will carry his elite 2.89 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 67:9 K:BB into his next start in San Francisco on Sunday.
