Greinke (6-2) picked up the win after throwing 7.2 shutout innings against the Marlins on Sunday, giving up just four hits and one walk while striking out six.

He ended his nine-start winless streak, and did so in dominant fashion. The major-league leader in ERA threw 101 pitches, recording nine groundball outs to go along with the six punchouts, and only allowed runners past first base in the fourth and seventh innings. Greinke hasn't allowed a run his last three starts (20.2 innings) and has turned in quality starts in all but one of his 16 outings this season.

Greinke took a no decision Tuesday against the Cubs despite throwing six shutout innings with three hits and two walks allowed against five strikeouts.

Greinke now has three straight no decisions despite allowing just one run in 19.2 combined innings. He has thrown a quality start in 14 out of his 15 starts this year -- only a five-run outing June 2 against Colorado doesn't qualify, and he still made it through six innings. His ERA is down to 1.70.

Greinke scattered four hits over seven scoreless innings, struck out eight and walked none in Thursday's no-decision against the Rangers.

Greinke retired his first nine batters on 34 pitches without allowing a ball to hit an outfielder. He lowered his ERA to 1.81 but didn't pick up the win as the Dodgers failed to score until the bottom of the ninth inning. The hard-luck right-hander is 0-2 with a 1.99 ERA in his past eight starts, and the Dodgers have fewer than three runs in six of them -- including Saturday's 2-1 loss at San Diego, when Greinke went the distance for the first time this season. As it stands, Greinke will take the mound again Tuesday at the Cubs for his next scheduled start.

Greinke pitched well Sunday against the Cardinals, allowing just one run through 6.2 innings with eight strikeouts and just one walk. He did not factor into the decision as the Dodgers blew a late lead.

The veteran was unlucky not to earn his long awaited sixth win of the season and has not won a start since May 5. He continues to post quality start after quality start, however, and has allowed more than three runs just once this season. Greinke will face the Padres in San Diego in his next scheduled start.

Greinke was tagged for five runs on 10 hits and a walk over six innings in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Rockies.

Greinke's 1.48 ERA entering Tuesday's start was tied for the best mark in baseball, but it unsurprisingly took a hit in the league's most hitter-friendly environment. The five runs and 10 hits were both season highs for Greinke, but he was at least able to relieve the strain on the bullpen by going six innings. Fortunately, the offense was able to take him off the hook for a loss, as Alex Guerrero's ninth-inning grand slam gave the Dodgers a 9-8 lead that they wouldn't squander.

Greinke was solid in a no-decision Wednesday, tossing six innings of one-run ball, giving up just three hits and two walks while striking out nine.

Greinke has now given up one earned run or less in each of his five May starts, and has lasted six innings or more in every start this season. He's been a model of consistency from both fantasy and real-life standpoints, as the right-hander has turned in a quality start in each of his 10 outings this year. His only mistake Wednesday was a third-inning solo shot served up to Cameron Maybin, which left him without a decision on the evening. On the bright side, his nine punch-outs were a season-best, giving him a 58:14 K:BB ratio on the season.

Greinke was a tough-luck loser Saturday, allowing only four hits in six innings while striking out five in the 7-1 loss to the Rockies.

Greinke has been fantastic this season and he maintained his ERA at a 1.52 clip. If he continues to pitch like this, he could be in-line for Cy Young votes. Greinke has another good matchup in his next start when he hosts the Padres next Friday.

Greinke's start has been pushed to Monday, as Clayton Kershaw will take the ball Sunday following Saturday's rainout, AM 570's David Vassegh reports.

Owners will not get two starts from Greinke this week, although he's been so good lately that he should be in all lineups regardless of whether he has one or two starts in a week. Instead he will be in line for two starts next week, and it could work out for the best over the long haul as he will miss a start in Coors Field and instead make his next start at home against the Marlins.

Greinke gave up one unearned run on two hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 7.2 innings Tuesday in Milwaukee to improve to 5-0 on the season.

He has now won a career-best 10 straight decision and has not lost in 14 starts since Aug. 9 at Milwaukee. Greinke has quietly been one of the five best pitchers in baseball over the past half season or so, and he has certainly justified his draft day price thus far.

Greinke (4-0) allowed seven hits, two walks, and three runs to go with six strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

With Wednesday's win, Greinke is now 6-0 with a 2.28 ERA in eight starts against the Giants. The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner is dominant not only against the Giants but the entire NL West. Greinke improved to 22-1 with a 1.95 ERA in 32 career starts against NL West teams since signing a six-year, $147 million contract with the Dodgers in December 2012. Greinke will look to continue his dominance in his next scheduled start Tuesday at Milwaukee.
