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.

Greinke allowed one run on two hits over six innings while striking out four and walking one against the Padres on Tuesday night. He did not factor in the decision.

After the Padres put a run on the board in the first inning, Greinke was pretty much untouchable the rest of the way. The bullpen let him down Tuesday, however, as the six relievers who followed him into the game allowed a combined six runs. Greinke is positioned to make his second start of the week Sunday in Arizona.

Greinke made a minor mechanical adjustment in a minor league game on Wednesday and allowed two runs over seven innings with a 9:0 K:BB, the Dodgers' official site reports.

"Not many guys can make one pitch and completely turn their game around," catcher Yasmani Grandal said. "He was like, they're not going to hit me anymore. It was a mechanical thing, Honey said something with his face or the way he was looking." Greinke looks to be on target for a strong season again in 2015.

Greinke will not make another Cactus League start, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Instead, Greinke will pitch in a minor league game Wednesday and then rest for two extra days before taking the hill for his 2015 regular-season debut. Greinke failed to make it out of the fourth inning Friday against the Giants, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks with three strikeout over 3.2 innings. He did not throw more than four innings in any spring start.

Greinke tossed three innings of one-run ball on Monday and reported better command this time around, the Dodgers' official site reports.

"Nothing was good, nothing was bad," said Greinke, who allowed a solo homer to Josh Phegley. "Better than my last start. Today I mixed it up better than the last start, better location with my fastball." No health concerns for Greinke at this point.
