The team will roll with Clayton Kershaw on short rest for Game 4 on Thursday. He has a 0.96 ERA in three career postseason starts on 3-4 days rest. Zack Greinke, who was penciled in for Game 4, will instead start Game 5, if needed.


Dodgers' Zack Greinke fires seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball in Game 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke twirled a gem but wasn't a factor into the decision in Game 2 of the National League Division Series at home against the Cardinals on Saturday.

Greinke fired seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball. He was pulled for J.P. Howell in the eighth inning, who allowed a game-tying two-run home run to Matt Carpenter, knocking Greinke out of the decision. Greinke struck out seven and walked two in a 3-2 win. He tossed 103 pitches, 71 of which were strikes.

In 31 career starts at Dodger Stadium, Greinke has posted a 2.24 ERA with a 209:40 L:BB ratio over 205 1/3 innings. He has yet to allow more than four earned runs in a start at home for the Dodgers.

Zack Greinke eyeing upcoming FA market with opt-out looming


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"What happens with Lester and Scherzer will say a lot," Greinke said Monday.

Greinke will have three years and $71 million remaining on his contract after the 2015 season, but he could be willing to look for a bigger payday, either from his own team or on the market, if Lester and Scherzer can cash in during the upcoming offseason. In a season-and-a-half with the Dodgers, Greinke is 26-9 with a 2.67 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 4.04 K:BB ratio, with 275 strikeouts in 296 1/3 innings.

Zack Greinke loses last start before All-Star break


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) In a battle of All-Star pitchers Wednesday, Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer outdueled Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke in a 4-1 win for Detroit. Greinke allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks, while striking out eight in seven innings.

Greinke (11-5) got off to a rough start Wednesday. He allowed a leadoff triple to Austin Jackson before Ian Kinsler drove him home with an RBI single. Don Kelly added a two-out RBI single in the first inning to give Detroit an early 2-0 lead.

Greinke would settle down, though, retiring seven straight batters after Kelly's RBI single. However, he ran into more trouble in the fourth inning, as he allowed singles to the first three batters. The last single was an RBI hit from Nick Castellanos.

Greinke would toss three scoreless innings to finish his day, but the Dodgers could not rally against Scherzer, who allowed just one run in seven innings. Greinke lost for the second time in four starts.

Greinke will not make another start before the All-Star break. The team has not yet announced its post-break rotation plans.
