On Thursday, Zack Greinke lost for the third time on the season when he was defeated by the Cincinnati Reds on the road. He allowed two runs on four hits in six innings of work in that game while striking out three and walking one. Greinke has 92 strikeouts in 85 innings this season and he has only walked 18 batters.
Justin Morneau has faced Greinke more than any of the other Rockies, but he is just 7-for-39 against him with seven strikeouts.
